I have a user in my family that can't use hands. To watch TV, we currently have a Harmony Hub voice connection with Google Home.
Google is making some changes to harmony hub that really makes me question why I just don't switch the user to HomeKit and Apple TV. We've just had fewer syncing issues.
The issue remains that it would be nice if there was a way to have it so Channels could understand, "Hey Siri, go to channel 1234". Right now, as far as I know, to do that in Channels you have to make a shortcut. Also, the shortcuts aren't smart enough to have "1234" be some kind of parameter. Each individual channel would have to be programmed. So it's a little difficult. (Do-able, but difficult).
Has there been any progress on voice-related UI? Basically, I want the user to be able to do everything--increase volume, change channel, turn TV on/off, etc. with just voice. Id prefer to not have to create shortcuts for each individual action.
