It’s always good to have some new software updates, especially when you’re running an Android OS. Nvidia will be releasing Android 11 update for All Shield TV Devices.
Taken from TPU … What seems to be one of the best supported products by NVIDIA, is getting yet another update in the shape of the Shield Software Experience Upgrade 9.0, which brings Android 11 to the NVIDIA Shield devices. The fact that Android 11 is only arriving around the same time Android 12 is landing on most phones is a different matter, but the OS isn’t the only update you’re getting if you own a Shield device. NVIDIA has added support for aptX, something that should please users of compatible headsets, as it’s so far the most common higher-end Bluetooth audio solution, although LDAC was already supported.
NVIDIA has also updated its GeForce Now game streaming software and is pushing its new RTX 3080 to those of us that have been unlucky enough to not be able to get one at MSRP. There are also updates for the Apple TV and Google Play Movies and TV apps, where the latter gets Dolby Vision support. US owners of a Shield TV device are also getting six months of Peacock Premium for free, but a Google account is required to take advantage of this offer. There are several other minor updates and fixes as well, such as an option to automatically disconnect Bluetooth devices when the Shield TV is put to sleep and a new energy saver setting.
