Go to apps
Harmony Express allows you to go to streaming apps, such as Netflix or YouTube, using your voice. You can say "Go to Netflix app” or "Go to HBO Go app”. Harmony Express creates specific voice commands for each of your apps.
Go to channels
Channels must be called by their specific name or channel number for Harmony Express to find them. If any of the default channel numbers Harmony sets for you are wrong, for example if ESPN is on 302 but Harmony Express goes to 308, you can update your default channels to fix them.
Associating Harmony Express to an Alexa smart home group allows you to set commands such as "dim the lights" to a single room, rather than dimming all the lights in your house. You can still say "dim the kitchen lights" or "dim all the lights", but primary control will be more focused towards its assigned smart home group.
You can access the voice coach by pressing the OK button and saying “Start Harmony Voice Coach”. When setting up your Harmony express, you will receive an email with example voice commands for your devices. You can also find voice commands used for your devices by launching the Harmony Express app and tapping What to say.
Harmony Voice Help
Did one of your devices not power on or switch to the correct input? You can say, "Start Harmony Help" and you will be asked a series of questions to help reconfigure your setup.
