What's New?

Use Voice on Amazon Alexa to use Search on YouView

  • A new way to find your favourite shows

We've introduced a new feature which allows you to search for your favourite shows by title using your voice. 
 Once you've paired your Alexa device, you can ask Alexa to search for your favourite shows from any area in YouView.

  • Example of how to search:

"Alexa, search for Eastenders"
or 
"Alexa, search for Catastrophe"

Following this command, the search main menu section will come up with results related to this show. 

Then use the remote as usual to select a tile.
