How to set up 2 Chromecast with Google TV on 2 TVs

Community Member

I have the first Chromecast with Google TV connected to the basement TV.  I recently bought a second Chromecast with Google TV to attach to my brother's room's TV.  How would I go about setting it up so that both TVs can use it to watch streaming movies and shows from installed free apps at the same time?  That is, each person watches what they want no matter which TV they are using at the same time.  Do you just add the other person onto both Chromecast with Google TV with their own profile so that what they watch won't interfere with what I'm watching?  Does the added person need to have their own Google email to be added on?  Or can you just set up the 2nd Chromecast with Google TV under the other person's name and leave the original Chromecast with Google TV under my own name so that each Chromecast is independent from each other (if this, can it be done under the same Google Home account, or does it have to be a different Google Home account to stay independent)?

Hello Dex2c,


Thanks for reaching out. Once the device is already set up under your Google Account, you can add the other person's account on both Chromecast with Google TV devices. Both of you will be able to enjoy watching your favorite shows and movies without interfering with each other. You will only need to switch the accounts that are signed in on the Chromecast with Google TV device whenever you want to stream a movie or show.


Check out the steps below to see how you can create additional profiles on Google TV:


  1. In the top right of the Google TV home screen, scroll to your profile or initial.
  2. Choose the profile name, then select + Add account > Add an account.
  3. Sign in to the Google account to be added.
  4. Follow the prompts to complete the setup.
  5. Select the streaming services they'll use.


To switch to a different profile, do the following:


  1. In the top right of the Google TV home screen, select the account profile or initial.
  2. In the section “Choose an account,” select the desired profile to switch to.


I hope that answered your concern.
