TV App Agency has launched an Absolute Radio app for Samsung Smart TVs, which enables users to control their TV using their voice. The app, which gives users access to the full range of Absolute Radio Network stations, can be controlled – including playing, pausing, and changing channel – using voice commands.
“Absolute Radio continues to pioneer the digital market” said Paul Brown, Absolute Radio’s technology director. “Our ambition to grow the brand has been clear with our strong mobile strategy and now with our new Smart TV apps we’re adding to this. The convergence of Smart TV with control through the mobile and via voice simply underscores our dedication to providing ease of use for consumers. At Absolute Radio, we give our listeners the control.”
The app also displays Now Playing information, along with artwork for the track, and the current presenter’s Twitter feed. It also features marketing banners featuring QR codes which can be scanned by smartphone users to find out more.
