As per The Verge, the TVs already had voice command settings available that could be controlled with the mic on the remote; but the user will have to tell it if he/she wants to use Google Assistant rather than Samsung’s default Bixby assistant.


Another feature is that the users can also control other smart home devices after they have connected to Google Assistant.


Post installing an OTA update, users can enable Assistant on their Samsung TV by going to Settings.
