Google Assistant is a virtual voice assistant, available for both Android & iOS, allowing you to control your phone using voice commands. In this demonstration, we’re setting up Google Assistant for Android. For Google Assistant to work with your Cyrus ONE Cast, your ONE Cast must be set-up with Google Home, follow the link below to learn more about this process.
To start, install and set-up the Google Assistant App and make sure that the Cast LED is showing green.
Google Home Setup
Before setting up with Google Assistant, make sure that music services are set to your prefered music streaming app inside the Google Home app. Go to manage services and select “Music and Audio“.
Select your music streaming app from the music services shown, scroll down to discover other music streaming apps that can be connected directly through Google Home.
A full list of music streaming apps supported by Casting can be found by clicking the button below.Supported Streaming Apps
Once this is done, you can use voice commands to select specific playlists, albums, tracks, radio stations, anything you’d like to listen to. You just use the same commands as you would with a regular smart speaker but tell Google to play on your Cyrus ONE cast, by using the name you have chosen for it.

As the Phone has Google Home installed, asking for a specific genre of music such as Jazz to be played on your speaker will use a playlist from the music streaming service set-up in Google Home automatically, you can play custom playlists, artists and singles.
For example, “Play Oh Darling, by the Beatles on Kitchen Speaker”
It’s that simple
