What's New• Updated for iPhone 5
• Persistent access to the XFINITY and Exit buttons
• Easier access to the Key Pad and Playback Controls
• Voice commands to control the TV
App DescriptionDesigned exclusively for XFINITY TV on the X1 Platform, the X1 Remote lets XFINITY TV customers use their iPhones to control their TVs like never before. The app is a replacement for the remote, but better. Customers can navigate XFINITY On Demand, search for programs, and tune to content without their actual remote. Newly added is the experimental feature that allows you to issue voice commands to your TV.
• Tap the mic and say what you are looking for, without typing. See results appear on your TV immediately.
• Search for shows, movies, sports teams and channels using voice commands, e.g. “Find Big Bang Theory” or “When are the Sixers playing?”.
• Browse XFINITY On Demand content by asking for a specific genre or network, e.g. “Show me all NBC On Demand” or “Do you have any funny movies”.
• Get recommendations for what to watch by asking for “More like this” or “What should I watch?” or “What’s on tonight at 8?”.
• Suggestions for what to say can be found within Help.
