In the update yesterday it enabled Google Assistant for the Android Tv. Does anyone have a list of commands that works? I also read that it doesnt work with the Google Home. Does anyone know if ti work with the assistant on an android device? Thanks

    I am looking for this list too. Every "news" article you find via Google is a regurgitation of the same press release - which said ... pretty much nothing.

    More specifically, I'd like to know how to have Google Assistant shuffle play a TV series. AKA

    Hey Google ... Shuffle Play Modern Family With Plex

    ... any help appreciated!

    Same question.....I can get assistant to play a movie by saying something like "Play Star Wars on Plex" but I haven't figured out how to get it to play music "e.g. Play some Pearl Jam on Plex"

    There are some basics. You can tell it to pause, play and other basic functions while watching. On my shield atleast the only issues launching stuff has been around users. It tries to access the last user you were and if for instance the user didn't have a library another user does etc. it just can't find it. Shield just needs the Spot for always on mic not requiring the controller for this to be the ultimate solution. Nvidia - were still waiting.................. lol

    Anyone know if its possible to control Plex on my Nvidia Shield through google assistant on an android phone? I can use the Nvidia hardware to control Plex via assistant, but as of yet I've been unsuccessful in controlling it via google assistant on my phone.

    It's amazing to me that with such a large community and a functionality announcement in this area that literally noone has any additional information of feedback. This MUST be a primary use case for alot of folks. I know alot of people either switching to google home / assistant over alexa or waited for an assistant until google AI was really available to use via the google home.

    I agree. Plex is now officially supported with Google Assistant on the Nvidia Shield, but I'm struggling to find a list of commands that work. For example, how to launch an artist in the Music library, or even the music library for that matter. I'd like to:
    Open a library (music, tv shows, movies)
    Open a specific movie/tv show
    Play next episode TV Show
    Controls: pause, play, skip, etc.
    Open/close subtitles
    etc.
