Roku not working with Google Home

Jump to solution

I am in the United States, I have connected my roku to Google home and when I ask Google to play something on Netflix it tells me to use your remote to search. How do I fix this

@Dell32  Thanks for the question. Using your voice to launch Netflix, or access and interact with Netflix content is not currently supported when using the Roku skill for Google Assistant. Other voice commands like those for adjusting volume are also not supported when using Netflix.

Thanks,

Tanner

Use the remote to Search for it.

Google Home states Roku is unavailable

Jump to solution

I just spent 45 minutes on Google Home support attempting to determine why my Express+ is not available to Google Home when provided a voice command.  I just installed my Roku last night and Google Home integration was working. I woke this morning to it no longer working.  I have reset the Roku, my internet, my home device and nothing has corrected the issue.  Any help would be appreciated as Google was unable to determine the problem.  Thank you

Similar issue, model 3930X is not reachable even though the google app and the roku account suggest they are successfully linked.

Have preformed re-sets and permissions verifications.

I’m having the same issue. Even when I attempt to provide commands to my Roku via the Google Home app, I get a “something is wrong” message.

I've been having this problem with my Roku Streaming Stick since March-ish. One day everything worked perfectly for launching Hulu & YouTube, and the next my Google Home Mini tells me "something went wrong and I'm unable to control your home device". Both connected to the same wifi, tried restarting, disconnecting/reconnecting with no luck. Today I decided to try again, and Google told me the Roku was unavailable, despite the fact it was on the home screen doing nothing. Any fixes yet?
