Nvidia debuts expanded Google Home voice control for Shield TV

19 Oct 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

Nvidia has announced that Shield TV now supports deep integration of Google Home voice commands, including the ability to search for content on Netflix, HBO, and other services.

Google Home voice controls

Nvidia Shield TV already supported so-called ”basic controls” via a Google Home speakers. It has now been expanded to support full capabilities.

Using your voice, you can tell a Google Home device to find and play content from Netflix, HBO Now, CBS, Starz, Viki, YouTube TV, and YouTube on Nvidia Shield TV. For example: ”OK Google, watch Ozark on Shield”.

In addition, you can turn on and off Shield, open apps, change volume, show vacation photos on the TV via Shield, and control video playback. Nvidia has published a list of Google Home voice commands that should work on Shield. These are included in the table below.

This type of integration with Google Home devices was already supported on the Chromecast dongle but it has taken some time for Google and partners to fully enable them on Android TV, which is the operating system found in Nvidia Shield as well as TVs from Sony, Philips, TCL, and others.

- ”These new features are rolling out to Shield users this month. If you are eager to try out the features, a restart of your Shield TV will deliver the new features wihin a day,” Nvidia said.
