The Google Assistant is making its way to Android TV.
In the coming months, the Google Assistant on Android TV will come to the NVIDIA SHIELD, along with all Android TVs in the US running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or Android 7.0 Nougat, such as the AirTV Player, Sharp Auos, Sony Bravia, Xiaomi Mi Box and more.

Google is planning on making Google Assistant available on Android TV in the coming months. As part of an upcoming update on supported TVs and set-top boxes powered by Android TV, users will now be able to ask the Google Assistant for help so they can enjoy the content they love, faster than ever, on their screens in their homes.

In the coming months, the Google Assistant on Android TV will come to the NVIDIA SHIELD, along with all Android TVs in the US running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or Android 7.0 Nougat, such as the AirTV Player, Sharp Auos, Sony Bravia, Xiaomi Mi Box and more. And once available, the NVIDIA SHIELD will be the first TV device to offer a hands-free Assistant experience – so “Dim the lights” will only be an “Ok Google” away.

 

Over time, users will also see the Assistant come to their other new surfaces like smartwatches running Android Wear 2.0, Android-powered in-car infotainment systems and other types of devices through the Embedded Google Assistant SDK.

Last month, the search giant announced Actions on Google – a developer platform for the Google Assistant. Since then, the company has had a number of services release new and interesting ways for Google Home users to have a conversation with them – from meditating with Headspace to getting things done in the kitchen with Food Network.

 

Moreover, at the CES this week, users can expect a handful of other partners including Diamler and Hyundai announcing their integration with Google Assistant and Google Home.
