As Part of the X1 Entertainment Operating System, the voice remote allows users to search through tens of thousands of shows and movies by simply talking into the remote. Most important, Convenience is the name of the game – just say it, then see it. Press the voice button then say whatever you’d like X1 to help you with. You can use it to change channels, find shows, get recommendations, launch apps and more.
Not only that, you can search by actor, channel, sports team and much, much more – no special commands, just
plain English. You can even ask it what you should watch or to show you more like your favorite shows!
Even relaxing and watching TV at night has become perfection.. no more need to search for your cell phone to light up the remote. With a backlit keyboard and aim-anywhere control, it has never been easier to navigate with ease, even in the dark.
The voice remote is another example of XFINITY’s commitment to accessibility for all. By giving the options to simply say, “Turn on Closed Captioning” or to use voice guidance, everyone can find his or her favorite shows and movies.
The remote even has some fun “hidden” features…it recognizes hundreds of popular movie quotes! For example, if you tell your voice remote, “If you build it, he will come,” it will find the movie Field of Dreams. Rumor has it that you can even find Frozen by singing along with some of its hits…Let it Go, anyone? See which ones you can find and let me know!
Even funner is the fact that you can even hear from your favorite celebs! responded back when you searched for their content?
Yep – the XFINITY Voice Remote can do that too! Try searching for “Taylor Swift 22” and see what she responds. You can find more hacks and cool features of the Voice Remote here. As well as check out this video on all the great features here:
