Command list for Fire Tv control?

Posted

Is the a list of voice control commands? I'm using Firefox on Fire Tv to access YouTube (and other sites), and I've found saying:

"Pause" or "Stop" will pause a playing video
"Play" will resume a paused video
"Rewind" will skip back to previous video
"Fast forward" will skip to next video
"Back" will exit back to the main YouTube screen where you came in from (i.e. Recommended, Subscriptions, Search, History".
"Home" drops you out of Firefox, to the Fire TV home screen.

"Next", "Forward", "Skip" all respond with "Next is not supported" "Select" responds with "I'm not sure what you mean" "Enter" searches the Amazon video library for titles with the word "enter" in it! lol..

I know there's supposed to be a voice-controlled version of Firefox in the works, but if the browser is responding to certain Alexa commands (not just on YouTube), and not others, is there a definitive list of what is supported?

Hi

Thank you for your question.

I have contact the development team for Firefox for Fire TV and they have confirmed that whilst there is no list at the present time, we are hoping to publish one soon in support of this new feature.

When it is published, it should be found here.
