As with the Google TV application, in the new version of Google Home now it allows us to change the type of remote control between its two options.

To do this we just have to open the Google Home remote control and in your menu options select the new option ‘Check with the crosshead’. A crosshair will be activated to navigate through the interface and channels of the television with simple presses on its buttons.

Google Home will remember the type of control activated so that it reappears the next time we open the remote again. Of course, we have to configure it for each television. The new control with crosshead will also appear if we activate the remote control from the Android 11 shutdown menu or from the Android 12 quick settings.
