NVIDIA SHIELD will gain new apps, games and more with Android N


The NVIDIA SHIELD keeps on getting better with each and every update. At Google I/O 2016, new additions were introduced to the platform, and the SHIELD will be one of the first to adopt these new additions.

The next major update to the operating system will be Android N. With it, SHIELD owners will get a plentiful of new apps and games. Some apps with popular titles coming to the platform include WatchESPN, Spotify and Disney. Some upcoming games include Resident Evil 5 and Homefront: The Revolution. Movie lovers will get access to STARZ and ENCORE with the new update, something worth looking forward to.

News readers will be happy to know that CNN, NPR News and ABC News will soon all be available on the platform. Family friendly programming is also getting a revamp with WATCH ABC, Freeform, Disney Channel, Disney Jr. and Disney XD, and Nickelodeon.

NVIDIA is working hard to partner with VUDU, which would give users access to some of the largest 4K content providers right on their SHIELD. HDR GameStream will be new to SHIELD allowing users to stream PC games with HDR on the big screen. DVR support and multiscreen viewing are among just some of the features coming with the Android N release on Android TV.

There’s clearly lots to look forward to in the next major release for Android TV, and to celebrate, NVIDIA is giving all buyers of the 16GB or 500GB SHIELD a remote as a bonus totally free of charge.
