TDS TV+ Support


Google Assistant Voice Commands

Learn to search for programs, change channels, launch apps, control any Google Smart Home devices, and much more using your voice.

TDS TV+ gives you the ability to use Google Assistant.

To issue a voice command, press the Google Assistant button and speak naturally into the remote. Once you've pressed the Google Voice Assistant button, wait for the Google search bar to appear on the screen before speaking.

Here are some of the ways you can search with the Google Assistant:

  • Search for shows by saying show titles like "How I Met Your Mother"
  • Launch applications by saying the name of applications installed on your device. Say "Netflix" or "YouTube"
  • Search for sports by saying team names like "Red Sox"
  • Find out when your team is playing next by asking" When are the Celtics playing next?"
  • Access your My Shows page by saying "My Recordings"
  • Change to a channel by saying the channel name like "Travel Channel"
  • Search for weather by asking, "What's the weather today?"

For the best experience using the Voice Command functionality, sign in to your Google account or sign up if you don’t already have one. For more information on creating an account, visit

Tip: Voice commands are disabled when Parental Controls are on.
