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.
