Voice control

It is fairly cumbersome to navigate through the TV guide and search for a particular Movie/TV series or On demand. It would be nice if Optik TV could add a voice command function such as Shaw blu-sky. For e.g if you want to watch Batman you could speak into the remote and the TV guide searches and consolidates all channels/on demand/Netflix and shows you Batman so you may select any of those mediums to view from. Integration of Google Assistant/Alexa/Siri etc would be nice as a extra bonus.

Hi @Monishb! Great idea. We actually have a beta action on Google that allows you to use voice to search on your Optik TV using a Google Home device (Google Assistant can also be downloaded on your smartphone and will be available very shortly). If you'd like to test it out, check out telus.com/HomeAssistant to learn more!

Thank you. While this feature is nice, I’ve tried it today but when asking to search for a TV show all it does is bring up the search function with the information pre filled. To clarify further the voice search function should bring together the Movie/TV show from all sources e.g super channel on demand, Crave on demand, Netflix content,Telus on demand ( pay per watch) into one screen and let you choose any of those mediums to play from like Shaw’s blue sky using voice control.
