Voice Control your EBox using OK Google Android voice commands

Google seem to have been stepping up their game with the voice interaction and there is quite a lot of talks going on in the forums now. You should keep up to date with voice interaction as it is far from dead but do not worry if you do not have the time as EBox follows everything closely and will keep you up to date.

Google Voice Control responds best on Android 6.0 or above

We have chosen the Google and Google now App to focus on as it works the best with our devices and responds to the user quite well. You can use the app in 5 different languages at once and has 100s of voice commands. Although it will depend on your device. Google now can be used with the Q-box and Q-box lite version also with our T8 V. These devices run on Android 6 and we have found it the most stable and responsive to date. Steps are in progress to find either alternative apps or support for our other devices that are not performing so well with voice.

This has more to do with microphone permissions within Android powered systems that are running under Android 6.0. Google Now originally released with Android 4.4 especially for the mobile phone industry as these already have a microphone installed.

New S77 Pro remote keyboard

If you want to use Google Now with your EBox then you will need to install a microphone or you can use the New S77 Pro-remote. We stock the latest version of the New S77 Pro-remote which is not only back-lit but also has a microphone button to activate the built-in microphone. You can use it with applications such as a voice memo or a dictation application. As these devices are more than capable of just being your media streaming device

EBox New S77 Pro remote leads the way Android operated devices

Using the Google Now App does not mean that you can install this and then command every action that you do within your device. However, it does make a great party piece. You will be able to open your EBMC or Kodi app. But you will not be able to go any further with this voice action other than to a file in your library once opened. The reason Kodi is limited in voice is there has not been any development within its system to allow this. However, this is due to change when Kodi 18 (Leia) is released as the developers have enabled voice and search integration which opens many doors for the open sourced media player.

Here we have put together a list of Google settings to use

  • Once you have installed your apps it’s a good idea to go to settings and allow all permissions for these to work best.
  • Tap . It’s at the top left corner of the screen.
  • Now Tap Settings.
  • Tap Voice.
  • Tap OK Google detection.
  • From the Google app switch to the On position. The switch will turn blue, which indicates that voice commands are enabled
  • Press the Home button  This will bring you back to the home screen.
  • Say “OK Google” into the microphone. The word “Listening…” will appear on the screen

Entertainment Box Demonstrate how fast they process information and enhance user experience

As we said earlier in this post we referred to how much Entertainment Box has the finger on the pulse when it comes to bringing you first-hand knowledge. We also made a comment of how Kodi had yet to catch up in the voice integration. So, as we have been preparing all this help for you to follow. Koying has gone and released his latest version of SPMC 16.7.0 and you can find all links to the various versions here for SPMC. You can also use our latest EBMC based on SPMC 16.7.0

EBMC/Kodi has voice search! can you can use voice search in EBMC/Kodi

Yes, it possible to use voice search in EBMC/Kodi. Koying has beaten Kodi to the finish line on releasing voice integration within his version of the open sourced media player also Known as Kodi. Koying known for his forked version of Kodi was the Android development part of the Kodi team before venturing off with his own version of Kodi called SPMC. Entertainment Box has their own build of Kodi and SPMC called EBox MC or EBMC. You can download the latest version of Kodi EBMC and SPMC here.

Final thoughts are,  the future sounds good for voice integration from Android developers

If you are thinking about buying a Google Home, Amazon Echo or a Siri Speaker and have an EBox TV box then you need to try this out first. The EBox can perform most of the same tasks including integrating as a connected home device? Using an EBox TV box instead of a Google home, Amazon Echo or a Siri Speaker has its own benefits. It is possible to use voice commands to search YouTube or Netflix for music or movies then play your choice directly on a TV. If you have a Nest thermostat it is easy to change the temper of your home with one simple command! “Set the temperature to 80 degrees”. The best bit is most people already have an EBox or a TV Box running on at least Android 6.0.

Smart TV or Smart Box

Smart TV or smart box you choose

We take a look at if you should get a smart TV or smart box, and what is the difference between them.

