Google Home is the new name for Google Cast

Google Home is coming soon, and it is part of an effort by Google to make your home smarter. However, to do that, Home also works with the Chromecast. That is why Google just renamed the Google Cast app as “Google Home”.

So far, it is the third name change for the app to control your Chromecast. First, it was simply called as “Chromecast”, which then, changed to “Google Cast” and now, is “Google Home”.

The updated app serves as a one place for you to control your Home and Chromecast devices. However, the app itself is now focused more on the media. The app consists of two tabs, Watch and Discover. While the Watch tab displays entertainment content from different supported apps, Discover tab shows a list of app you can use with your connected device.

Google will start to roll out the update on Android and iOS in this week.
