Google has added support for three new device categories, TV’s, media remotes and set-top boxes.
You might be asking, but I thought Google Assistant was already on those types of devices? Well, you are right, but up until now Google Assistant has only been on Android TV devices and Chromecasts. Now Google is offering development tools to let 3rd party OEM’s integrate Google Assistant themselves.
Google Assistant would do what you would expect on those 3 new device types, like volume control, play/pause, skip and switch between TV apps.
