Samsung’s 2019 TVs were previously integrated with the Google Assistant, but at that time users had to give their commands via a separate device with a voice assistant such as the Google Home smart speaker. With the new models, users can directly issue voice commands to their TVs by pressing and holding the microphone button on the remote control.
If you are in a compatible country and want to enable the Google Assistant, you can do so by heading to the Settings menu, selecting “General”, then “Voice”, and finally “Voice Assistant.” From there, Google Assistant can be selected as the voice assistant.
Samsung says it offers support on the following models: “All 2020 4K and 8K QLED TVs, Crystal UHD TVs, The Frame, The Serif, The Sero and The Terrace.”
