Dish DVRs will soon be working with Google Assistant

Dish DVRs will soon be working with Google Assistant

Dish customers will need either a Hopper, Joey, or Wally box to use this feature, and supported languages now include English and Spanish. If you look at Alexa, you can only control via Amazon Echo smart speakers.

Hopper DVR owners in particular have access to a voice remote as part of Assistant's voice control tech suite. Your voice becomes a TiVo remote, but it won't be a TiVo Vox remote (the new microphone-equipped remote TiVo released last year).

At CES 2018, Google announced the support for Google Assistant for Smart Displays.

You can pick one up when it goes on sale in the summer.

You will be able to work with Insteon devices using Google Assistant by making use of Google Home, Android smartphones, iPhones and any other Android-powered gadgets. "We're excited to bring the LINK View to market with JBL and are committed to deliver a helpful, visual Google Assistant experience". The device will also have Chromecast functionality, and a speaker that will provide "high quality sound". The front-facing camera will come in handy for video calling, using Google Duo. You will still be able to make it the command hub for your connected smart home devices, from lighting to heating and more - controlled with your voice or touch.

Lou Schreurs, VP, Connected Home & Luxury Audio BU, General Management says, "When we launched the LINK series previous year it represented a major milestone for us, as the first voice-activated, multi-room speakers to use Google Assistant and deliver Grammy award-winning JBL sound".
