It is already available on Sony and TCL branded Google TVs, and it’s coming to Chromecast streaming devices as well. The feature also comes with full integration of the Google Assistant.
The user profiles on Google TV allow multiple users to have personalized recommendations and access content. Users can add as many subscription services as they want and switch between them by holding down the home button. It’s also easy to switch accounts by clicking on the profile splash screen in the notification tray. Once set up, users can access their watchlist and mass “Continue watching” rows.

Dolby Atmos support
Google has announced that the latest version of its streaming devices will support Dolby Atmos. However, it’s worth noting that the Chromecast does not decode this spatial audio format, and it depends on the sound bar or A/V receiver that is capable of decoding it. That’s good news for Netflix users, who can now watch movies in Atmos audio quality.
The Chromecast with Google TV is a hit among streaming consumers, but it had some major limitations when it first launched. Now, with the latest update, Google has fixed many of these issues and added new features. For example, the Chromecast can now play Dolby Atmos content from Netflix and Amazon Prime. The only exceptions are Disney+, which currently only supports 5.1 channels. It’s also important to note that not all streaming services support Dolby Atmos, so you’ll want to check with the service before you purchase the Chromecast.
In addition to this latest feature, the new model supports 1080p HDR, and supports AV1 codec, an open-source video format. The first generation Chromecast with Google TV lacks this feature, but this new version does support the AV1 codec. However, Dolby Atmos support will be available for future versions.
Another notable addition is the new remote control that comes with the Chromecast with Google TV. It replaces the original Chromecast and plugs into a TV’s HDMI port. The new version also supports HDR10+, as well as 4K and Dolby Vision HDR. The Chromecast with Google TV also comes with over 6,500 Android TV apps.
The new version of Google TV runs on the new device, which has been rebranded to Android TV. It has an improved interface and quick performance. But it lacks Dolby Atmos support and isn’t suitable for home theater enthusiasts. The Chromecast with Google TV HD is best for users who want to add some smarts to an old television. It’s a great choice for those with a sub-4K TV and is an excellent option for renting an apartment.
Chromecast with Google TV makes it easy to watch entertainment in up to 4K HDR. It also offers personal recommendations and eliminates jumping between apps. Chromecast with Google TV is available on iOS and Android, so you don’t need to worry about missing out on the latest movies or TV shows.

If you want, you can reassign the Netflix button to open YouTube TV instead. The Chromecast remote with Google TV can also be controlled via the volume buttons on your phone. Unlike the old-school remotes, this one allows you to play and pause movies and TV shows using your voice alone or in pairs.
A Google Chromecast remote comes with a number of features, including a Bluetooth microphone that works with Google Assistant. It also features a D-pad, which lets you enter text on the TV.

Setting up Guest Mode on your Chromecast Google TV is easy and can be very useful if you want to share videos and music with friends and family. You just need to make sure that your personal device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the Chromecast and is using the Guest mode. You’ll want to make sure that you have the app installed on your personal device.
The Guest mode is very handy if you’re having a meeting with someone from another company or simply need a way to connect to their devices. It’s also useful if you want to let a guest stream media from their phone. However, it’s not possible to use this mode with Spotify.
Guest mode works by setting up a 4-digit PIN for each guest to enter. This PIN is automatically transferred via short audio tones. You can also manually enter a PIN if you’d like your guests to be able to connect to your TV. Initially, the feature was only available on Chromecast, but it eventually made its way to other Google products such as Nest and Home. However, it was not available on other devices, such as Android TV or third-party speakers.
Using Guest mode on your Chromecast is simple and easy. If you don’t have a mobile device, you can use the smartphone hotspot feature to connect to a guest network. However, you should be aware that if you’re using a guest network, it will need a dedicated source of internet.
You can also use the Google Photos app to change the background of the TV to display your favorite images. Just make sure that the two devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network in order to be able to share content. Afterwards, you can tap on the Cast button to send the photos to your TV.
If you have an older Chromecast, you can connect it to a Google smart home device to use Google Assistant. Using the Google Assistant, you can search for information by voice and ask Google to open a compatible app. If you don’t have a smart home device, you can use the older Chromecast to watch Netflix or watch other compatible services. These services include Disney+, Hulu, HBO Max, and YouTube TV.
