If you own a Chromecast and subscribe to Disney Plus you can link the two so you have a remote-free and voice controlled experience.
Chromecast, Android TV, Chromecast with Google TV, Google Home, and select big-screen displays work great with Google Assistant. It allows you to use your voice to look up content, and start playing movies and TV shows, and control playback without a remote. Here’s how to link your Disney Plus account to Google Assistant for easy access voice control.
Link Disney Plus with Google Assistant
To get started launch the Google Home app on your iPhone or Android device. Then tap the plus (+) icon at the top-left corner of the screen.
Under the Add Services section select Videos.
Now under the Videos section find Disney+ and tap the Link button.
A message will pop up explaining what happens when you link your Disney Plus account with Google Assistant. Tap on “Link Account” to continue.
Next, a browser window opens up to the Disney Plus login screen. Sign in to your account with your email address and password and tap the “Log In & Link” button.
If you have multiple profiles set up on your account you will need to select the one that you want to link with Google Assistant.
Finally, tap the Confirm button to select the profile that you are linking with Google Assistant.
That’s all there is to it. Now your Disney Plus account is linked with Google Assistant. Now you can say things like “Hey Google, play The Mandalorian on my office TV.”
