This has been available for Netflix since Google Home launched but Channel 4 have activated theirs.

Fingers crossed the others will now pull their fingers out.

Be sure to link your All4 account under the Videos section on your Home app: the get deal button links to the Google support page.

The blurb from Channel 4 below.

Google Assistant on your Google Home device
You can ask your Google Home device to play an All 4 show on a Chromecast device by saying…
• Ok Google, Play Bake Off on the Living Room TV
Google Assistant on your mobile device
You can ask the Google Assistant to search for an show in the All 4 app by saying
• Ok Google, Play The Inbetweeners

You can also control your Chromecast device by saying:
Ok Google…

• Pause
• Play
• Rewind 30 Seconds
• Fast forward to 5 mins before the end
• Next/previous episode
• What is playing?
• How long is left?
• Stop

Hi, with the free calling it was more of a deal as it was a function that allowed people to save money on phonecalls etc whereas this is considered more info based as it's just another way of watching All4 on your TV
If my experience of Google Home is anything to go by - good luck with this!
Just tried it and worked very quickly and easily... Must faster than my fire stick in fact! Hope iPlayer and itvhub are next!
Nice! Thanks for the heads up OP
