(Pocket-lint) - Disney+ supports Google Assistant voice controls on smart displays like the Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max.

Here's everything you need to know, including how to get setup so you can ask Google to play Frozen or Grey's Anatomy while you're cooking up dinner.

How to control Disney+ with Google Assistant on smart displays

To get started using Google Assistant commands with Disney+ on your smart display, you'll have to link your Disney+ subscription to your Google Home or Google Assistant app.

Once you do that, just say something like "Hey Google, play Togo" or "Hey Google, play The Mandalorian".

Link your Disney+ account

  1. Open the Google Home app on your mobile device.
  2. In the top right corner, tap your account.
  3. Make sure your mobile device is connected to the same Wi-Fi as your smart display.
  4. Go back to the home page, and in the top left corner, tap Add + > Videos.
  5. Next to Disney+, tap Link > Link Account.
  6. Complete the sign-in steps. You will need your Disney+ login credentials.

Voice command examples

  • "Hey Google, play Togo"
  • "Hey Google, play The Mandalorian"
  • "Hey Google, play Frozen 2"


Disney+ has been available on Google Assistant-enabled smart displays since late 2019. You can also use Google Assistant to play Netflix, Hulu, CBS All Access, and HBO content. This Disney+ capability is still great though, especially for those of you streaming from a Nest Hub or Hub Max.

Is that it?

Nope. Google also has a Frozen-themed interactive story, in which characters from the movie - Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and Kristoff - tell stories around the campfire that explore the world of Frozen 2.

To get started just say, "Hey Google, tell me a 'Frozen' story", and then you can pick which character you'd like to narrate.
