Our advanced voice control platform was built to power the X1 Voice Remote and now we’re expanding that platform to give customers even greater control of their connected homes.

At the heart of our voice control platform is our Natural Language Processing technology, which uses artificial intelligence to understand what our customers are saying, interpret those commands, and surface what they want, all in less than a second.

This technology is seamlessly integrated into the X1 platform, making it easy to navigate thousands of titles to find exactly what you want, or discover new content by simply mentioning a genre or a favorite actor. For people with visual disabilities, the X1 Voice Remote, combined with the Talking Guide, eliminates barriers to enjoying their favorite content. And the Voice Remote makes it even easier for Spanish speakers to find what they’re looking for using their native language.
