With Voice Control, you’re able to do even more with your Sky Q touch remote.

To use Voice Control, press the voice button and say what you want to do. If you’re unsure what to say, why not try some of the below to get you started...
- “Change channel to 401.”
- “Play Game of Thrones.”
- “Play” “Pause” “Rewind” “Fast forward.”
- “Skip twenty minutes.”
- “Go to New Series.”
- “Turn on subtitles.”
