Google and NVIDIA made a big splash when it announced that Google Assistant has just landed on Android TVs and, specifically, the NVIDIA SHIELD. But that's really only part of the equation. Sure, you'll be able control your NVIDIA SHIELD with just your voice, but if you want to do anything beyond the TV, you'll need another piece of the puzzle. That piece is Samsung's SmartThings Link that transforms the SHIELD into a makeshift SmartThings Hub. And while that dongle won't ship until next month, you can already pre-order one right now.
