  • Hey Google, tell Caavo to Play Stranger Things
  • Hey Google, tell Caavo to Play CBS
  • Hey Google, tell Caavo to Play Channel 202
  • Hey Google, tell Caavo to Power On/Off
  • Hey Google, tell Caavo to Find My Remote
  • Hey Google, tell Caavo to Watch Netflix
  • Hey Google, tell Caavo to Search for Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Hey Google, tell Caavo to Pause
  • Hey Google, tell Caavo to Play

Note: Google Home uses OAuth authentication. This means that when you install the Caavo action on Google Home, it will ask you to sign in with an email / google account. This google account will be linked with your Caavo Account for control. You do NOT need to enter a PIN (as you do with Alexa).

This type of authentication has limitations. If you use the same Caavo Account on multiple Control Centers, the Caavo action will control ALL Control Centers which are using the same Caavo account. The Caavo action does not associate with different boxes, but with a single account - so if that single account is active on multiple devices it will broadcast the command to ALL the devices using that account.
