Dish reps already said voice search was not reverting back to the previous version.
Some of the Changes Dish makes are definitely not for the better, but they just refuse to go back.
Changing to this forium and dropping the old one is just one example.
Once they make the change they just stick their heads in the ground and refuse to see how bad their decision is.
We partnered with Google because they take privacy concerns as seriously as we do here at DISH. Their platform allowed us the best technology, quickly and safely. We do however appreciate your feedback.
they never said it was a privacy issue. that is most customers concern but the largest problem with the google assistant intergration is that say I want to see an NFL game so I state as I use to with the old voice commands show me the NFL game and the voice remote showed all the channels that had games on it and I choose one. nowwith the Google assistant you ask that exact same question the same way and what we get as a customer is a bunch of youtube video links and when we tell the google assistant that it is wrong it trys again and this time it shows us the Wikipedia page for the NFL again the customer tells the google assistant it is wrong and rinse repeat it never show the Dish Network Guide and the channels that the NFL or what ever term searched for. this is just plain poor customer service we as customers have a high expectation when it comes to DISH network and in recent years that trust has been beaten down and this for most was the last straw. on the other hand most of us already know that google only really cares about the advertising money it can make from any of its endevors and you at DISH network should have already known that as well.
Hey Genes33, have you tried saying "on DISH" after what you're looking for? This helps refine the search.
Any updates of when Dish Network Corporation (DNC) will allow us to use the voice remote without Google Assistant? Ever since DNC took this service away from us, we have not been compensated or given any real reason why they went from an operational good voice-activated remote, to a defective YouTube remote.
Supposedly our concerns have been upwardly reported to management, but we only get Jason replies. Hey Jason, how about posting something here from corporate (DNC). Millions of us yell F-Google. DNC knew this. DNC forced this on us without notification. DNC knows that GOOG takes our privacy with $$$ return. DNC does not care about the user.
Kimberly, you cannot be serious? Google is a data eating monster, they only pretend to care about privacy when in front of congress or caught in the act. They are one of the least Trustworty compnies I am aware of. Also, the darn thing does not work, it never has worked for me, it is totally useless in my opinion.
