Sony has added Google Assistant to its 4K HDR sets running Android TV. The voice assistant is now available on all 2017 models and select 2016 versions. Users can now control their TVs, smart homes, and utilize the power of Google search by pressing the microphone button on their remote.

Sony’s adoption of Google Assistant is the second Android TV device to receive the smart assistant, after the NVIDIA Shield TV got the service back in September.

Sony says the 2016 editions of the XBR - Z9D, XBR - X800D, X BR - X750/X700D, and all 2017 Sony Android TVs will have the full Google Assistant experience after downloading the software update, which is available today.
