How to set up Google Home and Amazon Alexa on select Hisense TVs

Voice assistant technology was once something that only existed in movies. Now, heading into the third decade of the 21st century, it’s part of our daily lives as the presence of artificial intelligence continues to grow, with everything from TVs to refrigerators now featuring internet connectivity. If you’re the proud owner of a 2019 or 2020 Hisense TV complete with VIDAA 4, you’ll be able to use both Google Home and Amazon Alexa. 

That means owners of Q8, S8, R5, R6, R7, and R8 models will be able to use voice commands to perform a plethora of tasks, such as turning the TV on and off, changing inputs and controlling volume, to name a few. Here’s how to set up either your Google Home and Amazon Alexa:
