Google Assistant for Android TV launches first on SHIELD TV

NVIDIA_SHIELD_TV_wRemoteThe latest update to the NVIDIA’s Shield TV Version 6.0 has added Google Assistant, making the media player a bit more intelligent. With Google Assistant you can search for movies, TV shows or actors, see your Google Photos, find out what’s on your personal calendar and more.

The Shield TV can also work with other supported Assistant devices, making it useful for controlling other smart devices in your home like lights, audio systems, etc.

Google Assistant can be accessed by pressing the microphone button on the Shield remote or hands-free by saying “Ok Google” within a reasonable distance from the Shield controller.

Some types of voice commands one might use with Google Assistant would be “Play business news,” “Order more popcorn,” or “Play Game of Thrones.”

We recently reviewed the new 2017 Shield TV and found it to be a considerable upgrade from the previous model. The addition of Google Assistant makes it even more desirable. NVIDIA says soon the Shield TV will also function as a SmartThings Hub with paired with a SmartThings Link.

Google says Assistant will soon be available for Sony Bravia TVs. You can find more information on Google Assistant for Android TV on their blog.
