Hi , I'm Agent Williams .

Welcome to the lab .

You wanna control your TV with your voice , but aren't sure how to set it up .

I can help .

Here's how to connect that to your Google home speaker .

Here's what you need .

Any chromecast or chromecast ultra , any Google home speaker , it needs to be set up your phone with the Google Home app .

A strong wifi network .

This will take about 10 minutes plug the chrome cast into an HDM I port on your TV .

If you're using a chrome cast ultra plug the power cord into the wall outlet .

If you have a regular chrome cast , plug the power cord into the wall or a USB port on the back of the TV .

But if you want to turn your TV , on or off with your voice , a wall outlet will work better for most TV .
