Butt Dial


“Did you hear? A couple just used Alexa to butt dial a contact in their address book and send a recording of their fight. Welcome to the 21st century.” —Stuart Crane of VoiceMetrics

Yep. The butt dial heard around the world. Stuff happens.

TiVo Announces Amazon Alexa Connectivity

TiVo embraces Alexa. You should too!

TiVo Announces Amazon Alexa Connectivity

The live TV recording service and set-top box company TiVo has announced Amazon Alexa support for some of its products. That, of course, means that users will be able to control their TV experience with voice controls instead of a remote. Presumably, as per the announcement, users will need an Amazon Echo device synced to their TiVo box in order to use the new feature. However, it may also be usable with an Alexa-enabled smartphone. As to which TiVo series devices are said to support the new Alexa feature, those include TiVo BOLT, TiVo Roamio, TiVo, Premiere, and TiVo Mini series boxes.
