How do I operate my Samsung 2014 Smart TV through speech (voice commands)?

Last Update date : Nov 23. 2020

Please note, this section is designed to give you basic product troubleshooting information, also refer to your user manual for more information.

Voice Control has two modes: Interactive Voice Control and Imperative Voice Control. Imperative Voice Control requires you to use pre-defined commands to control the TV. Imperative Voice commands do not require an internet connection

Some examples of these are:

  • "View Commands"
  • "Help"
  • "Exit"
  • "Volume Up"


Interactive Voice Control lets you give more conversational instructions to the TV.

Some examples of these are:

  • "What's the weather like in [place]?"
  • "Anything interesting on tonight?"
  • "Watch [TV program]"
  • "Search Google for [anything]"

Important: To use Interactive Voice commands you must first set up Smart Hub (agreeing to the EULAs), set the TV's clock and have the TV connected to the internet. If you try to use interactive voice commands without completing these requirements the TV will display a notification pop-up.

2014 Smart TVs include the Smart Control remote that has a microphone built into it.


To use voice commands with the remote microphone follow these steps:Confirm that voice commands are enabled. (This setting can be changed in the Tools menu, Status menu or Main menu)Press and release Voice.


Wait for the Voice Control indicator to appear at the top of the TV and then say your command into the microphone in your Smart Control.


Tip: the natural speech function with 2014 Smart interaction allows you to use phrases such as:

  • Find me a [genre] on [broadcast network].
  • Find me a [film/TV show] with [actor's name] in it.
  • Find me a [film/TV show] by [director's name].


From your phrases Smart Interaction will pull out the key words and search for your desired content or make recommendations based on your past preferences.


Tips:I f you would like to see all available commands say "Help"

Speak in a moderately loud voice but do not shout.Speak slowly and clearly.
