It would be great if I could get my google home to control my optik tv. Considering there is a wifi app on my smart phone, I don’t see why it couldn’t be possible. That would blow shaw’s BlueSky TV away.
I would like to see this happened with the Google home assistance integrated with the Telus Optik TV in the near future
To add on this, Google Home integration would be great to have on Pik TV.
Thanks for the idea, @SuMMiT and for the support, @Spud387. I've forwarded it to our product team and they'll take a look.
I echo this sentiment. With Google Home and Amazon Alexa on the market it would be great to be able to command Optik TV with one's voice! I'd much rather do this than with a special remote such as Shaw has.
For some reason, this is not working for me (I'm in AB), any idea why? How do you become part of the beta program?
ya, i set up new Optik account at a different house and linking my Optik account to google home thu the website.. its not workin!
