Integrating voice search

We have seen few apps on Nexus Player or Apple TV where the user can use the microphone/search button on remote to perform a search operation within a channel. Ex. I can use the voice search to search within play store app in Android. Is it possible to do the same on Roku?

Re: Integrating voice search

This feature does not exist on our platform. It is a great wishlist item.

Thanks Joel. That clears my doubt.

Re: Integrating voice search -- Suggest as a ROKU/APP improvement.

1) I believe that if I use an IOS or ANDROID app I can use it as a VOICE search within the app, I think I point to the channel's search and then use the microphone of the Smartphone/Tablet. I guess the APP does the Voice to text recognition.

2) I STRONGLY suggest that the voice remote of ROKU, allow this. When I am in the channel's search, allow me to Push/Hold the "Microphone" button, and then dictate what I want the APP to search for and have ROKU do the Voice to text recognition.

p.s. What do we do to see wishlist items and vote for them?
