EBox churns out more ways to interact with your TV box

Ebox is always working behind the scenes to bring you the newest development our team are constantly working on. We see no need to leave out our low-end devices like the Q-box. This is why we chose the Q-box even though it is low end priced it still packs a high-end punch and can rightly so hold its own with other home automation systems. this post proves that Google Voice Assistant running on Android Kodi TV box can work as a low-cost Google Home. The market is seeing Amazon Echo being promoted and competing against Google home in all manner of ad campaigns. Also, check out our T8 V post and we show that a T8 V TV box could be better than the Google Home in some cases. The one thing the Q-box has in common is the Android operating system version 6.1.

Google Assistant IFTTT

Behind the scenes, Entertainment Box is always working on new ways how to interact with your box as our devices are more than just your tv entertainment system. One of the main apps we have been experimenting with has been the Google Assistant Launcher this has opened many avenues for the voice control from your Q-box.Google assistant and Google assist are apps that allow a vast amount of interaction with stand-alone applications. Applications such as Telegram allow you to send a message and also customise the commands you use to activate it. IFTTT is another stand-alone app for Google assistant. We also cover IFTT in our: Create a custom Google Assistant IFTTT recipe, applet for Google Home, Android TV Box post. This will allow you to create custom voice commands to automate your new smart home.

Turn your TV box into your very own Google Voice Assistant

Google assistant has really taken over from Google now which we all know by one of our recent posts, Voice Control of a smart box turned out to allow you basic voice control of your device. Google now allowed you to open apps in your Q-box even as far as sending a short email down to picking a song from your favourite music app. Be prepared to be blown away with Google Assistant and what it can do for your Q-box. As the Q-box is powered by Android 6.0 it means the Q-box measures up to the standard requirements needed to run Google assistant. The technology that operates Google home is the very same Google assistant technology. If you have ever seen the advertisements for Google home this will give you some idea what you can command your Q-box to do using voice commands.

Q-box has a sense of humor using Google Voice Assistant, Laugh’s at Google Home Speaker as it matches capabilities 

All the usual applications from Google can be used with Google Assistant turning your Q-box into a home automation hub. We have been able to ask for jokes to be told they are maybe not the funniest but they were jokes relayed to us from a female voice with a calm tone. Looking through the list of available options is quite daunting and too much to relay back our advice on this would be to check this out for yourselves.

EBox playtime as team works on projects to bring users Google Home theme using A TV box

Entertainment Box has had great fun in putting together this post for you. And we know that our users shall too. We feel that in this category rather than EBox giving you the method. We used step by step it was better to give you just the basic start tools. This will allow users to build up their own setup and tailor the apps. That most to suit their individual needs. The S77-Pro remote is the perfect choice for use with our Q-box as it has everything you shall need. Not only does it have the Microphone but full Qwerty Keyboard for any web address that you need to input.

Final thoughts

The staff here at Ebox has had great fun experimenting with the Q-box. Sending each other text messages e-mails and open up chats on selected apps. We trust our customers shall have the same experience when they set up their Q-box. As it is overwhelming how far the Q-box responds to all the tasks we put it through.
