Voice search conflict with Roku and Spotify

Has anybody else had problems using a Roku remote to do voice searching on Spotify? I recently added a Roku Ultra to my system. But when I try to do a voice search in Spotify, Roku takes over and does not allow me to use the voice search remote. Instead, I am forced to use a virtual keypad to type in the search, which is a real pain. Is there any way to get the voice search to be Spotify and not Roku?

Re: Voice search conflict with Roku and Spotify

Welcome to the Roku Community, @cliff_solomon!

Thank you for letting us know about the issue you've encountered in your Roku remote's voice command being unable to work. We'd be happy to provide further information about this. 

Please be informed that the Roku remote's voice command feature works for Roku settings and only certain apps allow this to work inside their system. In this case, I believe that this feature is not allowed inside the Spotify app.

I hope you find this information helpful.

Best regards,
