What is


 Josh is a voice-controlled home automation system.

Like Siri or Google Now, the Josh programming language is built to support natural language voice commands. This includes greetings, questions, instructions, and more. Further, Josh is built to control and connect any “smart” device, from any device.


This integration enables Hopper DVR owners to control the satellite TV service throughout the home using natural language voice commands to navigate the program guide, select channels by number or name, access recording features, and play/pause or fast-forward/rewind selected content, among other things.
