Not long after introducing "Actions on Google" for third-party voice support through Google Assistant, Google adds Netflix and Google Photos support to Google Home. Even more, new YouTube Red subscribers get a free 6-month trial with their Google Home purchases by the end of 2016.

Google Home has just been updated. According to Google, support for both Netflix and Google Photos is now finally official. 

Netflix linking in the Google Home app will soon be available for both iOS and Android by the end of the week. Google Photos can be linked to the Google Assistant as well, so now it is very easy to share photos from the Chromecast-connected TV by using voice commands. Even more, it looks like Google Home can show Santa's latest whereabouts as he is tracked by Google Maps. The voice command for this is "Ok Google, where’s Santa right now?"

Those who buy a Google Home before the end of the year get six months free of YouTube Red, but the offer only applies to new subscribers only. The Google Home speaker can be acquired for $129 USD directly from Google.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
