I've put together a solution that allow you to control Kodi with your Google Home / Google Assistant.
Eventually it allows you to perform these actions with voice commands:

Play a movie:
"Hey Google, kodi play movie [movie name]" --> will search for the given movie name and play it.

Play the next unwatched episode:
"Hey Google, kodi play tv show [tv show name]" --> will search for the given tv show and play the next unwatched episode.

Play a specific episode: new
"Hey Google, kodi play [tv show name] season 2 episode 5" --> will search for the given tv show and play episode 5 on season 2.

Pause / Resume kodi:
"Hey Google, pause kodi"

Stop kodi:
"Hey Google, stop kodi"

Setup instructions can be found here: https://github.com/OmerTu/GoogleHomeKodi


Hope it'd be helpful,
Omer

This works fantastically well - and I have absolutely ZERO experience with coding, Linux, Github or Glitch, i just followed the "recipe" and it worked.

Do you have any idea if you will expand functionality on this - maybe volume control, support for music? (or even support for Shoutcast radio etc?

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this!

Sorry, I don't think I'll add any of these anytime soon. If someone else want, they could add this to this project.

I did, however, added support to play a specific episode (e.g. "Hey Google, kodi play [tv show name] season 3 episode 1")
