Roku Soundbar as WiFi Speaker

I have just purchased a Roku Soundbar, which looks like a good combination of Roku and audio.

I am trying to use it as a WiFI speaker in my Google Home system I have in my home. The Roku Soundbar registers in my Google Home app, but I cannot use it to play anything to it like my other speakers.

Am I missing something here?

Thanks for the inquiry.

The Roku Smart Soundbar connects directly to your TV, letting you stream movies and TV shows with exceptional, big-picture sound.

Re: Roku Soundbar as WiFi Speaker

Hi Danny,

 

Thanks for your response. I am aware and have the soundbar working as you indicated.

My point is that the soundbar connects to Google Home nicely, but alas it does not work as a WiFi-connected speaker (unrelated to the TV).

A number of other soundbars act as a speaker, which is what I wanted but with Roku built-in.

Any plans to do this?
