Siri search integration

It would be nice if the infuse library would be searched whenever you do a Siri voice search. So the results of the infuse library would show up along Netflix, iTunes, and other apps. Is that possible?

Apple is currently allowing apps to access Siri on a case by case basis, and so far they’ve only been accepting content providers (Netflix, Hulu, etc…).

We’re hopefully a more universal integration option will be available in the future.

Hi James, can infuse 5 pro access voice search on Apple TV4 please

You can use Siri to dictate the search field

Since not too many options are available in Poland, such search capabilities of Infuse would be great.

Just a thought, but shouldn’t we start something similar to 24 fps movement?

And start sending Apple some mass feedback about searching through Infuse as well?

Are there any news on this?

James’ comment still stands. Apple only adding apps. Still not a public API that anyone can use.

Is it not possible currently?

It would be awesome if we could leverage Siri to not only launch Infuse but also to play content from our libraries. Sometimes, we need a faster way to get to our content (i.e. a screaming child who needs an immediate distraction). Having the ability to say, “Hey Siri, Play Peppa Pig” and suddenly have things just work would be great. Thanks!

Sorry to revive an old thread but whilst Universal Search access isn’t available, can we make the current speech dictation feature more prominent? To search with my voice right now, I have to scroll up to the top, target a button, then press search. It’d be so much better to swipe, or something, at any time within the app to bring up voice search. Just some thoughts!

After the latest WWDC17 keynote Apple has showed the latest news about their next iOS version.

I’ve read that Siri API will be released, is this a new way to control Infuse with Siri? like the apple tv at this moment? asking for things like that “play a drama movie”

The Siri API will only be opened up to a selection of categories.

19 posts were split to a new topic: Siri playback controls (tvOS)

Quietly announced today, Apple is about to release support for Airplay 2 Video, allowing Siri to play content on the desired Apple TV and Airplay 2 TVs eg. Play Game of Thrones to my living Room TV.

As with other such services, I imagine this will be heavily restricted to first party services. Here is a suggestion for Infuse integration and hope it sees the light of day at some stage.

Usually (Netflix, etc) I can turn off subtitles by holding the Siri button and saying “turn off subtitles” or temporarily activate subtitles by saying “what did they just say?”

But this doesn’t work with Infuse?

As somebody with poor hearing I often toggle subtitles and to have to do it through a multi-level menu requiring multiple inputs is cumbersome and annoying.

Any help appreciated.

+1 for Siri Controls

Ability to ask Siri to select Audio track, select Subtitles, ask “What did he say?” like in other apps to skip 15 seconds back and turn on subtitles and turn them off after said 15 seconds.

Also, would be great if we get a list of actors in every movie in a horizontal list of circular pictures like in Plex and iTunes Store.

@NC_Bullseye can you move to suggestions category? Would still like to be able to “What did he just say?”. I would use this all the time.

Thanks for the catch, and done. Added a +1 for me too since old ears could always use a helping hand. :wink:

I would like use Siri to find and watch Movies/Tv Show. Now If I search a movie on my ATV, ATV found only in his own library

Hey Siri, I would like watch Vikings… Directly on my home screen… Wao it will be amazing
