Set up your Gemini device over Wi-Fi

Learn how to set up your Gemini device on your home Wi-Fi network.


Connect your Gemini device (Wireless)

Once you have your Gemini device, power supply, HDMI cable, and remote out of the box:


  1. If this is a replacement device, disconnect your current device, HDMI cord and power supply and set aside – including the remote.
  2. Plug the HDMI cable into your device and the other end into your TV.
  3. Plug the power supply into the new device. Plug the other end into an outlet.
  4. Power on your TV. You may need to switch your TV source input to match the HDMI port you plugged the Gemini device into.
  5. Remove the battery slip from the back of the remote control.
  6. Follow the on-screen prompts. This includes the following:
    1. Pair your remote and device. Point the remote at the device and press the FAST FORWARD and REWIND buttons for 2-3 seconds at the same time. When paired, a confirmation screen displays.
    2. Select your Wireless network and enter the password. Once connected, your device checks for updates and may automatically restart. (This may take a few moments)
    3. Review and accept Terms & Conditions.
    4. Select or enter the room location for this device.
    5. Enter your Google ID and password, if you have one. Learn more about Google Assistant

Use voice control on your remote

Google Assistant makes it easier than ever to watch what you want, when you want. Just press and release the MIC/voice button on your remote and wait for solid blue lights. Then, say what you want to do:

  • Go to a channel or show - say “Tune to TNT”
  • Turn closed captions on or off - say “Turn on closed captions”
  • Watch something on Netflix – say “Open Netflix”
  • Search for a movie – Say “Search action movies”
