NVIDIA Shield TV Gets Google Assistant

NVIDIA Shield TV Gets Google Assistant

The voice assistant will be rolled out to Sony Bravia TVs running Android in the coming months.

Since the Nvidia Shield TV hit the market in 2015, Google Assistant has been noticeably absent from the Android-powered device.

NVIDIA is rolling out software update version 6.0 for the Shield TV set-top box today.

Anyway, if you are a SHIELD TV owner and haven't updated to the latest system version. You'll hear the familiar activation noise and you're ready to command Assistant to do your bidding. In either case it has finally started arriving now and after what has been a lengthy wait since Google Assistant was first announced for Android TV back in January of this year - during CES. It's the thinner wand-like device that comes with a less expensive bundle, or with the game controller on a more expensive option. Both the controller and the remote have a dedicated mic button to give commands to the digital assistant.

It can cast audio to the Google Home or other Google Cast speakers, and you can use it to adjust the volume of your TV or play, fast-forward, and skip a scene while you're watching. Just like the voice commands we feed to the Google Assistant on our smartphones.

We had not even completely solved the problem of Bangladeshi intrusion when a problem of Myanmar has been heaped on us. In fact, violence of any form is. "Crores of people get jobs or employments through these sectors", he said.

"Ask it questions. Tell it to do things".

It's not just tuned for entertainment, mind, Google Assistant will present you with a news feed on current events, and it's also plugged into you calendar, so you can check out your schedule on the big screen and from the comfort of your sofa. Google Assistant can play a variety of content like movies, TV shows, and YouTube clips. Google Music, etc. If you don't know what video or music you're looking for, you can ask it to "show me movies about _" or "play music from _". It also supports YouTube Music, Google Play Music, Spotify, and Pandora.

These include "Play Game of Thrones", "Play business news", "Talk to Fitstar", "what's on my agenda for today?', and "Turn off".

The same goes for other actions which instead of doing what you want it to do, Assistant returns YouTube video links related to what you asked. That means you can just say the magic words when nearby those control devices to wake up your Nvidia Shield TV and issue voice commands directly to Assistant, the way you would with a Google Home or with your Pixel smartphone.
