Full list of Google Assistant controls for Roku

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...

It's really limited at this point. Hopefully, it'll get a little more power.

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.

Hmm, odd.  It worked yesterday.  I'll ping the social team.

It's working again. Make sure your setting is to US. If I move my setting to, say, UK, that support link doesn't work.

That FAQ only shows in the US.

The feature is not supported in the UK.
