The announcement was first made by NVIDIA during their CES 2017 address, however Google later confirmed on its Keyword blog what it coming along with the details.
Google is beginning to deliver on the message it has been pushing all along, that its new Google Assistant is a personalized Google for everyone, and it will soon be there for us whenever and wherever we need its assistance.
According to NVIDIA and Google itself, the Google Assistant is now making its way over to Android TV, and will soon expand to additional platforms such as Android Wear and various car infotainment systems.

This will open up a whole new dimension of possibilities. Supported boxes include, Google’s Nexus Player, the new NVIDIA SHIELD TV (details coming), the AirTV Player, Sharp Aquos, Sony Bravia, Xiaomi Mi Box, and other less popular ones.
