Samsung Improves Gesture-Based Control of TVs at CES

Samsung-control-1213Ahead of CES, Samsung has announced that it has added “finger gesture” technology to its Smart TV line up, which will allow users to change the TV channel, adjust the volume, as well as find and select what they want to watch using  just their fingers. By motioning counterclockwise, they can also go back to a previous screen or stop a video.

Samsung also announced that its previously existing voice control, available in 11 countries, will be expanded to 12 additional markets. The company also says it has improved voice control by focusing on users’ most used functions. For example, now users can change the channel by simply saying the channel number. They can also open apps or websites using shortcuts. Samsung says it has also improved the search function.
