Voice Search button on Shield - Acting as selector

I noticed this last night. I know we don’t have voice search in the Android TV app but I would have at least expected the voice search button on the shield remote to take me to the manually entry search. Instead, it behaved the same as the center selector on the d-pad.

Is this intentional? Bug? Should this button be taking me to the search interface?

@Andrroid - Unfortunately doing any coding with the voice search button would require us diving in to to the voice search integration which is a big job. As of right now it defaults to the main button which is select.

I thought the Android team was already diving into the voice search integration along with recommendations integration. Is this not the case?

We will be working on that, just not yet. Working on some things in preparation for that piece… Plus, what they’re working on is in a different code base than this.
