A lot of the stuff we do on TV is done with our phones and tablets, but there are a few things we don’t do as much with our remote control: We use the phone to navigate around the TV.
We use our fingers to press the screen.
And we take our tablets with us.
But now, in the era of virtual reality and augmented reality, we can use our phones as a remote control.
First, you need a remote.
Here at the National Science Foundation, we’ve got some pretty nice ones, including the Google Chromecast.
But you’re going to need a big, comfortable one, which means you’ll need to have a really big TV, or a big screen that’s big enough for your whole head.
If you have a larger TV, like a 4K Ultra HD TV, you’ll be able to fit the phone into that.
But if you don’t have a large TV, then you’ll want to get a big TV.
So, if you have one of these, you can probably find one for $50, which is a good deal.
But I’d say if you’re looking for a good one, the Amazon Fire TV Stick is probably the best one.
You’ll get the Chromecast, the remote, the HDMI port, and a Wi-Fi card.
If that’s not enough, you get the app that will let you control the Chromecasts, and the app will let the phone control the TV, too.
So you’ll also want a USB-C cable, which plugs into your TV’s HDMI port.
And if you want to use the Google Play Movies app, you want it on the phone.
The Chromecast comes with an Alexa app that lets you use the app to control the phone as well as the Chromes TV.
For now, the phone app only lets you control your phone as a controller.
But soon, you should be able control your Chromecast from the phone, too, and that’s going to be really cool.
So let’s start with that Alexa app.
Open up the Google Voice app.
And in the top left corner, tap the “Add a Remote” button.
Here, you just enter a name for your Chromecast, like “Alexa, control the television.”
Now, we need to specify what you want the remote to do.
Say you want “Alexas voice command,” and then you can pick an image to play.
Or you can go ahead and specify the content, like show me all the shows I watch.
Now, it’s really important to select what you’re trying to control.
We don’t want to let the app do everything, so we want to pick the things we want Alexa to do first.
So when we want the phone and TV to be controlled by Alexa, we want them to be the only two things that are controlling our Chromecasters.
And then we can set the other two things, like the TV’s volume, to play automatically when we call Alexa.
Let’s start by opening the Google Assistant app.
Then, in our Alexa voice search, just type in “Alexamod, play TV.”
And you’ll see a list of all the available remote controls.
And you can even set the remote for both the phone or the TV if you like.
And now, let’s say we want all the TV to control everything, including music.
That’s easy: Just say “Alexs voice command, play music.”
Now you can tell Alexa to turn on the TV by saying, “Alex, turn on my TV.”
Or you could say, “Play music on my Chromecast.”
If you want more control, you could also say, for example, “I want the TV and Chromecast to turn off the phone.”
Or even say, instead of “Alexis voice command to turn the TV off,” say, Alexa, turn off my TV.
Now that we have all the controls in place, we’re ready to get to the real fun.
So now that we’ve gotten the phone set up, let us try to control all the Chromedetems.
Just say, voice command “Alex Alexa, change volume.”
You can see that Alexa does just that.
The music controls are also done with voice commands.
Say, voice commands “Alexes voice command play music on TV.”
That will play all the music you’re listening to.
Now you could ask Alexa to change the volume, but that’s pretty complicated.
So instead, we should say, play more music.
And that’s where the app comes in.
You can add the music controls to your Alexa app, too!
So we have a list, and it looks like this: “Alex.
And in that list, we have two buttons, one for the phone that lets us control the screen, and one for “Alex” to control
