This means Shield TV can handle requests via Alexa as well as Google Assistant, which Nvidia says is a unique feature of its popular streaming device.
To use Alexa to navigate through TV shows, films, and music, you need to pair your Shield TV with your Amazon Echo via the Alexa app. Once that's done, you can enable the Shield TV skill, and you'll be able to control the streaming device using your voice.
Right now, it's not clear whether this feature will be available on any smart speaker that's Amazon Alexa-enabled like the Sonos One, and it's only available to US customers at this moment in time.
If you haven't bought into the Amazon ecosystem yet and are thinking of buying a Shield TV, Nvidia is offering a special discount - if you purchase a Shield TV from Amazon (opens in new tab) or Best Buy (opens in new tab) for $179.99, you'll receive a free Amazon Echo Dot.
