Samsung 2019 TVs lineup will support Voice control through Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. The company has recently announced that users will now be able to control its upcoming QLED sets with either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. But there is one limitation that you have to provide the Assitant device to be it on the Echo, Google Home, or other smart speakers.
Like you need your own Amazon Echo or Google Home device to operate that Voice control. Samsung TV will understand the commands and take commands from Alexa or Assistant, but the onlybuilt-invoice helper will also continue to be Bixby. Too, both Alexa and Assistant can control TV volume, turn your TV on or off, switch inputs, or launch select apps.
Bixby, on the other hand, has more advanced and enhanced qualities as it is present in Samsung’s Tizen TV software. You would be able to speak with Bixby through Samsung TV remote control but it won’t work with others. Means the Voice assistant used by the system will still the Bixby and remote control voice commands will be handled through Samsung’s Assistant service.
On the brighter side, Samsung is making some major announcements this week at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. This is not the first that Samsung 2019 TVs lineup come with Alexa and Assistant voice control, the company has previously announced that they are working to bring the iTunes App to Samsung’s TV. It is expected that iTunes Support for Samsung Tv will come around so Alexa and Google support also releases at that time.
The company has not planned to bring these supports to the older version of Samsung TVs, as they have updated a few prior-year models, After a few months when its latest sets hit the market, so it’s a possibility.
