Android TV May Soon Get Google Assistant’s Voice Match


INTRO: Google is apparently working to integrate Google Assistant’s Voice Match feature to Android TVs. According to the latest reports from google 9to5, it says that the code is further suggesting the availability or we can say ensuring the presence of the Voice Match feature in the latest version of the Google Search app on Android TV.

The latest Google Search app on Android TV has version number 4.2.0. There is also a string for activating Voice Match in the app. The Voice Match currently lets you link up to maximum up to 6 people’s voices. Google launched this out Voice Match along with the option to adjust hotword sensitivity to more smart home devices in the previous week.

“The Voice Match allows your Assistant to directly identify you and tell you apart from others. The Assistant takes clips of your voice to form a unique voice model in it, which is only stored on your device(s). Your voice model may be sent temporarily to Google to better identify your voice for the next time you use the device,”  says the description of the Google Assistant voice match feature.

The new feature once enabled, will help you with convenient abilities and features like recognizing your voice to launch your Netflix profile and much more. It could also be useful to open Google Stadia when it becomes available.

Although it is quite surprising that Assistant didn’t support Voice Match thus far in Android TVs previously, it is now good to see the software giant finally focusing on offering a seamless experience. With all of that said, there’s no word or any announcement on the availability in the market yet. However, we could expect Google to announce the feature sooner rather than later, especially considering that it is almost ready for the market.

So, do you use Voice Match on your smart home devices or with your Android TV? Let us know in the comments.
