Voice Command Results

  • Once you have provided a command, there are two ways you could see your results.
    • Single result - associated content screen will be displayed
    • Multiple results - multiple options will be shown on the bottom of the screen with the background darkened to increase visibility of the results strip.
  • You may see text at the top of the results strip - this is called the "smart response." This viewer-friendly language varies depending on your request, and confirms what results are being shown.
