Google Assistant for Android TV launches first on SHIELD TV

Nvidia's integration of Google Assistant was first revealed way back in January, but the feature was announced as something that would be coming later.

This particular update would allow you wake up your NVIDIA Android TV by saying the magic word "OK Google" on the sensitive microphones of the controller.

Besides, Google Assistant will also be able to display information about your shows such as the cast without interfering with the playback. Google Assistant on the Shield TV has a new visual design and is capable of doing much more than what Voice Search could.
