You can also stream anytime on your Android TV or cast Disney Plus from your compatible mobile device to your Assistant-enabled devices by opening the streaming service's mobile app and tapping the Cast icon. 

This isn't the first streaming update Google's added this year. Netflix came to smart displays in July, while Zoom and Meet group calling also made their way to smart displays this summer. That's in addition to other smart display updates like better broadcasting, multiroom audio and visual games like Jeopardy.
