Google has started rolling out 'voice remote' support for YouTube TV

YouTube for iOS has rolled out a new feature to remind viewers to "take a break" from the app, a feature highlighted by Google as their recent I/O developer conference, to balance technology in people's lives.

Google has begun to roll out "voice remote" to YouTube TV users, according to Android Police.

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. The new feature introduced is called as voice remote and it is an incremental update and presently available to some selected users. Dubbed "voice remote", the functionality, it lets you do certain important tasks through voice commands. For example, you can say "go back to my last channel" or "Play NBC". We never saw the feature appear in the app, but we've been tipped that it has finally started rolling out. You should also get a popup in the app to tell you about the new feature when it becomes available to you. Until then, you'll just have to stare longingly at the screenshots.
