How to voice-control your TV with Android TV

By  Sigismondo Eisenhower 2019-08-08 817 0

We can control our Android TV by voice from our mobile phone, from a Google Home speaker, or from the TV's own remote if it includes the microphone button.

How to voice-control your TV with Android TV

If we control the Android TV directly from its remote control there is no need to say the name of the device. If we control it from another device, we will have to say its name or say on TV. If your TV's remote control does not have a microphone, you can use your mobile phone as a remote control with the Android TV Remote Control application.

We will control our TV using the Google Assistant, so if we do not want to touch anything will have to say Ok Google so that our mobile or speaker Google Home is activated to receive the order and send it to the TV.

Thanks to the Android TV Assistant we will be able to adjust the volume, watch videos, series, movies, listen to music, control the reproduction and much more. Here are all the voice commands you can use on your Android TV:
