If you own an Amazon Echo device and a Sony 4K television (2017) with Android TV, you can now control your television by voicing your commands to Alexa. Thanks to a new firmware update for your Sony 4K TV, Alexa can control the power, volume, switch inputs, and change channels. You can even ask Alexa to play, pause, stop, or even fast forward your favorite show.
Alexa’s new capabilities are naturally only compatible with selected 2016 and 2017 models, with supported televisions showing the TV Control Setup with Amazon Alexa on the home screen. You can check if your television is supported in the list below:
The next time you get up from the couch and you forgot to pause the program you’ll be able to simply say “Alexa, pause on TV 1” so you don’t miss any of the action while you are out of view of the TV.
