Alexa Voice Assistant

Simply plug the Toshiba Connect far-field microphone into the TV’s USB ports, sign in to Amazon using a single-step sign process and talk to Alexa to control the TV with just your voice.
With this innovative integration of Alexa, you can turn your Toshiba TV on and off, change channels and inputs, adjust the volume, and much more. Toshiba TVs with Alexa also add a greater visual dimension to the Alexa experience. For example, viewers can ask Alexa to search for their favourite tracks on Amazon Music, ask for the latest news updates, as well as setting reminders. They can even ask Alexa to control compatible smart devices – everything from smart light bulbs to smart air conditioners can be controlled.
