You'll also need a chromecast audio to group your mini(s) with your soundsystem to play audio from it. The regular chromecast only does video and will not sync the sound with the google homes. It's kind of bullshit because it obviously can but is a way for google to get you to purchase yet another thing to plug in and spend money on...

There is some confusing information here.

Google Home mini can talk to a "Chromecast" or a "Chromecast Audio".

A "Chromecast," which is an HDMI dongle, connects to a TV. You can tell the Google Home mini to play Spotify, Youtube, Google Play music, Pandora, etc to your "Chromecast," and audio will also be included, played from your TV or any sound system connected to your TV (such as a soundbar).

You can also tell the Google Home mini to play music to a "Chromecast audio", for audio only features, such as Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, etc. In addition (but cannot confirm), you may be able to output all audio from the Google Home mini to a "Chromecast Audio," but I'm not sure about this.

The Google Home mini can also be used as a Bluetooth speaker for phones and devices to stream directly to it. It can also be used as a "cast" speaker, for apps that support google cast to be streamed to it (the google home speaker sucks, though, so not sure why anyone would want to do this).

The Google Home mini CANNOT play music to a Bluetooth speaker via Bluetooth (e.g. if you have a UE Boom, the Google Home mini cannot talk to the UE Boom via BT... only via Chromecast audio if you attach it to the boom). Amazon Echo CAN do this. We hope the Google Home mini will be updated one day to allow this feature.

OP, can you stream from Google mini to TV? I have the Samsung KU6300 that was on sale several times on this site. TIA!

Considering Chromcast, but I want to believe, as you, that I don't need it.

Yes you can stream, you just have to link your Netflix account within the Google Home app.

With a simple voice command, Netflixwill start streaming to your TV withChromecast. ... Google Play Music, Spotify, and Netflix are among thestreaming services that can be initiated with a Google Home voice command..Jun 14, 2017

No, but try sinking the Google Home to your sound system to stream some tunes. Good luck.
