Configure Chromecast with Google TV easily via the Google Home app. If you already have Nest or Google products, the Home app will likely already be a part of your everyday life and it will be easier for you to set up your new device. The interface is nice, but very busy, as it combines content from all the services it subscribes to while adding rental content very similar to Apple Tv +. This algorithmic approach is a little confusing at first, but it also allows you to find some hidden gems in the meander of content provider catalogs. On the other hand, I had a hard time finding Quebec apps like Bell Fibe or Tou.Tv via the app’s search tool. Strangely, they were missing from the default Google TV catalog, but they were in the Play Store through voice-activated search. Moreover, the Google Assistant is still functional, and the answers are displayed very quickly on the TV. Like all other devices in the Chromecast range, it is possible to stream content to the TV from an external source such as a smartphone, tablet or computer. This kind of functionality is also absent from Fire Stick, as you will have to purchase a third-party app to perform this task.
