Also, a new Energy saver setting for additional power customization is included in the update, along with a Stadia button support to Xbox, PlayStation, and SHIELD controllers. Furthermore, the update adds the option to match content audio resolution and support for aptX compatible Bluetooth headsets. Unfortunately, the SHIELD TV units are only getting the September 2021 security patch, but we’re confident that NVIDIA will bring an updated one, at least to newer SHIELD TV models, in the coming months.
NVIDIA’s SHIELD TV is without a doubt the first gadget to receive the Android 11 update. NVIDIA has supplied consumers with regular upgrades since the initial SHIELD TV model was released in 2015, including major Android OS updates like the one that is being rolled out today. NVIDIA is currently releasing Android 11 to all of its SHIELD TV models, including the initial model launched in 2015 (how great is that?! ), under the pretext of Experience Upgrade 9.0. First and foremost, the upgrade introduces a new user interface, more permission controls, and an improved Gboard experience, which includes a new default keyboard with built-in text-to-speech features.
Finally, new SHIELD TV users in the United States will be happy to know that NVIDIA now offers them six months of Peacock Premium at no additional cost. Again, the promotional offer is only available for new SHIELD TV owners in the US. It can be redeemed by setting up a new Google account or log into an existing one and subscribing through the Peacock Premium banner on the For You or Apps tab.”
