Sky has announced that they have started to roll out their voice search feature to their Sky Q customers in the UK.
The new voice search feature works with the existing Sky Q remote and allows you to search for movies and TV shows with voice commands.
With voice search viewers can find TV by pressing and holding the voice button on the side of the Sky Q touch remote, and simply saying what they’re looking for. Customers at home can ask Sky Q to take them to ‘Zootropolis’, ‘Billions’ or the ‘Liverpool game’ and access a great line-up of TV.
Movie buffs wanting to be a little more adventurous can even search using some of the most iconic quotes, including “Say hello to my little friend” and “I’ll have what she’s having.” And to discover something new, search a genre with a specific time, age or star rating, such as ‘comedy movies,’ ‘live cricket on this weekend’ and ‘Tom Hanks’ movies rated five stars’. Or find a movie and filter by award-winning actors and directors, including ‘films with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone’ or ‘movies directed by Michael Bay.’
Sky have said that the voice search feature is being rolled out to users in phases and all users will get it by the end of spring, the feature will be enabled with a software update.
