To Prompt Google Assistant

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

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

Google Home has three smart speakers that respond to the same wake words and commands. The 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.
