Google Home built-in Remote control

Today I received and installed on Android 11 the Google Home version  update which includes the built-in remote functionality.

The remote comes with the following buttons:

  • Back
  • Google Assistant
  • Home
  • Mute
  • Volume up
  • Volume down
  • Touch pad for directional navigation and selection

There are no YouTube or Netflix buttons.

Tested the remote functionality and everything work as it should.

In the future, lets hope that Google will take into consideration adding support for NTFS file system also.

Hey there djtetei!

I appreciate you posting the features of the new virtual remote! I'm glad to hear that everything working as intended so far. As for the NTFS file system support, I'm sure you'll know what I'm going to say, but submitting feedback is the best way to let Google know what features or changes you'd like to see in the future. However, posting on the forums is also a good way to get the idea out there as well.

I hope you're doing well, and if you had any questions or concerns for me, please let me know!

Best regards,
