Google is rolling out 'voice remote' in YouTube TV

Google is rolling out 'voice remote' in YouTube TV”

Dubbed "voice remote", the functionality, it lets you do certain important tasks through voice commands.

Google has begun to roll out "voice remote" to YouTube TV users, according to Android Police. If not, head into Settings and look for the Voice Remote option to toggle it on. This feature, when enabled, allows users to control their YouTube TV experience completely via voice controls. We never saw the feature appear in the app, but we've been tipped that it has finally started rolling out.

Going forward, once you hit your self-imposed time limit in the YouTube app, an alert will show up reminding you it's time to take a break.

Your command will be transcribed. It can be located in the app itself and can be guided through commands like "Play NGC" or "Open the menu". Moreover, one can also control the volume simply by their voice.

Interestingly, a few months back, a 'voice remote support page' emerged in the app.

As of now, the feature is not available on Rokus, Android TVs or other YouTube TV-equipped screens. Through the program, Google wants to help users realize just how much time they're spending on a phone, in turn hopefully combating smartphone addiction.
