Samsung TV smart remote voice commands


Novice Member
Hi all,

I know there is some (limited) on-screen info on voice commands (by pressing microphone button once), but would find it helpful for a definitive list of what can and can't be done. So far, I've discovered the following, but would welcome any additions. For reference, I recently set up a UE65KS9000 series with a Sky box for my visually impaired neighbour, who is keen to use the voice interaction on the smart remote.

"volume up/down" - increases/decreases volume by 1 level
"volume up 20" - increases volume by 20 levels
"volume 50" - sets volume to level 50
"channel 115" - changes to channel 115
"BBC one" - doesn't work, this is a shame!
"Channel BBC one" - doesn't work
"pause" - pauses live TV, Netflix and Youtube
"play" - resumes play on TV, Netflix and Youtube
"stop" - stops a Youtube video and displays Youtube Home screen
"xxxx" - where xxx is any search term (e.g. "avforums"), opens a screen of Youtube search results
