You can now ask Google to ‘move the music' to a different room

[2019.10.08, Tue 20:05] Want music to follow you around your house? You can now ask Google Assistant for that by saying, "Hey Google, move the music to the living room." At least, you can if you have a house filled with Google Home smart speakers, Google Nest Hub displays, and / or Chromecast dongles. Google just upgraded its multiroom audio offering with a feature it's calling Stream Transfer. I just tried the feature, and it's as simple as it sounds: start playing music on one Google Cast device, then ask Google Assistant to transfer it to another device in your house. You can say the name of a specific room if you've assigned it to one; otherwise, you'll need to say the name of the device to which you're transferring music. According to Google's new blog post, you can also use the Google Home app on your phone to sling music from device to device if you'd rather not say anything out loud, and you can beam videos back and forth between a Chromecast and a Nest Hub smart display, too. It doesn't look like you can move music from a Google Cast device back to your phone.
