I believe it is Gen 2.
bought off Amazon in feb 2022, just now unboxing it and setting it up. Connected to the tv and it says to set up with Google Home. In Google home it says Chromecast(needs activation) with a triangle with ! in the middle.
How do I activate it??
Hi @George27 -
This is what I've done when I had a similar issue when the Chromecast wouldn't automatically connect. At the top left of the Google Home app home screen, tap Add, Set up device then New device.
Hope this helps, keep me posted!
Apparently, there is a problem with Pixel phones and Chromcast. I was able to get my old phone working well enough to activate the Chromecast. See pic of where the link took me.
Thank you for your assistance!
I appreciate your help here, MrVacca.
