The voice search feature on Android TV isn’t just for tracking down a new movie or YouTube video to watch (though it does those, and many other searches, very well). It also works much the same as voice commands on an Android phone or tablet, giving you quick answers to general queries.
To launch a voice search, press the the dedicated microphone button, which is found on the Nexus Player and Nvidia Shield remote, or the smartphone app (more on that later). Then do the same voice query you would on your phone, like “San Francisco Giants score” or “the capital of Jakarta” or "Oscar movie winners 2014." You’ll get a dedicated card with the answer, along with a deep search into related apps that may offer content worth watching.
This feature is one of those fun capabiliites to play around with when you first get an Android TV, and may impress friends and family who aren't up to speed with technology.
