How to connect your Samsung smart TV to Alexa

Knowing how to connect your Samsung smart TV to Alexa means that you can execute voice commands using an assistant other than Bixby.

Alexa settings on Samsung Smart TVs depend on when and how the TV was made. The best Samsung TVs in 2020 and 2021 have built-in options for remote access or hands-free access. You can do the same with 2022TV. However, older Samsung smart TVs must first be paired with an Alexa device to send commands (you can get inspiration from choosing the best Alexa speakers or the best Alexa-enabled devices).

The features provided also depend on the model. The new TV has a wider range of features, but the 2018 and 2019 models mentioned here are more limited. This means that Samsung’s Bixby is easier to use for older TVs.

If you want to add Alexa functionality to your Samsung smart TV, you can do it in the following ways: For more information on basic setup, configuration, and features, check out our Samsung SmartTV Usage Guide.

Samsung’s new smart TV is powered by Alexa

As already mentioned, if you have a new Samsung TV model like the one on our best TV list, Alexa is probably already built in.

If you’re not sure if your TV is included, here’s a list of compatible TVs.

  • All 2021 and 2022 smart TV models
  • 2020Q LED 8K and 4K TV
  • Frame, dialogue, cello, terrace 2020 TV
  • Crystal UHD TV after 2020TU8000

You don’t need these TVs and paired smart speakers because you can use a remote microphone to access all the Alexa skills and voice interactions you’re used to.

This includes checking weather and asking questions, as well as TV-centric actions such as changing channels and searching for movies.

For information on how to set up Amazon Voice Assistant on your new Samsung smart TV, see our guide on how to connect your Samsung TV to Alexa. (If you’re a Google fan, see how to connect Samsung TV to the Google Assistant.)

The advice below is for older Samsung smart TVs that don’t have this feature built in, but you can connect to your Amazon smart speakers for very basic voice control.

How to connect your Samsung smart TV to Alexa

Knowing how to connect your Samsung smart TV to Alexa means you can use an assistant other than Bixby to carry out verbal commands.
Setting up Alexa on your Samsung smart TV will depend on when your TV was made as to how you make this work. The best Samsung TVs from 2020 and 2021 shipped with the option built-in, for access either via the remote or hands-free, and 2022 TVs will follow suit. However, older Samsung smart TVs will need to pair with an Alexa device first (you can get inspiration from our picks of the best Alexa speakers or best Alexa compatible devices), to send commands.
The functionality on offer will also vary depending on your model. Newer TVs have a wider selection of capabilities, while the 2018 and 2019 models mentioned here are more limited. That means for those older TVs, Samsung’s Bixby offers more usability.
