X1 Remote App Voice Control

My app stopped working recently. App seems to recognize voice input and displays on screen, but no results display. This is unfortunate for Comcast given the current voice control marketing campaign. Any insights appreciated. Thanks.

Re: X1 Remote App Voice Control

On March 22, version 3.5 of the XFINITY TV Remote app was released for Apple devices with iOS 9 and Android devices with Ice Cream Sandwich OS or later.


With this release, the XFINITY TV remote app now supports voice remote functionality (requires iOS 10 on Apple devices and Jellybean on Android devices), allowing XFINITY X1 customers to control their TV boxes using voice commands like “Record Saturday Night Live,” “The Secret Life of Pets” and “Channel 810.” The app also now includes directional pad (d-pad) and numeric keypad functionality.


Please note that voice control with the XFINITY TV Remote app only works on X1 TV boxes, excluding RNG150 devices.
