Sky Q users have just been given another new trick to try on their set-top box. Those that have this latest TV system installed in their homes are probably well used to barking orders into their remote control with voice commands now able to find content, change channels, pause live TV and even turn off the box itself. Sky is constantly adding more and more features to its voice commands and now there’s something new to try this week.
To celebrate the release of the hotly anticipated FRIENDS: THE REUNION, which will be broadcast tomorrow (May 27), Sky has added a bunch of fun ways to find and record the show by using just your voice. Now, you can of course simply say “Friends: The Reunion” into your remote to track down this new episode but that would be boring.
Instead, you give a number of famous phrases a try which will all bring up instant access to this blockbuster TV event.
Here are some things to try if you’re a massive fan of Friends.
