Xfinity skill for Amazon Alexa

I see commercials for Dish TV working with Amazon Echo, what is the plan for xfinity. My house is a smarthouse several items are linked to my echo, I want to integrated the tvs. Tired of playing where is the remote. Tired of finding the voice button in the dark. Amazon is ready to integrate, when will Comcast be ready? Or do customers need to switch services?

As a quadriplegic Customer who can't use my hands and arms well. I also think there should be an Xfinity Alexa skill. It's hard for me to push the voice button on the regular remote

Voice Control can already be acheived with Alexa or Google Home using a Harmony Remote w/Hub.

Feature requests - Alexa Xfinity Home Skill and X1 Home Skill

The next steps for Comcast . . .

1) build an amazon Alexa Skill for Xfinity Home, so we can can control lighting using our amazon echo devices.

2) integrate the X1 remote so we can control lights using X1 voice commands.

Re: Feature requests - Alexa Xfinity Home Skill and X1 Home Skill

Great!  Voice commands now work with the X1 remote.  I can say "Turn on the family room light" and it does.  The TV does not have to be one to use the X1 remote to do this.

 

Now . . . can we add an amazon alexa skill also?  Then you would not have to pick up the X1 remote.
