Sky Q users will get “enhanced” voice control later this month as part of a new software update being rolled out to set top boxes.
The new Voice Control lets users to speak into their remote and use a range of commands to quickly and easily get to the TV they love, including playing content, rewinding and changing channels.
The update will also bring a new favourite channels menu and, for customers with a 2TB box, an Ultra HD section in My Q.
Earlier this year the boxes gained a voice search function and Sky says over 9m searches have been made to date.
Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s Chief Marketing Officer, commented: “Our customers already love Voice Search on Sky Q and we think they are going to love Voice Control even more.
“You will be able to find your recordings, rewind an amazing goal to watch again or change channel all through a simple voice command.
“It’s a quicker, easier and more fun way to get to the shows, sports and films you want to watch.”
