cell phone use as tv voice activated remote control

How do I set-up my cell phone to become a voice activated remote control for newly installed Verizon FIOS triple play?

I wish Verizon FIOS would develop a voice activated remote control device similar to Comcast, Optimum, Dish, DirecTV, etc.

I believe there was a recent forum on using Alexa for doing what you want.

i know Apple TV and Roku have voice control but I don’t believe Fios has any other means to do so at present time.

You can use the FIOS mobile app.

Can't say that I have done it, but it is documented as being there.

Not sure who well it works. I have used the enw Alexa app.

More of a pain IMHO.

I can do most things much faster on remote than via voice control.
