Google testing 'Move to' casting controls on Nest Hub

Google's decision to run different software on its Nest smart displays has led to a confusing jumble of features. Some displays have features the others don't, and Google is always testing something or another that further muddies the waters. Today, Google has started rolling out a change to the Now Playing interface on the Nest Hub. Instead of volume controls, you get "Move to" casting controls.

I wish Google's Smart Displays were the kitchen companions they promised to be

I wish Google's Smart Displays were the kitchen companions they promised to be

When Google first announced its Smart Display platform, one of the focal points was the kitchen. The Google Assistant would be able to find you recipes, put items into a shopping list, convert units, set timers, and answer simple cooking questions to keep your hands free for the actual task of preparing and cooking a meal.

In practice, I've found my smart display to be little more than a glorified timer and music streaming box, with my smartphone continuing to be the invaluable research and display tool I rely on when cooking from a recipe or learning a technique for the first time.

Google's Nest Hub could be an incredible productivity tool with a few minor updates

Google's Nest Hub could be an incredible productivity tool with a few minor updates

Smart displays are still in their infancy. While they might take inspiration from the basic internet appliances that failed to take off in the 2000s (anyone remember the Chumby One?), smart displays as we know them today started with Amazon's Echo Show. The idea of adding a screen to a smart speaker may have sounded counterproductive at the time, since they essentially are less-versatile tablets, but smart displays have been an undeniable hit with buyers.
