Siri now can control an Apple television after the developer Hjalti Jakbsson has authored a Plex plugin for Siri Proxy that gives you a glimpse at how Apple’s rumored television might work.

Ever since Steve Jobs told Walter Isaacson that he ‘finally cracked’ the solution to an easy to use, integrated television set, analysts have been predicting that Siri voice control is the answer to revolutionizing the TV. 

Thanks to a new plugin written by Jakobsson for the Plex media server we can get an idea of how convenient a voice controlled television would be. 

People who wants to know more about Siri Proxy: 

Siri Proxy is a proxy server for Apple’s Siri “assistant.” The idea is to allow for the creation of custom handlers for different actions. This can allow developers to easily add functionality to Siri.

The main example I provide is a plugin to control my thermostat with Siri. It responds to commands such as, “What’s the status of the thermostat?”, or “Set the thermostat to 68 degrees”, or even “What’s the inside temperature?”
