To Prompt Google Assistant

Using the Chromecast audio with Google Home gives you a fantastic aural experience.  You'll sync any device that's associated together with your Chromecast with Google Home.  Google Home enables you to play music and also gives you access to the Google Assistance service. Google Assistance listens to only conversations in its environments but only follows commands when prompted. 

To prompt the Google Assistance, you need to inspire it by saying 'Ok Google' or 'Hey Google' then issue it with the desired command. When you have Google Assistance, you do not need to move from one room to another to control your devices. You can, for example, adjust the volume of your music when you are lying on your bed without moving to the sitting room. You can also switch your gadgets on or off from any corner of your house.

Google Home has three smart speakers who respond to the same wake of words and commands. The only difference between the three speakers is their size, sound quality, and price. Google Home features enable you to play or pause your music, adjust the volume, or mute the microphone.
