From November 14, users will be able to activate the technology and perform searches purely through the power of their voice. Say what you want to see and it should magically appear, from last week's episode of Homeland to instructional videos on the difference between a half-Windsor and full-Windsor tie knot. Simpler tasks, such as changing the channel, performing internet searches, launching apps or searching content for favorite actors can also be performed by voice command.

An integrated and intuitive way to browse over 100,0000 films and TV series on Google Play even when users are already watching something.