This guide will help you decide if you need to buy a new smart TV or a smart box.

What is a Smart TV?

 

Originally called “connected TVs,” these sets were later branded by companies such as Panasonic and Samsung as “smart TVs.” The term has come to denote any television that can be connected to the Internet to access streaming media services and that can run entertainment apps, such as on-demand video-rental services, Internet music stations and Web browsers.

What is a Smart Box?

In the last few years has seen a big surge in usage and sales of Smart boxes or media TV Boxes they are (usually) compact little devices you connect to your TV or projector. These boxes can be used for gaming or to stream media from either local storage or from internet services such as Netflix, YouTube or BBC iPlayer. As the years have gone by, technological advances have meant that these dedicated media players are now able to playback Ultra HD 4K video – as well as 3D – and some are even capable of hi-res audio playback too.

How does a Smart TV compare to Smart Box?

Advances in chipset manufacturing have also meant media streaming Smart Boxes now run on more operating systems than ever, including Android, Windows, Linux and Apple’s new TVOS which is based on their, wildly successful, mobile operating system, iOS. In fact, if you own a smartphone or tablet you will already have a good idea of what these things can do but instead of swiping or tapping on a small screen, you’ll be controlling the apps using a TV style remote. Also, If you already own (and use) a Smart TV at home, you will be familiar with a lot of the features a streaming media device can provide but there can be advantages in a dedicated player.

 

Do I need a Smart TV?

You do not need a smart TV to get streaming Netflix movies or YouTube videos on your screen. Many smart boxes can stream those services and more to an HDTV. The leading models are The EBox T8,  Amazon, Apple, Minix with cheaper versions like the EBox H5, EBox M9

As an example, the EBox H5, just £35, delivers thousands apps. You have 8gb of built in memory (which is can be increased via an SD card). USB ports and a easy custom menu interface. Best of all though, as it’s on an Android operating system you get all the benefits that being on Android brings you. So if you don’t need to buy a new TV but want smart-TV services, a separate, inexpensive Smart box is the prudent choice. In addition, smart boxes, such as the EBox T8, are able to stream 4K content.

If you’re an Apple household and want your iTunes collection on the big screen, only the Apple TV  4 can deliver that. No smart TVs have an app for iTunes. The latest iteration of Apple TV and includes Siri support for finding programs. However, it does not offer 4K ultra-HD support and has a limited number of streaming services.

Smart TV vs Smart box

As more and more people buy smart TV’s they are starting to realise they are not that smart at all. Nearly every smart-TV maker uses different software and a different graphical presentation. Some companies install different operating systems and interfaces on their low-end versus their high-end sets. The manufacturers also offer different assortments of online services and apps. These smart TV’s are no match for the something like the T8 smart box with an Octa Core GPU running @600MHz.

Yes you are better off with a Smart Box

Looking for a new TV, go ahead and buy a smart TV if you want one. In fact, it may be hard to avoid buying a smart TV today. Even if you do not like the smart TV features of your new TV, you can always add a smart box to the mix later.

Finally, If you have a TV you’re happy with, then save your money and just buy a smart box. Unless the display technology itself has fallen way behind (i.e. if you’re getting 720p instead of full HD or 4K). There’s no reason you must buy a new smart TV as they don’t do anything a regular TV plus a smart box can’t do.

Each Android TV box has its own specific set of software, called the firmware. Like any piece of technology, it’s important to keep it updated. Android TV boxes usually come with the latest firmware versions that are available. The trouble is, that firmware can become out of date as fast as you can say “Google Update.”

 

 

Firmware is what is needed in most electronic devices today. But what is it exactly and what makes it so crucial for products to run smoothly?

For starters, firmware is essentially the programming needed for certain devices to perform their designed tasks.

Unlike software, we don’t use firmware to perform specific activities on devices, but instead use it for their main functions.

Because of this, firmware updates are occasionally needed to make sure the device operates the way it should, as bugs are fixed and programs are altered for consumer benefits.
