Connect Chromecast TV with Google Nests Mini for Stereo Pair

Community Member

Hello everyone,

I have connected a Chromecast with Google TV on my TV and I have created a device team including the Chromecast with Google TV and two Google Nest Mini speakers.

When I play YouTube, Spotify etc. from the Chromecast menu, the sound is produced by the TVs speakers, even if I choose the device team mentioned above as the sound reproduction source. Is it possible to play videos on the TV and play the sound from the Nest Minis or I am trying something that is not supported yet?

Thank you in advance.

The issue I usually have with this is that the video and the audio are not in sync. I was hoping they would fix this so that I can make a surround sound with the Google speakers.

Thanks for your reply. How do you make the sound to be reproduced from the connected nest minis?

Hey folks,
It looks like we haven't heard back from the OP so I'm going to go ahead and lock the thread. If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to create a new thread.

Have a great day,

Audio Groups only work for music-only services (like Spotify and YouTube Music).  They do not work for video.

Chromecast with Google TV does have a work-around (partially).  It can push sound to ONE Bluetooth device at a time (so, only one of your Minis).

You have to put your Mini into Bluetooth Mode:

Then, pair that Mini with your Chromecast with Google TV:
