LG Music Flow to get Google Home and multi-room support

LG Music Flow gets updated with Google Home and multi-room support
LG Music Flow
LG's music streaming system arrived back in 2015, and now it is a few weeks away from a Google Cast update that promises to bring both Google Home support and multi-room capabilities. For now, the update is still being tested but should arrive by the end of February.

LG Music Flow is a wireless music streaming system that arrived on the market almost two years ago. Its users are currently allowed to stream their content using Google Cast, but this will be replaced by Chromecast in the long run. However, in the coming weeks, LG will release a software update that finally brings two features LG Music Flow users have been asking for - multi-room and Google Home support.

According to an announcement posted yesterday on LG's Music Flow Forum, the company "has prepared" Google Multiroom functionality and are working with Google to add Google Home support as well. The same source also reveals that the new software is currently being tested and, once the OTA is ready for release, LG would announce it on the Music Flow Forum.

LG also confirmed that old and new models would be updated as well. Now, it only remains to see how long will it take for the testing stage to close. We will keep an eye on this and report back as soon as we hear anything new, so stay tuned.

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.
