Nvidia Shield gets Amazon video, improved gaming and Google Assistant

Media Streamers
Hey everybody, you're looking at the NVIDIA Shield available now for pre-order for 200 bucks, an update of one of our most powerful streaming devices that we tested at CNET. They've added a lot of improvements and one of the biggest is Amazon Video. That's right, the new NVIDIA Shield works with the latest Amazon Video app, so you get access To everything you have in Prime subscription, you also get 4K in HDR video from Amazon. That's a big new addition of the platform. The device also has a new integration with Google Assistant. If you have the game controller on the table in front of you, you don't don't even need to hold up to your mouth or press a button. You can just say, okay Google and get all of this integration for Google Home right from the device itself, so you don't even need the separate Google Home controller Controller. Other apps supported on the device include Netflix with HK and HDR, Google Play Movies and TV with 4K, VuDu, Sony PlayStation View, and plenty of other apps. Of course, [UNKNOWN] products, you get plenty of support for games too. Nvidia's streaming service GeForce NOW has been improved so you get better resolution. On the games and better frame rates, you'll also get an integration of all the games in one place. There's basically just an Nvidia gaming app where you can get access to not only those game stream games if you're a subscriber, you can also get apps for example from Google Play store, that are optimized for the Nvidia Shield to play even better. If you have an Nvidia equipped PC also around the house, you can also stream from that PC To the shield itself. You can get integration which shields big picture mode, which is a really cool feature that they added again this year. Unlike the previous version, this shield does include both the controller in the box, as well as a little remote control. So you have all those things included for the $200 price. They say they've improved the game controller. They've added haptic feedback, and of course it has that new ability to listen via Google Home. Shield will also get the latest version of the YouTube app which involves 360 video. So you can actually use the game controller sticks to navigate that 360 video. It's a really cool experience on the big screen. In conjunction with the Google Assistant functionality Nvidia's gonna be launching a $50 device called the Nvidia Spot. This is a little microphone that's plug in the wall to extend your voice always listening functionality as you can talk into some of the Google assistant pretty much anywhere in the house. So most of the features that I've just described is available now in the box ships but some of them are going to be available in the coming months especially Google assistant is also going to be rolling out more features and functionalities throughout the rest of the year. That's a quick look at the human video shield for 200 bucks available for pre order now.
