Sky Q customers can now find shows and films starring their favourite actors just by saying their name, after the broadcaster enabled a new voice search feature.
To use the feature, which is powered by US set top box firm TiVo, viewers simply press and hold the voice button on the side of the Sky Q touch remote and say the name of the show, film, actor or director they’re looking for.
Movie buffs can even search by quoting famous lines such as When Harry Met Sally’s iconic “I’ll have what she’s having”.
Alongside voice search, Sky has rolled out a collection of features including making the ‘My Q’ section, which features personalised recommendations, the new Sky Q homepage and allowing Facebook videos to be watched via the set top box.
Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky’s brand director of TV and content products, commented: “May the force be with you” with your new voice search.
“Just ask Sky Q to “show me the money” by pressing the side of the touch remote, making it even easier and faster to find, discover and watch the TV you love.”
