How to control Samsung TV with Voice Control (9000 Series)?

Last Update date : Oct 10. 2020

You can access and select certain menu options and functions using voice commands. For more effective voice recognition, speak slowly and clearly in the language specified in the System > Voice Control > Language option.

• Voice control has two modes: Interactive voice control and Imperative voice control
   - Interactive voice control lets you give Conversational instructions to the TV    
   - Imperative voice control requires you to use pre-defined commands    

To use Interactive voice control, you must set up SMART HUB, set the clock and agree to the user's agreement on the use of terms. If you try to use Interactive voice control without completing all of these requirements, the TV displays a notification pop-up. If the pop-up appears, follow the on-screen instructions and complete the necessary settings.

Imperative voice control is available regardless of the Interactive voice control settings. Please read through the instructions before using Voice Control.
