Amidst the launch of the Pixel 3, Pixel Slate, and Home Hub yesterday, Google also quietly released a new Chromecast media streamer. Seeing as up until now, if you said "OK Google" to your phone, and wanted to ask Google Assistant something, it was essentially useless until you unlocked it. A new smart home control panel gives you touch access to all the usual Google Assistant functionality, like lights and thermostats.
