Google announced in a blog post a new feature called "stream transfer." The feature will allow you to tell your Google Assistant device to move what you're streaming to a different device. If you've ever been listening to music while in your office and then decide to head to the kitchen to get dinner going, then you know the frustration. Getting the music to resume where you were on the new device can be annoying when it loses the place in your jam. It seems that Stream transfer will let you move music, videos, podcasts, and more by voice, the touchscreen of your smart display, or via the Google Home app. Here's how Google says the feature can work.

The crowd still matters for live sports broadcasting

At opposite sides of the globe, two top-flight international football events have kicked off over the last week. In semi-vaccinated Europe the month-long Euro 2020 tournament began on Friday June 11th, with 11 countries hosting the competition across Europe. On Sunday June 13th in Brazil (a country which had now lost nearly half a million lives to COVID-19) the 2021 Copa America kicked off, with the final taking place on July 10th2021. While Euro 2020 is taking place in front of reduced capacity crowds of fans in stadiums, the Copa America is being played behind closed doors with entire participating national delegations required to be vaccinated, and delegations limited to 65 members. Euro 2020’s official motto ‘Live it. For Real’ can be taken as a declaration of intent to host a top-flight mass sporting event as close to pre-pandemic conditions as feasibly possible. The criteria for live spectator participation for UEFA (the event organisers) was key to this.

Every host must guarantee there will be fans at their games."
