Nvidia Shield har fået Google Assistant, SmartThings, 360-graders YouTube mm.

29 Sep 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

Den seneste softwareopdatering til Nvidia Shield indeholder bl.a. Google Assistant, 360-graders YouTube og styring af det forbundne hjem via SmartThings-protokollen. Flere funktioner kræver dog, at du indstiller boksen til USA.

Google Assistant på dit TV

Nvidia Shield er den første Android TV-baserede enhed, som får Google Assistant. Stemmesystemet gør det muligt at stille spørgsmål og søge efter indhold via en mikrofon i fjernbetjeningen eller håndfrit vha. spilcontrolleren fra Nvidia.

- ”Shield TV just became the world’s first hands-free streaming device. With the new Shield controller nearby, you can say “OK Google” or “Hey Google” to control your TV and your home without picking up a remote. Google Assistant is at your command, hands-free,” sagde Nvidia.

Før du når så langt, skal du dog være opmærksom på, at Assistant på tv-skærmen kun snakker amerikansk og derfor indtil videre er forbeholdt USA. Du skal således opsætte din Shield-boks til engelsk for at gøre brug af systemet. Ellers får du Googles mere simple stemmesystem, som har været tilgængeligt i Android TV i flere år.

For at bruge Assistant håndfrit kræves en 2017-spilcontroller fra Nvidia, da denne har en langtrækkende mikrofon. Hver app-udvikler skal implementere support, hvorfor det pt. virker med Netflix og YouTube, foruden amerikanske HBO Now. Du kan bl.a. sige: “Show me popular Netflix shows”.

Google Assistant tilføjes desuden på Philips Android TV senere på efteråret samt på Sony Android TV engang i fremtiden.



Andre nye funktioner

Softwareopdateringen byder ydermere på SmartThings, som er Samsungs platform for det forbundne hjem.

- ”With the SmartThings Link, Shield TV becomes the first streamer to integrate SmartThings hub. This makes it the brain of your connected home. Control hundreds of smart devices around your home with automated routines and voice control. Coming soon,” fremgår det af udgivelsesnoten.

SmartThings app’en udgives ”inden længe” i USA. Systemet virker også i Danmark, så det er uklart, hvorfor Nvidia begrænser den til en enkelt region.

Afslutningsvis fremhæver Nvidia funktioner såsom 360-graders video fra YouTube, en YouTube Kids app (findes ikke i Danmark) og fejlrettelser. Vi har inkluderet det hele i tabellen herunder.
