For decades, remote controls have gotten more and more complicated and numerous. There are just too many things plugged into our TVs, and our TVs themselves are just too capable. Instead of clumsily scrolling through apps or selecting game consoles with a myriad of remotes, why not use your voice?

Voice control is ideal for lots of TV use cases, but before you do anything, figure out which of the major voice control gadgets you have. Some TVs will only give you voice controls for Amazon’s AI assistant, or only for Google’s, and you don’t want to be left out. That said, there are several great TVs that support both of those major platforms, giving you choice.
