Tell Your TV What To Do with the New XFINITY Voice Remote #Giveaway

Disclosure 1

Technology is simply amazing. I can remember watching The Jetsons as a kid and thinking no way will we ever be able to do any of those futuristic things. But now? We can FaceTime and carry thousands of songs in tiny devices and we can even speak to our TV. Just this past month, XFINITY introduced the new Voice Remote for the X1 Entertainment Operating System, which allows you to literally tell your TV what to do. What do I mean by that? My husband (a.k.a. Jolly Dad a.k.a. Mike) will show you!

As you can see, he’s super excited about all of the cool features of the new Voice Remote!

Voice Remote Features:

  • Press the voice button then say whatever you’d like X1 to help you with. You can use it to change channels, find shows, get recommendations, launch apps and more.
  • You can search by actor, channel, sports team and much, much more – no special commands, just plain English. You can even ask it what you should watch or to show you more like your favorite shows!
  • With a backlit keyboard and aim-anywhere control, it has never been easier to navigate with ease, even in the dark.
  • The voice remote is another example of XFINITY’s commitment to accessibility for all. By giving the options to simply say, “Turn on Closed Captioning” or to use voice guidance, everyone can find his or her favorite shows and movies.

Plus, it has some really FUN features too! It recognizes hundreds of popular movie quotes! For example, if you tell your voice remote, “If you build it, he will come,” it will find the movie Field of Dreams. You can even find Frozen by singing along with some of the hit songs like “Let It Go”.  Do you speak minionese? Well, the boys at my house love The Minions and were super excited when they discovered that the Voice Remote understands minionese lol. So for example, if you say “banana” into the remote, the system pulls up food shows. Say “Popagonia” and you get romance movies. Super cute!
