Disable voice remote feature

Is there a way to disable the voice feature on the remote?

Re: Disable voice remote feature

I've never seen any menu setting for controlling the voice function. But if you don't press the mic button it's not listening.

Re: Disable voice remote feature

Thanks for responding atc98092. I went into Settings and it said it was listening. I attempted to find an on/off toggle, but I couldn’t find one. Maybe it’s not actually listening until I hit the mic button on the remote?

Re: Disable voice remote feature

I was always under the impression that the mic button has to be pressed for anything to happen. I don't think it's like an Amazon Echo device that always has a hot mic. If someone knows otherwise, I'd love to hear about it.
