It is one of the best-followed products on its market. NVIDIA has already delivered 26 software updates to owners of the SHIELD TV
, with new features and functionality, even for the very first models launched in 2015.
Stamped SHIELD Experience 9.0, the latest update deployed today is no exception to the rule and will provide all users with a nice leap forward.
SHIELD TV upgrades to Android 11
NVIDIA had decided to snub Android 10 for its SHIELD TVs, leaving their owners on Android 9 while waiting for a more substantial update. It was long awaited, and now it is finally available. As of January 12, 2022, all generations of the multimedia TV box will finally switch to Android 11.
The 27e update obviously comes with new applications and functions. Starting with the support for Dolby Vision HDR through Google Play Movies & TV, which should provide a better experience for users. New catalogs of video content have also been added, up to 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos for some, including Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Disney + and YouTube TV. The audio experience has also been improved slightly with support for APTX Bluetooth headsets.
NVIDIA product obliges, SHIELD TV does not skimp on the video game aspect either. Subscribers of the latest GeForce Now RTX 3080 subscription will be able to enjoy a refined 4K HDR experience with 7.1 surround sound. Note that Twitch will now allow you to play and stream simultaneously in high quality.
