Recently, Nvidia removed the Upgrade 5.0 release notes in the Shield TV (2015) and added them on the listing for the recent Shield TV release. The original version will still be upgraded to Android 7.0, but this will not happen that soon, probably.
At the CES 2017 event we got the chance to see the brand new 2017 version of the Nvidia Shield TV, which came together with the Android 7.0 Nougat and a couple of new features. Soon after that, people found out that many of the new updates will be added to the 2015 version of the product too.
Now it seems that Nvidia will be rolling out the Shield Experience Upgrade 5.0 to their older model of the box. This means that the 2015 one will enjoy Android Nougat, Amazon Video and many other options. However, people seem to be particularly excited about the addition of the Android 7.0. With this new software, Shield TV is now able to support picture-in-picture options, a redesigned menu in settings, together with a new app page. After you update your device, you just have to press twice the home button on your remote in order to see your most recent apps.
You can also enjoy now the Amazon Video app with the update for Shield TV. With it, you can stream all the 4K HDR Amazon videos, but only if you have a Prime membership. The upgrade will also bring you Twitter for TV, NFL, Comedy Central, Viki and Vimeo, which made lots of fans happy.
Besides, there are also a number of other improvements, such a performance upgrade to the GeForce Now function, which lets you play video games in the cloud on a computer by running GTX 1080 graphics. You will also be able to stream games from your PC in a 4K HDR quality through GameStream faster than before.
