Tired of using your phone to transfer music from one Google Home device to another? Do not worry anymore! You can now transfer most media to any device with your voice.

This voice command applies to all Google Home, Nest, and Chromecast devices, as well as any speaker groups you may have created. Other Bluetooth devices are not supported in the current version of this feature.

Voice commands

On any device connected to Google Assistant, you can use one of the following commands (as always, say “Okay, Google” or “Hey, Google” first):

  • “Transfer to [X]. “
  • “Move [the] music to [X]. “
  • “Cast to [X]. “

Replace [X] with “this device” to indicate the device you use or name any other device connected to your Google Assistant.

To see the list of devices you can cast to, tap the Cast icon. You can also open your Google Home app on your smartphone, then tap “Media”.

Note that if you say “Transfer my music “or” Move my video to [X] device “. Google thinks you are trying to upload your media files from one device to another, and will provide instructions accordingly.

Also, if you ask Google to “play music on this device” or “play Lil Nas [X] here “, it will replace whatever is playing and read the new request on the device you specified.
