These Smart TVs now support a total of 23 languages.
Starting today, Sony’s line of Bravia Android TVs will now support Arabic voice search as part of its Smart TV experience. This means that you can simply talk to the remote control in Arabic to search for content or, depending on the TV model, speak directly to the TV. Since it’s an Android-based TV, you can use Google Assistant to manage tasks for you and control smart home devices even in Arabic.
Shuichi Mugitani, Head of Marketing, Sony Middle East & Africa, said: “We are proud and delighted to offer our Arabic speaking customers new and innovative ways to experience entertainment. Voice Search helps simplify access to multiple sources of content available on different platforms, with a simple command. The Arabic search feature on Sony Android TVs highlights our commitment to the region and demonstrates how we continue to listen to our customers in delivering optimized solutions and innovations that meet their needs.”
This comes after Sony announced support for the Arabic on-demand platform Shahid on its TV, where new customers will get a 12-month free subscription for the Shahid VIP service. Shahid VIP will also support Arabic voice search for a more personalized experience.
Other languages now supported by Sony Bravia Android TV’s voice include French, Hindi, and Russian. The new Sony Bravia Android TVs are one of the few televisions to support the Dolby Vision HDR format along with AirPlay 2 support so you can easily mirror an iPhone, iPad, or Mac without the need for additional hardware.
