Apps for streaming buried too deeply and don’t work well

I got my new Gemini this week, and it is barely different from my old Genie 2.  It is clear that this is still a satellite device with streaming as an afterthought.  I enjoy putting Pandora on my TV when I’m not watching a show and I counted 16 clicks of buttons on the remote to get to that app.  And when I use the app, it plays one song and then stops.  Do better DirecTV!

Hi @Dredding. Thank you for the feedback. We're constantly improving and bringing more features for you to enjoy. Here's more information about the Gemini technology:

To cut down the clicks, you can either launch Pandora from the "Apps 💎" button in the bottom left corner of your remote. Check it out here: or use the Google Voice Assistant.

If there's an issue with the app functionality itself, you can try to uninstall/reinstall it. Here's how: Jairo, DIRECTV Community Specialist

It started out as a streaming box for DTV streaming and then they added sat service.
