Philips TV Remote App - feature request / missing Android TV features
Hi, I've recently bought 55PFT6550 Android TV and I miss voice functions in it's remote control.
I thought that if TVs launcher has microphone icon option to respond for voice commands, then the remote control is able to use it, but it's not.
So, if remote control is not able to use it then, Philips TV Remote App is supposed to be able to do it, especially that official Google Android TV Remote Control app has such option, but Philips TV Remote App voice option is able to search only media to be played.
Please make it more useful, to be able to do voice web search / youtube / installed apps / everything else that Android TV is capable, like in Google's Android TV RC or custom apps (I would use them, but Google's app is unsupported on my phone and custom apps have other bugs or don't have option to use custom IP address (in my case TV is different subnet than my phone - ethernet)).
The other features that I miss are:
- using Smartphone touchscreen as touchpad for Android TV (to be able to use it like real touch screen or mouse pointer - many apps/games require it)
- using other Smartphone sensors, passing them to Android TV (like gyro/accelerometers)

the Voice Option is part of the Android TV Platfrom, designed by Google.
Even if we decide (what we did) to not support the Voice Feature, the Icon and function will be there.
BUT, the function itself is not implemented.
You cannot use Voice Function.
