Poweramp adds Chromecast support and Google Assistant voice commands

After stalling in development for a few years, popular music player Poweramp has found the secret to rejuvenation again. The app got updated with a brand new interface in December, added Android Auto compatibility last month, and is now implementing a feature every media player should really have: Chromecast support. As a bonus, it also works with Assistant.

If you have a Chromecast target nearby, you’ll see the familiar icon on the top right of the player interface in Poweramp.

Google Assistant can read your screen and offer contextual info, without you explicitly asking it to

Google Assistant does a lot of things.

Bilingual support was mentioned when Discover launched, but only for English and Spanish in the US — although it was already working for English and Hindi in India.

Most Android TV devices should now be controllable by Google Home

Owners of Android TV boxes and sets have been asking one question ever since Google Home and Assistant launched: why can’t I control my device with voice commands from my smart speakers? It works for Chromecast, so why wouldn’t Android TV be supported? Worse yet, some things half-worked, like turning the TV on/off, and asking for YouTube videos or photos from your personal collection. But more intricate controls like volume, playing videos from other sources, pausing, or turning on subtitles, weren’t possible.
