To use voice commands with your EPICO remote, press and release the Google Assistant button (see image below), then say your command.

Remote Google assistant button

Here are examples of useful commands you can try:

Search content

The results will show content from all available sources, whether it’s live, recently aired, on demand, and even content from installed apps such as YouTube or Netflix:

  • Search by title, e.g. "TV show Dexter" or "Search (for) the series Dexter".
  • Search by genre, e.g. "Comedy movies".
  • Search by year, e.g. "Movies from 2012".
  • Search by actor or director, e.g. "Tom Hanks movies".
  • Search by a combined search, e.g. "Comedy movies from 2012".

While a show is playing

  • "Play" or "Pause" or "Resume" or "Stop"
  • "Seek/go/jump to X minutes" or "Jump for X minutes"
  • "Fast Forward" or "Next": jumps forward 30 seconds by default
  • "Rewind": jumps backward 30 seconds by default
  • "Fast Forward" or "Rewind X minutes"
  • "Previous": jumps backward for 7 seconds by default
  • "Go to beginning"

Other Google voice commands to try 

  • "Good morning"
  • "What's the weather today?"
  • "Open Netflix"

Good to know:
You will get more reliable search results when:

  • You use "Find" in your search to let Google Assistant know you're searching for content
  • You specify if it's a TV Show or Movie you are looking for; e.g. "Find the movie 1917" or "Find the TV show Billions".
