    For basic functions you need to pair the Hopper with Google Assistant on your Android phone. If you have additional Google devices they will be connected through Google Assistant.

    I got one of those voice remotes in the mail and still haven't bothered to open the box. Not worth the bother yet.

    My free voice remote is still in the box. I don't want anything that connects to Google in the house.

    I have two Hopper 2's also, and they sent me one as well. It worked ok, but I prefer the 40.0 remotes so it sits in the box as a spare.

    The voice remote (and Google Assistant) works on the original Hopper. It should work on all of them.
