NVIDIA SHIELD TV (2015) Gets Android Nougat Update

17 January, 2017, 00:50 | Author: Kristopher Anderson

NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang remarked, "SHIELD TV is the world's most advanced streamer".

The TV comes with Google Assistant voice control with NVIDIA offering a peripheral microphone called NVIDIA Spot for its customers separately.

The only real differences are the game controller, which now has a more comfortable design with improved buttons, and the remote control which is now included and drops the headphone jack but has much improved battery life.

The original Shield TV will not be pushed into the background once the new NVIDIA Shield TV is launched since the old streaming device will get an Android 7.0 Nougat upgrade. GeForce Now can give you up to GTX 1080 performance.

First of all, let us see what update 5.0 brings to the table for the NVIDIA SHIELD TV (2015). In addition, all installed games will be displayed in the games row on the Shield's home screen. The Shield TV may become more interesting to non-gamers once the support for Google Assistant and smart home integration is released, but I was unable to test this functionality yet. This will be available for supported apps such as Live Channels as explained in NVIDIA Shield's support page.

Wells Fargo's fourth quarter profits dip slightly in wake of scandal
TIAA CREF Investment Management LLC increased its position in shares of Wells Fargo & Company by 2.8% in the second quarter. Overall, the company surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by an average of 0.50% in the trailing four quarters.

An array of new apps will also be debuting on SHIELD post the update.

The Shield TV had no issues with any of the Android games I tested on it, but it can take a while to download and install them. The downside to GeForce Now is its cost: at $7.99 per month plus the purchase cost of games (Nvidia includes "more than 50 popular games" at no extra cost), you really have to want to play PC games on your TV to make it worthwhile.

The new Games app replaces the SHIELD Hub and could potentially be a boon for those who are interested in playing modern titles but lack the console or gaming PC otherwise required.

Other enhancements include, accessing recent app pages by double clicking the home button to quickly view the recent apps, picture-in-picture support and a new right side vertical settings menu to enjoy quick navigation.
