Use Google Assistant on Your TV With Chromecast Visual Responses

If you own a Google Home and Chromecast you can now have Google Assistant show weather and a list of YouTube videos on your Chromecast. You will need a Chromecast 2nd generation or Chromecast Ultra and a Google Home device. After you have linked the devices to your account and they are on the same network you are ready to begin. This will NOT work on Android TV, Chromecast 1st Gen or Chromecast Built-In.

Weather
“Show me the weather on (Chromecast name)”
“Show me the weather in (place)”

YouTube
“Show me (Channel name) on my TV”
“Show me Tech With Brett on Chromecast Ultra”
“Show me what’s on YouTube”

Once you start Google Assistant on the TV it will wait for you to give a response by say the video number, name, or choose a on screen command available like show more or go back.

Make sure you set a default media device so you don’t need to specify the Chromecast device each time.

To do this you will need:
1. Mac, PC or Chrome OS
2. Google Chrome installed and Updated
3. Use the Cast option in the menu to cast Tab or Desktop

Sonoff – The $5 WiFi Smart Switch That’s Compatible With Alexa And Google Home

In this video I show you how to setup the Sonoff WiFi Smart Switch. This is a $5 smart outlet that allows you to automate pretty much any appliance. I use it with my google home mini to turn on and off all the devices in my electronics lab.

This is NOT a sponsored video. I purchased everything you see with my own money. See FAQ #5 for links to where you can purchase your own Sonoff switch.

Thanks to the suggestion of many comments, I learned that the Sonoff Pow model will report power consumption! I’ve ordered some of these and I’m excited to start using them! Thanks for those who have pointed out this information!

FAQ:
1) Is this compatible with iOS (iPhone) devices?

Yes, the iOS eWeLink app can be found at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ewelink-smart-home-control/id1035163158?mt=8

2) Is this compatible with Amazon echo (Alexa)?

Yes, a tutorial can be found at https://www.itead.cc/blog/ewelink-works-with-alexa-tutorial

3) I have an extension cord/appliance that has three prongs (live, neutral, ground). How do I wire up the sonoff?

Any appliance or device that has a metal chassis needs the ground wire to be considered safe. Appliances that have plastic chassis are safe (in the US) with only live and neutral. If you need the ground wire, I would suggest getting the Sonoff Pow model which has three terminals to accommodate the ground wire. https://www.itead.cc/sonoff-pow.html.

4) I don’t feel safe having to modify an extension cord. Is there a sonoff switch that I can just plug right into the wall and use?

Yes, it can be found here https://www.itead.cc/smart-socket.html

5) Where can I buy these for less than $5 and how long does shipping take?

The Sonoff can be purchased from the manufacturer’s website. The price before shipping (at the time of this video) is $4.85. I believe they ship from China which may take several weeks to arrive where you live. I ordered several that took about 2 weeks to arrive in the US. Here is a link https://www.itead.cc/sonoff-wifi-wireless-switch.html

6) Where can I download the android app?

Android eWeLink app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.coolkit&hl=en
