Hisense Smart TVs add Amazon Alexa

January 5, 2018

Hisense 4K Smart TVs will now offer a wide variety of voice features right out of the box courtesy of Amazon Alexa.

Alexa will help users control certain primary functions, including voice commands, changing inputs and controlling volume. Additionally, the Alexa voice service seamlessly connects to music services like iHeartRadio, Pandora, as well as thousands of Alexa skills. Skills allow Alexa-enabled Hisense 4K Smart TV users to do everything from shopping for groceries and gifts to even ordering a pizza. Alexa will also enable users to connect to other smart home products so that they can control the lights, turn off the air conditioner, operate other IoT devices that work with Alexa and more.

“We are thrilled to bring Alexa voice technology to our Smart TVs,” said Mark Viken, HisenseUSAVice President of Marketing. “While content providers and other TV manufacturers tend to focus on quantity of content, Hisense recognises that the future is all about simplicity, making it easy for consumers to find and watch their favourite content, play music, control their smart home and more.”
