You can now control Dish’s Hopper DVRs with Google Assistant




The Google Assistant can now control Dish Network’s Hopper DVR devices. The feature will allow users to use the “OK Google” command to turn to a specific TV show or channel, rewind or pause a video, or record a particular programming.

The devices will work on a broadband internet connection with Hopper Duo, Wally single-tuner HD, and all generations of Hopper DVR or its Joey client. Spanish language support is planned in the future, but Dish has not released a specific timeline. No word on integration with Dish’s Sling service for subscribers who stream without the set-top box.

GOOGLE’S ROLLING OUT THE TV-READY ATTACHMENTS
Today’s announcement is useful if you predominantly use the Google Assistant over Amazon Alexa, which offered support for Hopper DVR boxes back in May. Meanwhile, Roku — which has a larger market share than Google Chromecast as of August 2017 — is reportedly working on a voice assistant of its own, which may bring yet another competitor to the digital entertainment assistant space.
