Samsung strengthens smart TV voice functionalities

Friday 20 November 2020 | 12:31 CET | News

Samsung Electronics said Google Assistant joined the Amazon Alexa and Bixby voice assistants available on 2020 Samsung Smart TVs. The suite of voice assistants is now available on all 2020 4K and 8K QLED TVs, Crystal UHD TVs, The Frame, The Serif, The Sero and The Terrace, and is compatible with viewers’ existing voice assistant ecosystems. 

Customers can use their preferred voice assistant to discover new content with a search by genre, director or actor. In addition to finding new TV programmes and films to watch, viewers can ask Alexa, Bixby or Google Assistant to provide the weather forecast, find out the latest game scores or play music. With Google Assistant, viewers will also have access to the Google services, including Google Search, Photos, Maps, Calendar and more. 

Customers can add another hub to any room in the house with Samsung Smart TVs, which can now be used to control the lights, set the thermostat, set an alarm or perform any other tasks under the command of a household’s existing voice assistant.
