Samsung Launches Smart TVs With Google Assistant

Samsung Launches Smart TVs With Google Assistant”

The list of TV models that are getting the voice control support includes 8K and 4K QLED TV models, the 2020 Crystal UHD TV, the 2020 Frame and Serif TV models, and lastly, the 2020 Sero and Terrace TVs.

As per The Verge, the TVs already had voice command settings available that could be controlled with the mic on the remote, but the user will have to tell it if he/she wants to use Google Assistant rather than Samsung's default Bixby assistant. Although the Samsung TV models come with Google Assistant, the voice control feature was handled by Samsung's Bixby platform.

"Just as easily, you'll soon be able to ask, 'Hey Google, where do I vote?' and Google Assistant will share details on where to vote nearby on your Assistant-enabled phone, smart speaker or Smart Display", Yunhan Xu, Product Manager at Google wrote in a blog post. From there, select the Google Assistant and follow the instructions shown on your TV and the Assistant smartphone app.

Once installed, the Google Assistant can be used to control the TV and find content to watch, but also answer questions, read out the news and weather forecast, and of course control all of your smart home devices. We haven't tested Assistant support on either the Fitbits or the Samsung TVs yet, but it could make them more useful and intuitive.

To make life easier, Google will be adding Google Assistant support on the recently launched Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3 smartwatches.

Well, this is the first time Google Assistant is available outside of WearOS smartwatches.

The ability to control physical activities implies the Google Assistant will have a deeper level of integration with the Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3 smartwatches. Because it is a mature voice assistant and people are more familiar with Google Assistant than any other assistant.

Users will be able to use the Google Assistant to bring more convenience to their wrist.
