Telstra TV and google Home

Now Roku has enabled control via Google Home, I was wondering when the Telstra TV will accept Google home as control agent?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

This was launched on 30/10, but I haven't seen an article about this yet. I will see about getting an article created with set-up instructions.

Re: Telstra TV and google Home

There’s instructions at the very bottom of the screen on the Telstra Tv home page. Scroll down past Telstra Tv recommends, My Apps, On Live Tv Now, etc. It’s called Voice Linking. Or just go to your Google Home app and add it. I have successfully added my tv however when I ask it to play something it thinks for quite a while then says it’s about to play it, then says something went wrong try again later. About the only thing I can control at the moment is if I say pause the tv or play. Am looking forward to it working fully, as it’s a great feature to have.

Re: Telstra TV and google Home

yes same here. Took quite a few attempts to link it to Home but it has done it. I can get google home to turn it on but thats it. Dont know if you can add commands like in the logitech harmony hub that you write a command then write the steps involved to execute the request. Hope to play with it a bit more but until Telstra give a short description of what we can expect it to do doesnt seem worthwhile.

Hi Mattiebes,

I have two Telstra TV2 and both are Model 4700-Yl with software versions 8.1.6 . build 4093-43.The other one does not have the option to link at the bottom of the screen. This one is connected by ethernet via a POE unit but I have put it on wi-fi and the option still does not appear. This one is also connected to an older Tv in the bedroom. Cannot understand why one has the option to link and the other not , unless the unit requires a particular connection with the Tv which the older unit doesn't have????.

Hi thepointis55

 

It looks like there can only be one Telstra TV device assigned currently. It has been noted here http://tel.st/s5x72

Re: Telstra TV and google Home

Just did update to latest Firmware on TTV - Telstra TV does not show the option for "Voice Linking"  TTV is a wired connection, not wi-fi - Is this the issue?  If not, how do I remedy?

Probably should have directed this to you in the first place -

Hi Alistair,

That could be correct but the TV that does not show the linking ability was the 1st one I tried. I was just playing around with the TV/Telstra TV in the kitchen one and noticed that I could link with that unit.
