Home may have only been living with us for a short time, but it’s quickly becoming our favorite thing in the house. And now it’s starting to play a little nicer with the other things we love, with Netflix otos support beginning to roll out to users.

First spotted by Android lice, the update brings a new Videos otos tab to the Home app’s Assistant settings, inside which you will see options for linking your Netflix account enabling otos. As described in the app, the new features, which require a separate Chromecast Netflix subscription, will allow users to stream photos to their TV “play shows movies by asking your Assistant.”

st week, announced it was opening its Actions on platform, allowing developers to tap directly into the digital assistant to bring voice comms for things like food ordering, news, shopping, as well as enabling two-way conversations with the device. So we should expect a lot more of these types of useful interactions making their way to Home in the coming months.

The impact on you at home: Home is an entirely new platform for the company its developers, the quicker it can gain some killer features app support, the better off users will be. But it’s not just about early adopters. The home-based digital assistant is the wave of the future, clearly has an eye on Amazon exa as it works to exp the capabilities of Home as quickly as possible.
