Google Assistant has gained a new feature that makes it capable of streaming YouTube TV. So this effectively means that Google Home users – including those owning a Home Mini or Home Max – can now control their YouTube TV broadcasts with their voice.

For the uninitiated, YouTube TV is a streaming video service that delivers live TV from some of the major broadcast networks out there, including the likes of ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC. Aside from these, content from “popular cable networks” is delivered as well.
The service was launched back in February, and have been expanding steadily since then.
