With Smartspeakers new Bundle deal, you can shop your Google Home Mini and Google Chromecast together, but can they can they work together? Yes, they can! Let’s show you how to set up your Google Home Mini to control your Google Chromecast or Android TV.
Your Google Home Mini can let you control what plays back on your Google Chromecast, all with the power of your voice. You will need to set up your Google Chromecast and your Google Home Mini on the same Wi-Fi network, and make sure that you’re logged into the same Google account on both of them. Once that’s done follow these instructions to link your two devices.
STEP 1: Download and open the Google Home App on your Smartphone or Tablet
STEP 2: Tap the Devices icon in the top right corner. (It looks like a box with a speaker in it.)
4. Tap Add New Device.
5. The subsequent screen gives instructions about how to connect to the Chromecast device, which will involve going to your Wi-Fi settings and choosing the appropriate device.
6. On your smartphone, go to your Wi-Fi settings and choose the ChromecastXXXX network. (The XXXX will be a different series of letters and numbers for each device.)
7. Return to the Google Home app and tap Continue.
8. Confirm that the code in the app matches the code on your TV and tap I See It.
