Smart Automation - Use Google Assistant to Turn on TV Streaming Fast

Google Assistant is a beautifully intelligent technology with which one can communicate via voice to fulfill lots of our wishes. Additionally, you can learn how to use Google Assistant to turn on TV.

Turning on or off your TV or Media Cabinet from the comfort of your couch has never been easier. Just pick one of our Google Home compatible smart home hubs and pair with a smart outlet in which you plug in your TV or Media Cabinet.

Google Assistant is built into all Android products. Many other hardware manufacturers are also integrating Google Assistant into their products. As such, you will find that you interact with many products that run Google Assistant. 

With a smart TV compatible with Google Assistant, you can turn on your TV using Google Assistant.

There are three different ways to turn on the TV with Google Assistant.

Turn on Your Android TV with Google Assistant

Android TVs run on the Android operating system, which is owned by Google, making it easier for Google Home TV commands to be easily obeyed.

For an Android TV, it is straightforward to turn it on and off with Google Assistant. First, ensure that your TV and Google Assistant are on the same Wi-Fi network for easy communication.

Next, ensure that the Google Assistant and the TV are connected. Then, all you need to do is give your command to your Google Assistant or TV remote that has Google Assistant connected to your TV.

When all conditions are met, you can now turn on your TV with your Google Assistant. Just use your voice and command, "Hey Google, switch on the TV." And just like that, you have turned on your TV with Google Assistant.

Turn on Your TV with Google Chromecast

For those without an Android TV, you can still use Google Assistant to power up your TV.

A Google Chromecast is a device that helps you connect your Google Assistant with other devices that you can control from your Google Assistant.

With a Google Chromecast, you can turn on your TV through Google Assistant.

To connect your TV and your Chromecast, your TV must have an HDMI-CEC port or any other kind of port that supports the Chromecast. The Chromecast has to be plugged into the TV to ensure that the TV can connect with Google Assistant.

To use Chromecast, enable the CEC option. With this option activated, you can connect your Chromecast to your TV. From your Google Assistant, select a video that you want to stream on your TV. 

At this point, if your TV is off, it will cause your TV to turn on automatically.

Ensure that your Chromecast is charged at all times for easier streaming. For most TVs, when the TV is on, the Chromecast charges.

Turn on Your TV Directly from Google Assistant

The third method of turning on your TV with Google Assistant is direct. This time, you do not need your remote or a Chromecast to turn on your TV.

With Google Assistant, you can now turn on your TV with voice commands. 

With Google Assistant, you can quickly turn on your TV. First, ensure that your TV and your Google Assistant can successfully connect. Once done, it is now much simpler to turn on your TV through the control of your voice.

With your Google Assistant on and within your voice range, you can command it to switch on your TV. 

By being on the same network, you can name your TV differently from its brand. When you use Google Assistant, you can command it to turn on the TV by the name that you have saved in the local system.

Once your TV is on, you can now play Netflix or YouTube by commanding the Google Assistant to change channels or to play music on other apps that are compatible with it.

Google Assistant has made it easier for you to enjoy your TV viewing. You do not need to know where your remote is to sit down and relax, ready to stream your favorite movies and TV programs.

Once you are done enjoying your TV viewing, with a single voice command, you can shut down your TV with Google Assistant.


With Google Assistant in your house, you'll enjoy your entertainment much more effectively. Google Assistant ensures that you can control all your gadgets at home just by the sound of your voice. With Google Assistant, you can easily switch on your TV from the comfort of your couch with the control of your voice.
