Hey Google Nest Community!

Your home entertainment just got better with the new media view for Nest Hub displays. This is what you have been asking for: A simple view with convenient control for whole home entertainment. No more walking into every room to change the music volume, or turn off the TV. Kick your feet up and take control of the house from your favorite spot on the couch. 

What exactly can you control and what does it look like? Keep reading for all the benefits.



Start media in any room from a Nest Hub device
Getting ready for a party? Or Just want to dance around the house? 

  1. Open the media view
  2. Find your speaker group
  3. Hit play music. 
  4. Break free and dance away!

Just need one speaker on? You can control each device individually on the media view. 

Pause all connected media with the touch of a button
Hit the Pause all button on the top right corner to pause all connected media devices in the house. So you can pause media in the kitchen, the bedroom and the living room? Yes! This is perfect for dinner time when everyone is hooked on media. Tap pause all and bring the family together for dinner.

View all active media sessions playing on any connected device
You can see specific information about each connected device at one glance, including:

  • Which devices or groups the media is playing
  • Room the device is in
  • Content provider (e.g. Spotify, YouTube)
  • Song/show title
  • Artist name

Control active media sessions
You can control any connected media devices from one hub with the tap of your finger, including: 

  • Play media
  • Pause media
  • Audio - Tap next track or previous track
  • Video - Tap forward 30 seconds or back 10 seconds

Control the volume 
With multiple Nest devices around the house, the sound can get overwhelming. You can set volume thresholds to keep the sound as loud or quiet as you want it. Set the volume to stay at 50% after 9pm for a relaxing night.

What would it take to include Android TV devices or Chromecast Built-In devices to show up on this this list, even when not casting to them? That would ultimately give me full control of my entire home.

What if you pay your subscription to nest get a confirmation from google store and you still have no service after 6 months. 
Then you try over 20 times to get the service connected and can not even get one person who can talk proper English to respond
