Google’s Chromecast is a really simple method for streaming videos directly on TV. Setting it up involves plugging it into the HDMI port while it is powered by the USB cable that comes with it. Chromecast enables you to access content from a wide range of streaming services such as Netflix, YouTube, Hulu and Amazon, allowing users to drop content from their Chrome browsers directly to their TV.
Setting up Netflix on Chromecast:
Setting up Netflix on Chromecast is relatively easy and happens to be a simple process. You need to have your TV turned on and have the right input setting for the port in which Chromecast is plugged whether it is HDMI1 or HDMI2. However, the device you want to cast from must be connected to the same network that Chromecast has been connected to.
Once Netflix connects to Chromecast successfully, the cast icon becomes blue indicating an active connection. After this, you can use your computer or mobile as a remote for watching Netflix on TV.
Controlling Chromecast with Voice:
Google Assistant – A system which is quite similar to Apple’s Siri and iOS Assistant, can be used to give vocal commands to Netflix, which are then routed to Chromecast. If you want to feel at home with ease, you can sync your Google Home to operate with voice commands for instance, “Google, please play the next episode of Stranger things”. Other services that function well with Google Home include CWTV, CBS All Access, Viki and Starz, along with Google’s own YouTube TV.
However, you need to connect your Chromecast and phone to the same network in order to make it work and to begin casting music or videos on your TV, with voice command.

Chromecast hosts a long range of free channels that won’t charge you anything. Here is a list of the app channels available for free on Chromecast:
