How to change which app Google Home launches TV shows

Jump to solution

I want to use my Google home to get my Roku to play a certain show from Netflix, but whenever I ask it to play, it plays the show on Hulu. I have Hulu with ads, so obviously if the show is on both services, I'd rather play it through Netflix.

I've tried "Play [show] on Netflix," but it still plays it from Hulu. Is there a way to get around this?

Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that using your voice to launch Netflix, or access and interact with Netflix content is not currently supported when using the Roku skill for Alexa.

Hi Danny. Unfortunately your response is entirely and unequivocally useless.

Your first piece of information that Roku is not supported by Alexa does not serve me any good since my issue does not concern Alexa.

Your second piece of information is flat out untrue. The support page you linked does not provide any information regarding Google Home with my Roku device. The term "Google" does not even appear on the page.

Thanks for the follow up.

I apologize for my previous post, I provided the incorrect link. As stated previously, using your voice to launch Netflix, or access and interact with Netflix content is not currently supported when using the Roku Action on Google. Other voice commands like those for adjusting volume are also not supported when using Netflix.
