Samsung Will Drop Google Assistant Access From Its Smart Tvs

Out of the plethora of Samsung Gadgets, its Smart TV offers multiple features to enhance the watching experience as per convenience; for instance, Voice Assistants, PC Mode, Kids TV, New Content Guide, Two-Way Sharing, Google Assistant, & many more. 

Now Samsung has officially confirmed that it will soon drop the Google Assistant access facility for its smart TVs, and this change will come into existence from 1st March 2024. 

The reason behind this sudden change is Google’s new policy that its Assistant will no longer be available on Samsung TVs. Once the Smart TVs lose access to Google Assistant, people will have the best option for those looking to control their Samsung TVs with just the voice of Google Assistant, which has been quite popular among users. 

The users who prefer Google Assistant and do not want to give up on controlling the power of their Samsung smart TVs along with their voice will have the rest of the other features for their convenience, which they can try after 1st March. 

Bixby and Amazon Alexa will permit users to control their TVs with their voice. The noticeable fact is that Bixby & Amazon Alexa are only available on some of the selected models from 2020 through 2023 TVs, which are as follows – 

  • All 2022 Smart TVs
  • All 2021 Smart TVs
  • 2020 8K & 4K QLED TVs
  • 2020 Crystal UHD TVs
  • 2020 Lifestyle TVs – Frame, Serif, Terrace, and Sero. 

However, the brand offers another option to fulfil the Google Assistant place through the SmartThings app, which will permit users to control their TVs directly from their phones. With this new SmartThings, the smartphone will turn into a remote, but which is not pretty similar to Bixby or Alexa.
