Whether you just got a brand-new 2020 Samsung TV or you've had it for a while, setting up Google Assistant is more or less the same. Once Google Assistant has been activated, you'll be able to control your TV with your voice!
Step 1. If you haven't set up your TV yet, turn it on and follow the on-screen instructions to go through the initial setup. If your TV is already set up and you would rather set up Google Assistant at a later time, that's not a problem. Just navigate to Settings, and then select General. Select Voice, and then select Voice Assistant.
Step 2. When prompted, select Google Assistant as your voice assistant. Note: If you do not see Google Assistant as an available option, update your TV's software to the latest version.
Step 3. If needed, continue setting up your TV. When you're ready, press and hold the Mic button on the remote. Setup prompts will appear on your TV screen.
Step 4. Give Google permission to help you get things done with your voice.
Step 5. Select Allow to let Google and Samsung share information with each other.
Step 6. Next, you'll need to continue the setup on your smartphone. First, make sure your phone is on the same Wi-Fi network as your TV.
Step 7. Open the Google Assistant app on your phone and say “Set up my Assistant device”. If you have an Android device, the Google Assistant app is pre-installed. For iOS, simply download it from the App store.
Step 8. Select your TV from the list of devices, and then tap Next.
Step 9. Your TV should show a code that matches the one on your phone. Tap Yes on the phone to confirm.
Step 10. Tap Allow giving your TV permission to access your phone.
