Google Assistant Is Coming To Samsung 2020 TVs In Select Countries
Google is making its Assistant available on all Samsung 2020 TVs in the UK, France, Germany, and Italy. It will also be available in 12 other countries by the end of 2020, according to the company.
In October 2020, Google launched its voice assistant on Samsung’s TVs in the US. According to the company, the feature will roll out in Spain, Brazil, India, and South Korea later in November 2020. The voice assistant is to coexist with Amazon’s Alexa and Samsung’s own Bixby voice assistants on the devices.
Per Samsung, the Google voice assistant can control the TV directly with commands like changing channels or adjusting the volume. It can also control other Google Assistant-compatible smart home devices like thermostats or lights and provide information on the weather, and play music. Additionally, it integrates with other Google services like Search, Photos, Maps, and Calendar.

Google had previously integrated its assistant with Samsung’s 2019 TVs, but, users had to issue commands using a separate device equipped with the voice assistant like a Google Home smart speaker. The newer models, however, allows users to issue voice commands to their TVs directly by holding down the microphone button on its remote.
To enable Google’s voice assistant, first, you have to be in a compatible country, then from the Settings menu, go to General > Voice > Voice Assistant. Then you can select Google Assistant as a voice assistant.
Samsung says it is rolling out support for all 2020 4K and 8K QLED TVs, Crystal UHD TVs, The Frame, The Serif, The Sero, and The Terrace.
