Sky has an upgrade to its voice search feature for Sky Q TV users, improving the experience with a better algorithm and support for more apps.

Never content to leave things standing still, Sky is bringing yet another update to its Sky Q platform. The useful voice search feature now includes results from Sky, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ and the BBC – the latter three being new additions.

Asking ‘What should I watch’ will now give you many more recommendations, opening a page of results with sections such as ‘Because you watched’ and ‘New series for You’ as well as the following:

  • Top 10 this week on Sky
  • Popular on Netflix
  • Popular on Prime Video
  • More favourites
  • Trending on Sky Cinema
  • Trending on Sky Sports
  • Continue Watching

Furthermore, the Sky Q voice search facility – made possible with a dedicated button and microphone on the remote control – can now respond to "Get ready for 2021" or "Sky Unmissable," which takes you to a collection of trailers.

If you don’t have a Sky Q Voice remote yet then you can claim a free one via the My Sky app. Head to the Sky VIP tab in the bottom right corner and you’ll see the offer.
