Your TV just got even more hands-free: Google Assistant comes to Dish

July 09, 2018 / Julian Chokkattu

If you’re looking for a reason to choose Dish Network over DirecTV for your satellite TV service, you just got one more, as Dish announced that it is rolling out Google Assistant across many of its devices. If you’re wondering what this means for you, it’s simple: Now you can control every aspect of your Dish hardware, including your DVR, using just your voice.Of course, this isn’t necessarily big news if you’re a fan of Amazon’s Alexa, as Dish has had support for Alexa since last year. It even added more functionality in June of this year as Dish added a new suite of voice commands to its Alexa skill. Still, if you’re an Android user or a Google Home fan, this is going to be much more useful for you.
