Technology is constantly adapting to meet our needs and in many ways, it functions to make our lives easier, simpler, and better than before. Find out some of the many ways technology can help make your life a breeze.
Makes accessing content easier
With so much content out there, and with a different remote to control each TV or service, it can get difficult to find what you're looking for. But technology provides a solution to this inconvenient problem. For instance, the X1 voice remote allows you to control all of your devices, with just one click or command. With one remote you can change channels, search for shows, get recommendations, and more. You can also continue to watch your favorite programs while you browse shows that are airing on other channels.

Saves you time
Technology can help you cut time on tasks that would otherwise take up a lot of space in your schedule. If you want to avoid heading to the store, purchasing online or through an app can be a convenient way to save time and money. Many stores also offer curbside pickup, which means you can order everything you need and drive up to the store to pick it up. No wait times, no crazy check-out lines, and no navigating through crowded aisles.
Provides a fast and safe way to pay your bill
Instead of heading to the bank, mailing out checks, or staying on calls for hours to try to get your bill paid, just pay online. If you own an Xfinity X1 remote, you can also pay your bill by telling your remote what to do. Simply say "my account", select your current bill, and follow the on-screen prompts to make a payment. It saves you time and makes your life a whole lot easier.
Helps you stay connected with your family
For better or for worse, staying connected with loved ones has never been easier. Whether through social media, text, video or phone calls, technology enables you to be closer to the people you love even if you're not physically nearby. This can be especially important if you have elderly or disabled loved ones who live by themselves. Being just a call, text, or video chat away makes it easier to check-in and can help keep your mind at ease.
Allows you to control your home
Technology can also help you control your home. By pairing your thermostat to Xfinity Home, you can control the temperature inside by telling your remote what to do. If you're ever in need of your WiFi, you can ask your remote to remind you what it is. Simply say "what's my WiFi name" or "show me my WiFi name", and your remote will find the information you're looking for. You can also set the lighting, check on cameras, or lock doors all by speaking into your remote and giving it a command.
