Google’s Nest Hub smart displays are getting some new entertainment options today with Netflix launching on both the Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max. The service is rolling out starting today, and it’ll be available in every market where both Netflix and Google’s Nest devices are available.
You can link your Netflix account using the Google Home app or the Google Assistant app, and from there, you can use the smart displays to watch Netflix. The app support voice commands such as “Hey Google, play Queer Eye”, or you can ask to open the Netflix app and browse it yourself using the touch screen. Playback commands also work with voice, or you can use quick gestures, a Nest Hub feature that lets you play and pause by just raising your hand while facing the device.
The Google Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max already supported a handful of video streaming services, such as Hulu and CBS All Access. Additionally, services like Disney+, HBO Max, and Netflix itself, already let users cast content from a phone to a smart display.
Google has been making smart displays stand on their own compared to smart speakers with features that make use of their unique hardware, such as the recently-added support for Duo video calls. If you happen to want more than one, Google is currently offering $75 off when you buy two Google Nest Hub Max devices, making the set cost $383 instead of $458.
