Amazon video skill was added in DVR last month and now the company is rendering the voice services to manage and set DVR recordings. The same has been applied by TiVo on its DVRs through Video skill API.
Furthermore, TiVo is also planning to launch the smart home integration feature in collaboration with Amazon Alexa and Google.
According to company persons, the company is offering the service to its users so that they can control all the smart things available at home with voice. For example, you can change the channel from CBS to Hulu, Amazon, Fox by simply speaking the same to ‘Alexa’.
The main difference between the Alexa voice assistant available in TiVo DVRs and other DVRs is its support for different smart home devices through unique codes and features. A skip mode is only available in TiVo DVR but not in other company DVRs.
If you want to skip commercials, you can speak to Alexa for the same. If you want to move forward or back by 8 seconds, then even you can command Alexa, it will act accordingly.
