Previously known as Google cast, the new Google home app enables you to control all your Google Home devices and Chromecast. While implementing new changes and improvements, the app still saves the function of the former Google cast which is also currently available on both the Google Play store and iTunes store. Besides the new name, the app gets a new app icon designed by the shape of a house.
As for new features, the app is updated with two new tabs "Watch" and "Discover." With the Watch and Discover tab, you can search tons of Chromecast- supported apps and watch trending content and videos on apps like Netflix, HBO Now and Youtube. With all features rolled into one, you can perform all the functions in one app at any time.
Uninstall the app:
1. Go to Settings menu;
2. Choose Apps or Application manager;
3. Touch the app you want to remove;
4. Press Uninstall.
