Suggestions With this latest version, it is now possible to utilise the Android Leanback suggestions for Android TV. You can now use the Google voice search to search through your Kodi library straight from the Android screen. Just hit the voice search button and speak whatever you want to search for and it will try to match and show you the results.  You’ll get suggested content such as unwatched random Movies, and episodes to keep binge watching them until the end. For your music fans, it will show you random records from the library to maintain your listening as varied as you can.

Voice to text No longer as from now on you can use voice to text typing using the same button on your remote as for the Voice search. To make use of this feature simply do the same as you normally do but instead of typing with the keyboard use the microphone button on the remote and speak. At times this will, of course, be hit and miss and you need to correct it at times. In general, though it works pretty well.
