I have confirmed I can use Google Assistant to turn on and off my Roku (and have it also turn on and off my TV). I don't use the Roku channel. So what else can I use Google Assistant to do with a Roku 3 and without using the Roku Channel? Can't seem to get it to control the Plex Channel, the Netflix Channel, the Amazon Prime channel...
Thank you for this. I was under the impression that I'd need to wait until 9.0 to get this functionality. And, like others said, it's limited, but it will allow me to use Google Home/Assistant to perform some controls. Would be nice if I could add more than one Roku, as I have a Google Hub in the living room where the Ultra is located, and a Google Home Mini in the bedroom where the Stick is located. Still, it's a nice feature and more than we previously had.
