sky q voice search comedy movies

Sky has announced the addition of voice search and personalisation features to its Sky Q service, with the aim of making it easier for customers to find the content they want.

The voice search function allows viewers to find television series, films, sports events and more by pressing and holding the voice button on the Sky Q remote and saying the name of what they are looking for.

It also lets users discover new things by searching for certain genres or star ratings, or saying a phrase like 'comedy movies' or 'films directed by Michael

There's also an option for customers to search for particular films by saying famous quotes, such as "Say hello to my little friend" from Scarface or "I'll have what she's having' from Harry Met Sally.

Luke Bradley-Jones, Sky's Brand Director of TV and Content Products, commented: "'May the force be with you' with your new voice search. Just ask Sky Q to 'show me the money' by pressing the side of the touch remote, making it even easier and faster to find, discover and watch the TV you love."

Sky also announced that the My Q section will become the new Sky Q homepage, offering improved personalisation and advice for viewers. The platform will provide recommendations based on previous viewing and showcase new series from all channels.

The Continue Watching section will allow people to pick up from where they left off in previous television episodes, while the Recordings and TV Guide pages will be easier to reach from the My Q homepage.

Furthermore, Facebook users can now watch videos via the My Photos app, which lets people sign into their profile and view the latest visual content from the social network on their TVs.

Sky is set to add more new features to Sky Q later this year, including enhanced voice control and sports restart.
