Dish Network has announced the integration of Google Assistant into its Hopper, Hopper Duo, Joey or Wally device range. Users can control their TV using their voice when paired with an Assistant device like Google Home, Android phones or iPhones.
Customers can ask the Assistant to set recordings, adjust volume and launch apps like Game Finder, Netflix and Pandora. Customers can also use the Assistant to navigate, play, pause, fast-forward, rewind and search content based on channel, title, actor or genre.
When using search functionality, the results displayed include Dish’s live, recorded and on-demand titles, as well as Netflix’s selection of TV shows and movies.
