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

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!

Crashes constantly

I keep buying google products, but they continue to disappoint in hardware and software. This is the last straw. Downloaded this app as a workaround to a Google Nexus remote that wasn’t working very well (would only work half of the time you pressed buttons). Well, this app crashes every time you try to use the voice feature and most of the time when you try to use the keyboard feature. I see here that someone posted the same problem about 6 months before my review, so it’s clear that Google isn’t working on this app very much. Google Nexus was discontinued and this app is probably dead too. Goodbye google products.
