YouTube TV is one of the latter, and today's new feature is "voice remote".

Google is surprising some YouTube TV subscribers with a new feature to start the week. It's worth mentioning that this isn't an update that you can download from the Google Play Store, but rather a server-side push that enables " voice remote" on selected Android devices in waves.

With voice remote, users will be able to control YouTube TV using their voice by issuing commands, such as navigating through the different channels, playing select channels, and also skipping around in programs.

Going forward, once you hit your self-imposed time limit in the YouTube app, an alert will show up reminding you it's time to take a break.

Here are a couple of screenshots that show some of the commands I just mentioned.

We're approaching a time when there will be no digital service without some form of voice control associated with it, and now Google is turning its attention to YouTube TV. The new feature introduced is called as voice remote and it is an incremental update and presently available to some selected users.
