At this time in the SHIELD lifetime, NVIDIA was able to offer master classes in product support. The Android-based streaming gadget has gone through a minor hardware revision, but has seen dozens of noteworthy software and feature updates. The last version was introduced yesterday.

Considering the fact that SHIELD also has access to Prime Video, this should be more than a few. Amazon Prime offers a basic selection of streaming music and radio tools, while the Unlimited upgrade adds 50 million tracks for $ 7.99 a month, or $ 1
Other Treats in the Update It includes the latest Android security updates, 5.1 audio support for the Android TV YouTube app, and user-customizable quick settings on the Home screen (a handy feature in the grid when you're tired of it -based settings menu to jump). The SHIELD also has access to the SMBv3 protocol from Microsoft when accessing files on a remote computer or network-attached storage. This software update will also provide integrated support for Google Assistant to users in Canada, Germany and Spain.
SHIELD TV received substantial discounts compared to Black Friday, but the sale seems to be giving a curtain. Most major US retailers will sell the standard package, the "Gaming Edition" (with controller) and the "Smart Home Edition" (with SmartThings Link) on December 24 for $ 30 on the retail price. Canadian customers can also get a price of $ 40.
The software update should now be available to all users.
