Don’t use the remote control for everything! Find out what you can now do with your Smart TV using just voice commands, and discover how you can enjoy your television to the fullest. But where to start?
9 things you can do on your Smart TV with the voice assistant
Imagine this: you are sitting on your favorite sofa, with a snack and a drink in hand, you sit down and you realize that you left the remote control on another piece of furniture, so you have to get up. Now that’s not a problem!
Currently, if you have a voice assistant plugged in at home, you can connect it to your Smart TV, and ask the television to do the following:
1. Use applications
Smart televisions give you access to many applications: streaming services, downloadable programs, exclusive channels. If you want to use any of them, just say it out loud.
2. Find the content
Already know which application you want to use? Well, now, ask it to search for a specific series or movie in your streaming services, or mention the name of a specific channel on YouTube or Twitch, so that it plays within it. Just by saying it, you will see it!
3. Play and stop
Once you decide what you want to watch, ask the voice assistant to play the title. But what if you have a package to receive, it’s time for dinner, or you have to get up for some reason? Easy! Just ask him to stop.
4. Schedule on and off
This is important if you have pending or work and you don’t want to be late.
In short, you have the ability to program in advance what time you want to turn on the Smart TV (for example to tune in to a specific program or stream), and when you want to turn it off. Great for maintaining a routine!
5. Change the language
Are you learning a language or are you bilingual? Try changing the language settings of the movie you are watching and listen to the actors in their original language, or enjoy the work of voice actors from other countries.
6. Delay or procrastination
Did you miss something? Want to rewatch a funnier scene? This is also possible if you request that your content be restored or, even better, skip some minutes that you do not want to see.
7. Skip chapter/episode
In that sense, if you feel like skipping an episode you’ve already seen or one of the so-called “filler chapters”, you’re free to do so.
8. Connect other smart devices
Do not forget that smart speakers or lights, among other devices, can be adapted to the television, so that a command activates everything simultaneously. Of course, remember to coordinate these functions with your voice assistant first.
9. Adjust the volume
It will not disappear: thanks to the fact that you connect your smart television to the voice assistant, the option appears to lower or raise the volume and determine its specific value using your voice, nothing else.
Now that you know them, do you want to try all these functions on a Smart TV? Get yours and start enjoying your favorite series and movies.
