What is Voice search?


Voice search is a feature of the DIRECTV phone app that lets you find whatever you want to watch on TV just by using your voice. It also lets you play or record what it finds for you. All you have to do is talk to the app just as you would to a person.

You can use Voice search anywhere, at home or on the go. When you’re at home, you even have the option of seeing your dialogue and search results on your TV screen, rather than on your phone screen. (Requires an HD DVR model HR24 or higher; your phone and receiver must be joined to the same Wi-Fi network). When you use your TV screen, as an added bonus, you’ll also see program recommendations tailored just for you based on your viewing and search history.
