Telus launched Telus Home Assistant, a platform that gives Optik TV customers the freedom to control their entertainment experience hands-free using voice commands, at no extra cost. Optik TV customers with a Google Assistant-enabled speaker or Smart Display simply pair to Telus Home Assistant to allow voice commands to change the channel, launch Netflix and other apps, search for their favourite shows, pause or simply turn off their digital box. Those without a Google Home device can use the same hands-free voice control ability through the free Google Assistant app for smartphones.
