Google Home has a new fun feature for families! Beginning next week, you can purchase select Disney Little Golden Books that are compatible with the Google Home assistant. As you read aloud to your little ones, Google Home will play sound effects and music that go along with the story and help to bring it to life with a magic that only Disney can manufacture.

The fun begins when you say “Hey, Google, let’s read along with Disney,” which gives the signal to the Google Home assistant that you are about to begin Disney story time.

Thanks to the genius of Google’s technology and the magic of Disney, if you skip ahead in the story, the Google Home assistant instantly catches up to that point in the book and plays the corresponding sound effects and music. The timing is perfect and the sounds are seamless, meaning there are no long pauses or skipping while the Google Home assistant attempts to determine the point from which you’re reading.

If you pause in reading because of an interruption, a bathroom break or to answer question from your inquisitive little ones, the Google Home assistant also realizes that and adjusts. Instead of going forward and playing sound effects for the story after you’ve paused, the assistant plays calming music until you resume reading the book. Think of it as a musical intermission.

Several Google Home-compatible Disney Little Golden Book titles will be available beginning next week. Those include Moana, Toy Story 3, Jack-Jack Attack, Coco, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Cinderella, The Three Little Pigs, Mickey Mouse and His Spaceship and Mickey’s Christmas Carol. More titles will become available before the end of the year. Find the stories near the Google Home Mini displays at Wal-Mart, Target and Barnes and Noble retailers, and turn story time into a magical experience for you and your children to share.
