There isn't a way to do this right now. You might be able to get it to play your entire playlist by name, but not an individual song from your playlist. Google Home does the same thing with Google Play Music -- you can't ask for a specific song you have uploaded or in one of your playlist.

To the ISP router, there are only two clients, Router You and Router Brother. Each of the You and Brother routers are configured as normal for a router. They have ...

This will entirely depend on your monitor. If it supports HDMI CEC then the Chromecast will be able to change the input source to the HDMI when it starts to play something, but you won't be able to switch back to the Mac input via Google Assistant.

You will need to pair the Smart Speaker with the TV in some way for this to work. Modern TV's support Bluetooth headphones/sound bars.
