Today Nvidia announced that you can now use Alexa to control your Nvidia Shield.

“Comfortably holding the crown as the most open streaming platform, SHIELD gives you more of what you want than any streaming media device. It’s the streamer with access to more of your music, movies and TV shows from multiple ecosystems. Not to mention the widest range of 4K content.” Nvidia said in a press statement sent to Cord Cutters News. “That now extends to voice services as SHIELD is the only streamer you can control with both Amazon Echo and Google Home devices. Available through a new Amazon Skill, you can ask Alexa to help with navigating and enjoying your favorite movies, TV shows, music and more.”

Here are some voice commands you can now use with Alexa and the Nvidia Shield:

Getting started

  • “Alexa, turn on SHIELD.”
  • “Alexa, turn off SHIELD.”

Controlling the volume

  • “Alexa, set volume to 80 percent on SHIELD.”

Opening entertainment apps

  • “Alexa, open Prime Video (on SHIELD).”
  • “Alexa, open HBO NOW (on SHIELD).”

Using media controls

  • “Alexa, pause (on SHIELD).”
  • “Alexa, play (on SHIELD).”
  • “Alexa, next (on SHIELD).”
  • “Alexa, previous (on SHIELD).”
  • “Alexa, fast-forward ten minutes (on SHIELD).”

Navigating SHIELD

  • “Alexa, go to settings (on SHIELD).”
  • “Alexa, go home (on SHIELD).”
