Can you Voice search in Youtube app?

I purchased the Roku Ultra but I am disappointed in that it seems I cannot search by voice in the YouTube app. I tried a few times but always get a can't do this response. I had called Roku support  before purchasing it and was told I would be able to. I watch a lot of YouTube videos so being able to search YouTube by voice is important to me.

Was I misinformed or am I doing something wrong?

If you use the mobile app, you can use voice search for anything, via the voice keyboard built into Android or iPhone..
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Voice Search in YouTube is broken for me in the 8.0.0 build 4184 firmware. I can't use it to search only the Roku channel that I have open.

Right now, Voice Search only returns spam from Roku partner channels that I don't have installed and don't want to use.
