Advanced sound settings for Chromecast with Google TV

Customize your sound format

To customize the sound format on your Chromecast with Google TV (HD) or Chromecast with Google TV (4K), adjust your advanced sound settings.

  1. Turn on your Chromecast and then at the top right of your TV screen, select your profile and then Settings .
  2. Select Display & Sound and then Advanced sound settings and then Surround sound format selection and then Manual.
  3. In the section "Supported formats," select the format you want to use.

Control volume with voice, phone, or smart display screen

You can set up your Chromecast Voice Remote to control the volume on your Chromecast instead of on your TV, receiver, or soundbar. If you choose this option, you can control the volume in the following ways:

  • Voice control on a speaker or smart display
  • A phone or tablet with the Google Assistant or Google Home app
  • Touchscreen control on a smart display
  • The Voice Remote volume button

Important: You might experience unexpected results because of a disparity between the Chromecast volume settings and the volume settings on your TV, receiver or soundbar. For example, if you mute your TV with the remote that came with it and then try to change the volume with your voice, your TV will stay muted.

  1. To start setup, at the top right of your TV screen, select your profile and then Settings .
  2. Select Remotes & Accessories and then Set up remote buttons and then Volume control and then Chromecast Volume.
