Voice input and media control from app

Hi everybody,
I am little bit stuck on choosing the ONE & ONLY HA companion for Android.
Official app suits my needs OK besides 2 minor things I can not figure out:

  1. I use Ariela Pro [Ariela - Home Assistant Android Client] app also and have made many automations which depend on phone microphone sensor: push MIC on frontend and ask something in native language, HA responds. Can I find such an option in official app or implement it via configuration?
  2. Also in HA Client [About HA Client - native Android client for Home Assistant] I have a cast status button in frontend which allows me quicky see what is playing where and control it. Any way for official app?
    TIA, JR
