Smart displays like the Nest Hub can now stream Disney+ directly, with help from Google Assistant.
If you own a Google Assistant-enabled smart display, like the Nest Hub or Nest Hub Max, you can now stream Disney+ directly to it.
Plus, to get you in the mood, you can buy a Mickey Mouse stand to give your Google Home and Nest Mini an iconic makeover.
Get Disney+ On Your Smart Display With Google Assistant
As reported on The Keyword, Google has now built support for Disney+ into its Google Assistant-enabled smart displays. This includes products directly from Google like the Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max, but also those from third-parties like Lenovo and JBL.
The feature is available to those in the US, Canada, Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK. Further regions will follow in the coming months.
Previously, the only available method to watch Disney+ on a Google smart display was by casting from a mobile device.
To get started, all you need to do is link your Disney+ account in the Google Home or Assistant app. Once done, simply speak to your smart display and ask it to play any movie or show from Disney+.
For example, if you want to watch the Mulan remake on Disney+, say, “Hey Google, play Mulan on Disney+”. Alternatively, you can use gesture control to browse.
Unfortunately, you can’t browse using the smart display’s touchscreen. This is something that Netflix supports on Google’s smart displays, having come to the platform in July.
Customize Your Google Home Mini With Mickey Mouse
To celebrate the new Disney+ integration, Google has teamed up with OtterBox to create a custom Mickey Mouse base accessory for the Google Home and Nest Mini.
The OtterBox Den Series featuring Mickey Mouse clips to the base of the device so that you can highlight your Disney appreciation to everyone.
Do More With Your Google Smart Display
Whether you really want to watch Disney+ on a small smart display is debatable, but it’s great to see more integrations arriving for Google’s smart displays to help it stand out against competitors like the Facebook Portal.
