Ok, Google—Sling Launches on Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max

Good news, Slingers! Rolling out today, Sling TV is available on more devices in the Google Nest family. Now you can watch Sling on Nest Hub ($129) and Nest Hub Max ($229) smart displays, control Sling with your voice or use your voice to cast Sling to a Chromecast-connected device through a smart speaker or mobile device. You can bring Sling into any room in your home—the kitchen, office, bedroom…anywhere you want to watch your favorite shows, movies, sports and news. And for those of you who are new to Sling TV, you can get a 3-day free trial!

What is Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max?

If you’re not familiar with the Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max, they are smart displays that allow you to get personalized help from the Google Assistant, control your compatible smart home devices, and more. The seven-inch screen of Nest Hub and the 10-inch screen of Nest Hub Max are the perfect size to watch your favorite content in any room—from catching breaking news to watching your favorite show while you’re washing the dishes.

What’s New with Sling on Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max?

Now you can control Sling with your voice to watch shows on Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max, or use your voice to cast Sling to a Chromecast-connected TV. You can say “Hey Google, watch HGTV on Sling” (or any available channel you want to see!), as well as command controls like “play,” “pause,” “skip forward 10 seconds” or “stop” (but why would you ever want to stop Slinging?). On the Nest Hub Max, you can also pause and resume content on Sling with Quick Gestures by holding your hand up and looking at the device.

How Can I Get a Free Trial of Sling?

New customers who sign up for Sling through the Google Home app will receive a 3-day free trial to explore the sports, news, lifestyle, movies and shows we have to offer, no strings attached. To access Sling on your Nest Hub or Nest Hub Max, simply go to the Google Home app on your smartphone and link your Sling account. Internet connection and Sling TV app download required for access to service.

In addition to Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max, you can find Sling on more than 20 platforms, including smart TVs, tablets, game consoles, computers, smartphones, VR headsets and other streaming devices.
