    Before you start

    What is Google Assistant?

    Meet your Google Assistant: it’s your own personal Google, always ready to help, and is now available on Android TV™ and Google TV™ devices. With Google Assistant built-in, you can ask your Google Assistant to check the score of your favorite team, control your TV, dim the lights, and more - using just your voice.

    Note: To check the type of your TV, refer to the How to check if your BRAVIA TV is a Google TV, Android TV, or other TV article.

    To learn more about what Google Assistant can do, you can ask it "What can you do?", read how to use Google Assistant on Android TV, or watch the video.
