Voice Control with DIRECTV STREAM

TV Is Just A Command Away


With Google Assistant, your TV experience is now better than ever. No more trying to figure out that one favorite movie with that one actor. What YOU want to watch is just Your Voice Away.

How to use google assistant 

  1. Press the Microphone Key
  2. When you see a solid blue light on the remote, tell the assistant what you need like:
    • “What time does Judge Judy come on?”
    • “What’s on HBO?”
    • “View the guide”
    • “Pause, play or resume!”
    • “Play Wonder Woman”
    • And more!

Heads up: Google Assistant listens for up to 6 seconds. You do not need an account to use basic functions.
