Nvidia Shield TV adds a variety of new Google Assistant commands

'Hey Google, set volume to 50 percent on Shield'

Nvidia Shield

Nvidia has published a blog post announcing the Shield TV’s new integration with Google’s Home line of smart speakers.

You can now control the Nvidia Shield through Google Home Voice commands.

All of the commands can be found below:

Basic Commands
“Turn on Shield”
“Turn off Shield”
“Open [name of app] on Shield”

Volume Control
“Set volume to 50 percent on Shield”
“Increase/decrease volume on Shield”
“Mute/unmute volume on Shield”

Playback Features
“Play [name of Netflix, HBO NOW, CBS, Viki, or Starz show] on Shield”
“Play [name of song] on [name of app] on Shield”
“Watch [name of channel] on YouTube TV on Shield”
“Play on YouTube on Shield”
“Pause on Shield”
“Play on Shield”

Photos and Smart Home
“Show me my pictures from Egypt on SHIELD”
“Show me my pictures from last weekend on SHIELD”
“Dim the lights”
“Set the temperature to 72 degrees”

What’s strange here is that some of these commands were already available. The photo albums feature, according to Android Police, and the ability to play YouTube content with your voice, are both older features. Netflix support came out on October 15th as well.

Nvidia says that the feature is rolling out this month, but those who want access to the functionality quicker can restart their Shield TV, resulting in the update showing up within a day. Additionally, Nvidia says the rollout is coming to all Sheild users, but we’ve reached out to the company just to make sure the feature is coming to Canadian users as well.
