The push-to-talk functionality allows users to click and speak directly into the remote to control their TV. A dedicated voice button also means users won't experience false wakeups that unnecessarily activate a microphone. Not only can users launch apps and switch picture modes using the push-to-talk Voice Remote, but they can also search for content by posing complex queries with multiple search terms in a single request. Beyond TV control and content discovery, the Voice Remote will also include smart features that allow users to search Wikipedia, check the weather, and more.
The Vizio Voice Remote expands Vizio's existing voice capabilities. Vizio SmartCast TVs are already compatible with Siri, the Google Assistant, and Alexa-enabled devices. With upcoming SmartCast Mobile updates, users can also set up and pair the Google Assistant and Alexa-enabled devices to their Vizio SmartCast TVs
