This marks the first time that DISH customers with a Hopper, Joey or Wally can use voice to control their TV in multiple languages, including English and Spanish. If you look at Alexa, you can only control via Amazon Echo smart speakers. It's a fairly direct third-party skill that doesn't incorporate TiVo's own voice search commands into the system. Existing Hopper owners could order the new remote for $20.

The new Google Assistant smart displays keep trickling in.

"Google Assistant will follow you, from your phone...or from future headphones that will have a voice assistant built in". CES 2018 has been home to numerous product launches that features some sort of Assistant integration, and now Dish Network has announced that it'll be joining the Google Assistant bandwagon.

In order to link the devices, users are required to connect to them through the Google Home app or Google Assistant on their smartphone. The front-facing camera will come in handy for video calling, using Google Duo. Google Assistant will then take over certain tasks, if you'd like, including the basic ones like rewinding, fast-forwarding, pausing, and playing.

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.
