Android TV 11 for NVIDIA SHIELD is rumored to be on the way

Android TV 11 for NVIDIA SHIELD might be just around the corner
And it looks like NVIDIA is very close to keeping its promise. The Google Play Console currently lists all active SHIELD TV models as supporting Android 11. The listings spotted by @AndroidTV_Rumor confirm that all SHIELD TV models with the exception of the 2017 generation do support Android 11.

For several years, NVIDIA has supported the SHIELD TV, a one-of-a-kind effort that is unlikely to be matched by any other device vendor anytime soon. People who expected NVIDIA to provide Android 10 TV to their set-top boxes were left waiting until the company announced the upgrade would not be coming a few months ago. NVIDIA indicated at the time that there were insufficient benefits for SHIELD TV customers to justify an Android 10 TV update, and that the firm will instead focus on delivering the next big update to people who purchased the Android TV box.

Highlights

  • Although that doesn’t mean that Android TV 11 is coming to all NVIDIA SHIELD TV models, it’s solid evidence that it could happen very soon. And with CES and MWC 2022 trade fairs right around the corner, we kind of expect NVIDIA to make its move. New reasons to get excited every week.
