Are you tired of using multiple remotes to control your smart TV or Android TV? With Google Home or Google Home Mini, you can easily connect and control your TV with just your voice. In this guide, we will show you how to connect your Google Home to your smart TV and use it to control your TV.
Before we begin, you need to connect your Google Home to your phone. If you are not sure how to do it, you can check out our previous guide on how to connect Google Home to your phone. Once you have connected your Google Home to your phone, make sure that your TV has the Google Chromecast feature. Your TV must support or have Google Chromecast for you to use Google Home to control your TV.
After ensuring that your TV has the Google Chromecast feature, open the Google Home app on your phone. It will automatically connect your TV to your Google Home. Your TV name will be displayed on the app, indicating that your TV is connected. Now, let’s see how it works and what controls we can use on the TV.
Using Google Home, you can open apps like YouTube or Netflix, pause, play, stop, skip, and adjust the volume. You can also launch your photos or videos on your TV and perform other commands. For instance, say “Ok Google, open YouTube on my TV,” to launch the app on your TV. To pause, say “Ok Google, pause my TV,” and to resume, say “Ok Google, play.” You can also say “Ok Google, stop” to stop the video or “Ok Google, skip” to skip to the next video.
To adjust the volume, say “Ok Google, volume up” or “Ok Google, volume down.” You can also mute or unmute the TV by saying “Ok Google, mute my TV” or “Ok Google, unmute my TV.” To turn off the TV, say “Ok Google, turn off my TV.”
In conclusion, controlling your smart TV or Android TV using Google Home is simple and convenient. Just make sure that your TV has the Google Chromecast feature and that your TV, Google Home, and phone are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Try experimenting with other commands and see what else you can do. Say goodbye to multiple remotes and enjoy the convenience of voice control with Google Home.
