Netflix, Spotify and Plex with Google Chromecast/Mini


#1

Hi there,

Since my smart tv is not very fast and the LG Homey app is not working on my tv (the IR one works, though), I’m looking for other ways to play media apps such as Netflix, Spotify and Plex from Homey flows.

In a Google Home mini video, someone asked Google to play show X on Netflix, and the tv booted and played the show (probably on Chromcast).
Does anyone have any experience with these devices and Homey? Would it be able to program a flow to dim lights and boot my Onkyo amp the same way, while playing something on Chromecast? And would this work with Plex (and Spotify) as well?

For the record, I don’t own any Google devices yet! I just can’t find relevant user experiences with either or both devices in this forum that actually work.

Cheers, and Merry Christmas!
