Then select “Voice Reminders” under Reminders settings; this will be where all of your reminder settings live. Select “Enable Voice Reminder” so that it turns green the next time we talk about reminders!


Voice controls are a great feature on Samsung TVs, but you can turn them off if you prefer. You might not need to use them all the time and this will save on power or battery life. The best part about this is that it’s easy to do with just one button on your remote control!
