You can also control the SHIELD from other Assistant devices, but it doesn't have all the standard Chromecast features. NVIDIA says "deeper integration" with Google Home is rolling out now, which may help to smooth out some inconsistencies.

You can now ask an Assistant speaker to play Netflix on Android TV

Android TV devices are supposed to have all the functionality of a Chromecast, since they also act as Cast targets. However, there are still some quirks that remained unresolved.

[Update: LG support details] Google Assistant for TV learns more languages

AI is not limited to simply phones and speakers anymore as TV manufacturers continue to add extra capabilities to their flatscreens. Smart TVs are essentially mini computers running operating systems such as Tizen, webOS, and of course Android TV. Google has made it possible for manufacturers to integrate Google Assistant into their products even if they don’t use Android TV, something LG has been doing this year.

[Deal Alert] Google Nexus Player falls to $33 on eBay

The Nexus Player is quite old at this point — after all, it has "Nexus" in its name — but it still has its fans. That's in spite of a sleeping bug from late last year, no more OS or security updates, and most recently and worryingly, a large batch randomly dying. But the units being offered today for $33 on eBay are brand new and we suspect that won't be happening again soon.

A soundbar, an Android TV box, and a Google Assistant speaker. A soundbar, an Android TV box... are you getting it?
