MECOOL’s brand-new KM8 TV Box features Google Voice Search with a Bluetooth remote control.

One of the interesting features of this TV Box is the voice search.

It has both a listen and research function. All you have to do is ask. Speak to the voice remote control and TV Box searches for what you want.

The TV Box is equipped with IR remote control with voice search button (coloured circles), so by pressing the button, you can output voice commands.

Speaking into the voice remote control, the TV Box will search your action movies, TV series, today’s weather, or the latest tech news. You will get what you want by speaking to your TV through your remote control.

If you need to control the TV Box through a smartphone, you can use the Android TV Remote Control app.

This is an Adroid TV Box with official Google Android TV Operating System (OS), not Android Version OS.

We want to say thanks to GearBest store for sending us a MECOOL KM8 TV Box with Voice Remote to review.

The KM8 TV Box supports Chromecast, making it easy to stream your photo albums, music playlists, and videos from your smartphone, tablet or laptop right to your TV.

The TV Box supports 4K Ultra HD resolution and the latest HDR standard (high dynamic range) with much more realistic colours and more vibrant images. We were able to play Asphalt 9 game on the device and the quality of the resolution was 4K.

Unfortunately, the KM8 TV Box is not compatible with the Netflix Android TV app (This version of Netflix app is not compatible (-13)). Netflix is not working either in the app or via Chromecast.

This is a big minus for this TV Box and the fact that my device had frequent “wifi disconnected” messages.

It is not an innovative box.

The only thing that stands out is the removable antenna it brings. On the front it has the Dolby Digital logo and a power button. This button also has the function of LED. On the back we have the analog video-audio output connection, the ethernet port, the HDMI connector, the RP-SMA connector of the WiFi antenna and the power connector.

Our experience with the MECOOL KM8 TV Box was great, except the negative that you can’t watch Netflix on this device.

Overall it’s a powerful device, which is affordable to buy.

I was happy that I could download DStv Now and able to stream my favourite Mzamsi Magic and 1Magic TV series.

You can buy the device for R888.80 ($61.23) at GearBest and get a 18% discount on the original price.
