Dish is getting Google Assistant voice control soon

Dish is getting Google Assistant voice control soon”

Google Assistant will add a lot of new functionality to the set-top boxes.

Launching at some point during the first half of 2018, you'll be able to control your Dish Network programming via Google Assistant through a Google Home speaker, Android device, and iPhone. Dish customers will need either a Hopper, Joey, or Wally box to use this feature, and supported languages now include English and Spanish. Notably, the offering also marks the first time the systems can be controlled in both English and Spanish. After bringing Alexa voice control to its services back in May, Dish announced today that it will be doing the same with Google's AI offering.

Google Assistant will let you navigate, play, pause, fast-forward, rewind, and search TV content by title, actor, channel, and genre.

Users will be able to give basic voice commands, such as telling Google Assistant to find a specific show or go to a specific network or channel number.

In November, Dish started shipping their newest, second-generation voice remote to customers who order a Hopper DVR.

We don't know exactly when this functionality is going to arrive, but it will happen "in the coming months".
