Google Cast app rebranded as Google Home

Thursday 27 October 2016 | 11:55 CET | News
Google has announced an update to its Google Cast app, adding new tabs and rebranding it Google Home. The company said the idea is to use the Google Home app as a one-stop destination to manage all compatible Chromecast and upcoming Google Home devices. The app also has a new icon and new "Watch" and "Discover" tabs to make it easier to find content and applications for devices. The updated Google Home app will be available on Google Play and the App Store later this week.
