Google Home app now lets you control TVs

The Google Home app lets you control compatible TVs running Android TV or Google TV. 

It can also help you control fans, air purifiers, TVs, and even vacuum cleaners.

The controls were supposed to be added to the device’s control page. 

After the official announcement, users are also seeing the new controls on the Google Home app.

The new touch controls include the ability to turn the volume up/down, mute/unmute/ and more.

These control features were already available for Nest Hub devices

The new Google Home TV controls are arriving via a server-side update.

Also, the controls are available for some but not all of the devices.

The controls are a bit different from those on Google Cast-enabled TVs and Android TVs. 

Do note that this feature isn’t widely rolling out yet, and is available only to a limited set of users.
