Google has added three new services that support Google Home voice commands with Chromecast devices: HBO Now, CBS All Access, and The CW.

For HBO and CBS, you’ll need to first link those respective accounts in the Google Home app (The CW is free, so that should just work), after which you’ll be able to simply ask Google Home to control playback. Google’s smart assistant will even recognize specific shows on those networks, so you’ll be able to directly ask it to play, say, Riverdale or Star Trek: Discovery.

The three new networks join the already supported list of YouTube, YouTube TV, Google Photos, and Netflix, which already work with Google Home and Chromecast for voice commands. The update should be available today.
