Through initiatives that will open new pathways of content discovery and consumption, exploration into this brave new world introduces a whole new level of convenience, ease-of-use, accessibility, and delight.

The input method is a limited set of buttons that require the user to translate what they want into a much simpler set of instructions for devices to interpret. In an era with Smart TVs where convenience sets the pace, the home assistance device is essentially the new smart remote control.
