Voice option doesn't work now won't connect
So the voice option never worked a crashes and starts over every time it's never worked for me on my Nvidia shield now for some reason it will not connect I deleted it reinstalled restarted the phone vice versa every possible different way nothing so now I have to wait for a new update to see if it fixes it otherwise it's useless at this point because it won't connect and obviously the voice function doesn't work either
It would be nice if it connected again and the boys option worked otherwise the keyboard worked fine but this app will probably not be your daily driver remote because it's a little tricky in a pinch it does the job but with Nvidia shield double pressing the home button doesn't bring you to the screen where you can kill an app that's running in the background so it's not better or as good as the supplied remote
The main reason you would want this is so you can use the keyboard because obviously typing with the remote is simply awful. Well the keyboard is broken. If you go to type David you’ll get ddddaavvvvviidddd. Etc. doesn’t really matter what you type you get bunches of letters. I’ve reinstalled the app and no go. Since I’ve been using this app it saw (1) update like 2 years ago and that was that. Keyboard continues to be unusable which is a shame since that’s the only reason I need the app. And of course you can’t just call up Google and get it fixed. Might as well just open your window and yell outside, it will have the same effect. Welcome to the 21st century and your corporate overlords, there’s nobody to blame because there’s nobody you can talk to.
No, people are not manufacturing problems for reviews...
There is a very distinct problem with this app - it throws out characters that you have not actually pressed when using the keyboard function, then things get worse when you try to backspace to clean it up.
The latest update did not correct this issue (I was super hopeful that it would when I saw the update available. It is a SIGNIFICANT hindrance to using the app the way it was obviously intended: (To allow you to avoid "typing" via flying all over the screen and selecting letters with your remote/gamepad.)
Apple perfected this function on the Apple TV app years back. Come on, Google!
