'Okay google, play x on netflix' and the google tv menu shows up

Community Member


I have a Nest Mini + Chromecast 4 with Google TV configuration (and a Samsung Series 7 with HDMI CEC turned on).

When I say 'Okay google, play Breaking Bad on Netflix' with my TV off, the TV turns on but it only takes me to the Google TV home screen (although I hear 'Got it, here's breaking bad on netflix' from my Nest as if the command had been completed successfully). If I repeat the same command afterwards, it will take me to Breaking Bad on netflix.

Is there any particular reason that my Nest Mini is not taking me to Breaking Bad on Netflix directly? The obvious workaround would be to 'Okay google, turn on my tv' + 'Okay google, play breaking bad on netflix' but it'd be good to do it with the latter command only.

Thank you very much!
