Vizio SmartCast TVs Expand Voice Control Capabilities

Add with new Google Assistant actions to smart televisions.

Vizio, Inc. has announced the introduction of expanded Google Assistant actions for Vizio SmartCast TVs, granting consumers access to a wider range of voice control features. As mentioned in yesterday’s Google launch event in New York City, Vizio SmartCast TV users with a Google Home or Google Assistant-enabled device, like the Google Home Hub, will have the ability to use simple voice commands for input selection as well as pausing, resuming, stopping, fast-forwarding, and rewinding content. The new Vizio SmartCast features for Google Assistant will be available to Vizio SmartCast TV customers in the coming weeks.

Vizio SmartCast allows consumers to enjoy added convenience through Google Home voice control. To pause, resume, rewind, or fast forward content playing on their Vizio Smart TV, users can simply say, “Hey Google” followed by the command. This functionality also crosses over into volume control, allows users to switch their TVs’ input and more.
