I’ve been scouring the source code for Disney+ via inspect element and broke the news that a Group Watch feature might be coming to the service shortly. In that code, I also found reference to Google Home integration, which you can see in the screenshot below:
The information states that the user will be able to control their Disney+ app with the Google Assistant on supported devices, probably a Google Nest/Home device and smartphones. This addition will be a welcome one, as people on Reddit really seemed to want this feature. Google Assistant functionality on an account appears to be linked with one profile. The user would then be able to navigate the app using the Google Assistant.
Personally, I don’t use the Google Home ecosystem, but it would be interesting to see if there is scope for Amazon Alexa in the future! What do you think about this? Are you looking forward to it?
