YouTube TV app gets new voice remote feature

YouTube TV is one of the latter, and today's new feature is "voice remote".

The feature is available only to those who are premium users and pay Dollars 40 per month for a YouTube TV streaming subscription.

Some Google apps get new features tied to updated versions, but others seem to spawn new things at random intervals when Google deems it appropriate. Dubbed "voice remote", the functionality, it lets you do certain important tasks through voice commands. It works pretty much like it sounds it would, letting you control YouTube TV with voice commands like "Jump back to my last channel", "Play NBC", or "Turn on the Trail Blazers game". Rather, it's just something that you'll eventually see in your app in the form of a floating action button. Since it is a server side update, the users will be informed when the voice remote will be available on their Android device. If you've recorded shows, you can jump to specific points in those by talking to the app, as well as control the volume.

This feature is particularly interesting because a voice remote support page popped up several months ago.
