NVIDIA says that it’s now pushing the SHIELD Experience 5.0 update to the SHIELD TV (2015). The update is a biggie, bringing with it Android 7.0 Nougat as well as several new features and improvements.
Some of the goodies packed into this update is Amazon Video with 4K HDR support, several new games, the ability to watch live video from Nest Cams, new apps, and more. You can find the full changelog for the update right here.
