Google Assistant Command to Switch CWGTV to Ambient Mode?

I had a Chromecast Ultra and a custom routine that turned on my Chromecast (which turned on my TV) every morning, and the Ultra always defaulted into Ambient/ Screensaver mode displaying my photos. Recently updated to Chromecast with Google TV and everything turns on but this device defaults to the Google TV interface until the 5 or so minute timeout. Is there a command that I can add to my routine to tell it to change to Ambient mode right when it turns on? I know I can manually do with my remote but would rather have this as a routine. All the options I have tried thus far (ex. Turn on Ambient mode on TV) just generate Search Results. Thanks for any tips!

Hey there,

I apologize about the late response, thank you for being patient! Were you able to figure out that Ambient Mode command? I personally tried to test it on my own custom routine, however I could not get the assistant to enable Ambient Mode. If you were able to, please share! If not, I'd recommend submitting feedback via Google Home so that Google could look at adding that in the future.


I look forward to your response, and if you have any other questions or concerns for me, please let me know!

Best regards,
Jeran
