Alexa Voice Control

There are threads on the internet more than two years old concerning Youview experimenting with Alexa voice control, does anyone know what came of this and if/when we can expect it to come to BT TV

Re: Alexa Voice Control

Hi, released on the Retail Boxes but not yet on the BT Boxes, in usual BT Style.

Re: Alexa Voice Control

I wouldn't get too excited. It's just search at the moment. Still have to pick up the remote for all other activities.

Re: Alexa Voice Control

From what I have read on other fourms its as said just search only the now.

My sisters new Samsung 4k smart TV that she got just under a month ago has better Alexa voice control than Alexa on the retail Youview box.

My sister has the Youview T2000 retail box but don't know if shes tried the Alexa voice on that yet.

I love my Amazon Echos and have 3 in my house.

Re: Alexa Voice Control

I have tried it and the search is ok (saves the awkward typing input) but ultimately fairly useless when you have to select what you want from the results with the remote anyway. That said this is definitely just the start with much more to come including a way of bringing back a much requested feature that is enhanced with voice control. Hopefully BT will take more interest once the additional actions are also included..

Re: Alexa Voice Control

It would be a great additional add on if it becomes available for BTTV

Re: Alexa Voice Control

Hope there will be an option to turn this feature off where off means OFF!
