NVIDIA Shield TV Gets Android 7.0 Nougat Update, Picture-In-Picture Support, Amazon Video Now Included
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. The OS upgrade is not the only new thing for the original Shield TV because it comes with cooler features.
Android 7.0 Nougat Upgrade
The move to upgrade the Shield TV's operating system would bring new features to the device. The picture-in-picture support is part of the newest upgrades. This will be available for supported apps such as Live Channels as explained in NVIDIA Shield's support page.
Another addition that many users will be relieved to see in this Android Nougat update is a page where all the recent apps are displayed. Users only need to double-press the home button so this page will appear. To support better navigation, there will also be a new menu for settings.
Shield Experience Upgrade 5.0
Aside from the Android Nougat upgrade that brought numerous changes in the Shield TV's accessibility features, there are also other updates. The Shield TV can now be used by Amazon Prime members. Streaming movies, shows, and other videos available on Amazon is now available in the Shield TV. On top of that, the update will introduce a quicker way to find games in the Shield through the NVIDIA games app. GeForce Performance Upgrades were also made. This will allow users to "play on-demand PC games with performance up to GeForce GTX 1080 gaming graphics in the cloud."
More apps are also going to find its way to the Shield TV. A new feature allowing the user to write to the SD card or USB attached will also be added. These new changes started rolling out on Sunday, Jan. 15. Checking the Shield TV for the upgrade would be a good idea although it might take a few more days for some systems to receive the update.
