Nest Audio to gain 'home theater' pairing with Chromecast

16 Nov 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

Google is preparing an update to let its Nest Audio speakers "become your home theater sound system" when used together with Chromecast, according to WSJ and 9to5Google.

Wireless home theater

The $99 Nest Audio will soon learn new tricks. Google has confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that it "is working on Nest Audio-Chromecast integration". And 9to5Google has spotted the following text in Google's own search results. - "With Chromecast & Google TV, Nest Audio becomes your home theater sound system." We are not yet sure how it will work exactly. The text suggests that the Nest Audio speakers can be paired to the new Chromecast (with Google TV) and work as its default TV speakers, wirelessly.

Roku and Amazon are offering similar functionality, and Apple recently introduced tvOS 14.2 that lets users set up HomePod(s) as default speakers for Apple TV 4K. With the update, Apple also enabled Dolby Atmos via the wireless audio connection. That is all we know for now. It is unclear when Google is planning to introduce the new feature. - Source: WSJ, 9to5Google
