Hisense — the world’s third-largest TV manufacturer — is starting to preview its 2018 lineup of smart TVs that’ll be announcing at CES this year. The big addition this time around seems to be Amazon’s Alexa smart assistant, which is coming to some existing models, including the 100-inch 4K laser TV that the company announced late last year.

In addition to the usual suite of Alexa features for music playback, smart home controls, and third-party skills, Hisense says that users will be able to directly control their TV’s hardware, using Alexa to do tasks like change inputs or control volume with voice commands.

While the company hasn’t detailed yet which models of its lineup will be getting Alexa integration, expect more details on that news next week at CES. Hisense isn’t the only TV company promising new smart assistant integration for its 2018 models, either — LG has already announced that it’ll be bringing Google Assistant over to its new OLED displays at CES, too.
