Many voice-activated devices and virtual assistants can be used to control Netflix.
Voice-activated devices have a button on the remote control for voice commands.
To use a voice command:
Press the microphone button on the remote
When the device is listening, say a supported voice command.
If you don't know if your device can be voice-activated, check with the manufacturer.
Virtual assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, Google Assistant, and Samsung Bixby can also be used with Netflix.
To use voice controls:
Say the assistant's "wake word" to activate it. Some devices have a button to activate the assistant without the wake word.
When the assistant is listening, say a supported voice command such as, "Hi Bixby, launch Netflix," or "Hey Siri, open Netflix."
Actions that can be done by voice command are:
Open Netflix. Say "Launch Netflix" or "Open Netflix."
Search or browse. We recommend adding "on Netflix" when searching, browsing, or playing a TV show or movie.
To browse by category, director, or actor, follow these examples:
"Show me comedies on Netflix"
"Find movies by Steven Spielberg on Netflix"
"Show me movies with Tom Cruise on Netflix"
To search for a specific title, season, or episode:
"Find Bird Box on Netflix."
"Show me Stranger Things on Netflix"
Play a TV show or movie. Tell your device the name of the show or movie you want to watch, for example, "Play The Irishman on Netflix."
Control playback . To pause the TV show or movie you're watching, say "Pause." You can also use other controls like "play," "fast forward," and "rewind."
