YouTube TV and Google Home have worked together to give you voice control over your live TV since last October. Now, the service is starting to roll out and test a voice-powered remote feature in its mobile app. We've seen the feature ourselves, so can confirm that it's happening for some folks, at least.

First spotted by Android Police, the feature does not require an app update, but is only showing up to some users.

Voice remote will show up as a floating button in the app; you can issue voice commands like "go back to my last channel" or "Play NBC," says the site.
