Google adds voice search to TV Remote app for Android


Google is rolling out an updated version of its Google TV remote app for Android, adding support for voice search capabilities.

The app, optimized for the Google TV platform, enables consumers to use their smartphone as a remote control and send video clips and Web pages to the television screen. With the release of Google TV Remote version 1.1, consumers may now leverage voice input capabilities to find movies, TV shows and other content offerings. CNet notes that hardware limitations prevented Google from introducing voice input options in previous iterations of the app. Version 1.1 also brings new D-Pad navigation. Article
