Comcast helps customers with more voice command entertainment

Techstination feature for Monday, April 27, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    Can a voice remote help you get through the day?    Comcast has added some new features to the  Xfinity X1 and internet streaming Flex voice remotes.    For instance, says VP of AI and Discovery Products Jeanine Heck…

“You can say “Happy stuff” into the remote and you get back a whole bunch of things that will just make you happy.  And you can say “Pizza stuff” into the remote and you can get back a whole bunch of videos on how to make pizza or to watch movies where pizza is a central figure to the plot.   And there are just lots of other features like movie quotes so you can say things like “phone home” or “Yo, Adrienne” and you’ll get back the movie that that quote is featured in.”

The company also has an Inside Guide..of helpful stay at home tips.
