About this app

Stop looking for the remote when your phone rings! Just say "hey Google, ask Quick Remote to pause the TV".

Quick Remote helps you control your Roku with voice commands! Play or pause the movie. Rewind or fast forward your favorite shows. Start Netflix or CBS News channel. Navigate Roku's menu by saying go left, right or select!

It can follow multiple commands at once and also control multiple Rokus! You can even ask for it to wait for your next command.

Use Shortcuts in Google Home app to create shortcuts for your favorite commands! Just say "hey Google, pause the TV" instead of "hey Google, ask Quick Remote to pause the TV and wait". Look for Shortcuts in Google Home app > Left Menu > More Settings > Shortcuts

This app works with all Google Home devices and with Google Assistant in any phone.

Quick Remote app in Google Assistant: https://goo.gl/sUkDGM

You will never touch the Roku remote again! No hub or additional hardware required!!

Quick Start:

At Google Home or Google Assistant:

• Say "Ok Google, let me talk to Quick Remote" to your Google Home or Google Assistant
• It will ask you to link your Google Home/Assistant to Quick Remote account:
-- When using Google Home or Google Home Mini, look for the Quick Remote link card to popup in the Google Home app
-- You can find Quick Remote in the Google Home app's left menu > Explore > Search for 'Quick Remote' > Link
-- You can also open this link: https://goo.gl/sUkDGM in Google Assistant app to link Quick Remote
• Follow the link to sign into Quick Remote using your Google account -- you will only be sharing your email for linking

In your phone:

• Install Quick Remote for Google Home app in your phone
• Connect your phone to the same Wi-Fi network as your Roku device
• In your phone's Wi-Fi settings set it to keep Wi-Fi ALWAYS on during sleep
• Select the Roku device you want to control in the devices menu
• Sign-in using the same Google account as your Google Home device or Google Assistant app -- your email will only be used for linking the two

IMPORTANT: Your phone's Wi-Fi needs to ALWAYS stay on during sleep for it to receive commands from Google Home and send it to your Roku. Also, if your phone has trouble connecting with your Roku then turn off battery optimization for this app in Android Settings > Battery Optimization

Back at Google Home or Google Assistant:

• Say "Ok Google, ask Quick Remote to pause the TV" -- Voila! your Roku will do as you say!
• Say "Ok Google, ask Quick Remote to go home, right, down and select" -- it will follow multiple commands at once!
• Say "Ok Google, ask Quick Remote to start Netflix and wait" -- it will start a channel and wait for your next command!
• Say "Ok Google, ask Quick Remote to switch to Family Room Roku" -- it will even control multiple Rokus!

It would be great if it actually worked consistently, if your phone goes to sleep or gets disconnected from Wi-Fi it is completely useless. I can appreciate the fact that obviously the software needs to be able to control the Roku on the local network but I think we need a Windows piece of software or winix piece of software to do the job and Android Device just isn't going to do it unless you have something dedicated for this purpose alone unfortunately was a waste of my time.

Great idea, but trying to control a Roku TV with your Google home via quick remote is more of a hassle than it is worth. Every time you want to press any button via voice prompts, it is a two step process then times out. If you want to then hit another button, you have to go through the two step voice commands process again. I could not get my Google home to play specific channels or videos on YouTube.

This app has very long google assistant commands and only works if your phone is connected to the same network as your roku device. Also, they charge you money to use it more than a little. Most importantly, now you can add your roku device in the google home app directly, so it isn't a third party service and doesn't require your phone to be there.
