The games also have immersive 7.1 surround sound, assuming you have the sound system to support it. SHIELD Experience Update 9.0 also updates the streaming box to Android 11. While most Android devices are moving towards Android 12, the SHIELD is a little behind. Still, you get a refreshed interface, a new Gboard version, and plenty of other goodies with this update. It also includes Android security patch level September 2021.
SHIELD Experience Update 9.0 has just been released for the SHIELD TV. The RTX 3080 tier of GeForce NOW adds a slew of additional capabilities, including the ability to stream PC games in 4K and HDR. There’s a lot crammed into this latest NVIDIA SHIELD TV update, but the feature that drew our eye was compatibility for GeForce NOW’s top tier.
