Dish Network customers who have the company's Wally, Hopper, or Joey DVR will soon have access to Hands-Free TV via Google Assistant support.

Incidentally, Dish already offers its own voice control remote. Right now, there was no mention of recording, but that limitation is also with Alexa. Your voice becomes a TiVo remote, but it won't be a TiVo Vox remote (the new microphone-equipped remote TiVo released last year).

"Google Assistant will follow you, from your phone...or from future headphones that will have a voice assistant built in".

You will be able to work with Insteon devices using Google Assistant by making use of Google Home, Android smartphones, iPhones and any other Android-powered gadgets. In fact, Cortana will be competing against other assistants this year with more presence on devices. "By continuing to enhance their experience by adding HD display with a touch screen and a front-facing camera, people will find even more ways to make these speakers an important part of their lives, routines and enjoyment". While Google Duo hasn't seen much love from the users so far, we hope that it gets the attention it deserves after its integration with more smart devices.

The Google Assistant will be able to help end-users navigate, play, pause, fast-forward, rewind and search TV content based on channel, title, actor and genre.

Dish announced today that it has been working on integrating Google Home and Google Assistant into its TV service, fleshing out the options for controlling a TV with your voice.
