Android TV

Google Assistant was first unveiled in 2016, and it is currently available on a limited number of products, including Pixel phones, Google Home, and the Google Allo app. However, that is about change in the coming months. Google has announced that the Assistant will make its way to more devices this year, including Android TVs, smartwatches, and car infotainment systems.

The Nvidia Shield TV, which was announced earlier today, will be the first Android TV-based device to feature Google Assistant. In the coming months, the Assistant will be rolled out to more Android TVs based on Marshmallow or Nougat. The AirTV Player, Sharp Aquos lineup, Sony’s Bravia series of Android TVs, Xiaomi Mi Box, and more products will get access to Google Assistant in the coming months.

Users would be able to search for content, get answers to their queries, get directions, and even control their smart home products like Samsung SmartThings using voice commands. The company has also announced that the Assistant will make way to Android Wear 2.0-based smartwatches and Android Auto-based car infotainment systems.
