Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has announced two new versions of its Chromecast, in addition to revealing new features on its Chromecast app.
According to The Verge:

The biggest by far is universal voice search.
When the update rolls out to Android and iOS devices, you’ll no longer have to go hunting through all your other apps to find the things you want to watch. Instead of digging through the Netflix, Google Play, or Hulu apps to see who has the newest episode of, say, Rick & Morty, you can just open the Chromecast app and speak (or type) your search there. The app will tell you which services have the show you’re looking for, and will even direct you to apps that you don’t have if the show or movie can be found there.
Google is also adding new playback features into the Chromecast app — another clear attempt to get you to use the Chromecast app every time you sit down to watch something on your television. The addition of playback controls and universal search are welcome changes, though, especially considering how useless the Chromecast app was before this impending update.
