"Rumah" adalah versi baru aplikasi Chromecast.  Pelajari cara memperbarui

Chromecast, now Google Cast, is one of my favorite Google gadgets. This is because the accessory turns any TV with HDMI into a multimedia center, where games, applications and other devices can be mirrored. With the launch of Google Home, Big G decided to remodel the main Cast app to make the user interface more uniform. Learn how to update your application below.

The Home application – formerly Google Cast – has the same functions as the previous version. Soon, you will have access to exclusive promotions for those who own a Chromecast and also a page where the applications that have the mirroring function are gathered, that is, that can be mirrored on the TV.

As I mentioned above, the name of the app refers to Google Home, which is a virtual assistant that can manage various tasks using voice commands. Thus, the new application will be the control center for Home, Google Cast and Google Cast Ultra.

The search bar at the top of the app has been removed and at the top is now the mirror icon, which has changed, and now displays other accessories that can be managed by the same app. The applications installed on the device and which are compatible with Google Cast are separated into a special section so that the user can identify them.

In addition, we have no significant changes for those who use only Cast, not Home. However, I think it is worth keeping the main app updated to keep up with the news that Google has been implementing in its line of smart accessories. If you want to install the new Home, skip to the next topic:

How to download and install Google Home for Android

Google will update the Cast app gradually, but you can get ahead and install the official Home APK on your Android manually. It is available in APK Mirror (version 1.19.26), and you can download it by clicking on this link. The file is official, that is, authenticated by Google itself.

If you prefer, wait for the update from Google Cast to Google Home Play Store. According to Google, the official update is being released gradually.
