(Pocket-lint) - Nvidia is to all you to use your voice to control the Nvidia Shield TV device rather than having to rely on a remote control. the company is now rolling out the Google Assistant to Nvidia Shield TV boxes in the UK. You can now say "OK Google" just as you would with any other Google Assistant-enabled device to start playing music, videos, TV shows, movies and games.

As you can see from the image above, your Google Assistant requests appear on screen as you're saying them meaning you can use your hands to do something else. 

Nvidia recently updated the interface of Shield TV with the Shield TV experience upgrade 7.0. It added a new, collection-based home screen that enables you to select popular shows and videos without having to enter individual apps. 

Naturally, everything is customisable and you can pin anything you want to the home screen as well. There's also a "play next" area that enables you to jump right into stuff you've started already if that's your thing. 

Nvidia says that it hopes to have updated all Sheld TV devices in the UK by early next week. 

The Nvidia Shield TV is available at around £180 from Amazon UK. It is also available in the US from Amazon.com and others.
