Vizio introduced a new feature in its upcoming series of SmartCast TV devices called the Vizio Voice system. It comes with a brand-new push-to-talk Bluetooth voice-controlled remote with a built-in microphone. The virtual-assistant functionality has been around some years back for other TV and set-top box manufacturers. It’s just now that Vizio has joined the bandwagon offering a voice-activated streaming experience.
What is Vizio Voice System
Vizio Voice will allow users to update settings on their TV, find channels or search for new shows, as well as open apps. There are a host of other functionalities that you can do with the new Bluetooth clicker using voice commands.
The new voice system from Vizio supports natural language queries. Users can build upon search results without the need to say the entire query again. Vizio Voice directly competes with industry-leaders Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa which are being utilized and integrated into the streaming devices produced by brands such as Sony, LG, TCL, Samsung, and HiSense.
Prior to the release of the Vizio Voice system, Vizio smart TVs can be paired to Siri or connected to a Google or Amazon smart speaker so the users can use a few voice commands. Today, the system is now built right into your Vizio TV with a long list of voice commands you can use. The SmartCast mobile app on your Android phone or iOS device works hand-in-hand with Vizio Voice for a smoother response.
How to Get a Vizio SmartCast TV with Vizio Voice Bluetooth Remote Control
If you simply want to get your hands onto the new Bluetooth voice-control remote, apparently, you are not in luck, as Vizio is not selling the new clicker on its own. You need to get the latest 2021 models and up of Vizio TVs to avail of the new remote. Older models that are still on sale will not get the new voice remote.

Almost all upcoming TV models including Series V, M, and P TVs will get the new Vizio Voice remote with the exception of the D-series which are Vizio’s entry-level offering.
