That's not how Chromecast works. You don't "open" any apps. You send applets to it with content. Say, "OK google, play stranger things on TV". If it's something not exclusive to Netflix say, "OK google, play family guy, on Netflix, on TV"

Hope that helps.

If you turn on CEC control on your TV then, with the TV off, you should be able to say "Ok Google" Play Stranger Things on TV and the Chromecast should trigger your TV to power on to that input. I do not have a Chromecast, I have a Vizio P with builtin Chromecast. But I have read in other forums of people accomplishing what I just explained :)

Edit: Just wanted to note, this will only work if your TV's USB ports stay powered on while the TV is off. If they do not then you will need to have the Chromecast's power usb connected to a wall outlet.

Does this work tho? Chromecast ALWAYS has a signal. It plays a slideshow when not showing content.
