Android TV is an increasingly popular smart TV system in Europe. Beyond TVs that come with this system preinstalled, there are plenty of devices to convert any TV, monitor, or even projector to devices with this system.
There is something for everyone, from the extremely affordable Chromecast with Google TV and Xiaomi Mi Stick TV to high-performance equipment specializing in the gaming experience such as the Nvidia Shield TV. These devices are starting to receive a new update that reminds us why it’s the best Android TV device to play.
Nvidia Shield TV review: new design and much more power
After renewing their Android TV, it was time to give them a try. And here’s our review: Here’s what to expect from the new Nvidia Shield TV. Very recommendable.< ins class="adsbygoogle" style="background:none;display:inline-block;max-width:800px;width:100%;height:200px;max-height:200px;" data-ad-client="ca-pub-7130643274838149" data-ad-slot="4774237423" data-ad-format="auto" data-full-width-responsive="true">
Nvidia Shield TVs updated to support next-gen console controllers
One of the things we appreciate the most about the Nvidia Shield TV is the effort the company puts in to keep them up to date. Whether you own the latest model or its predecessors from 2017 or 2015, these devices are updated relatively frequently to catch up with Android TV versions or to receive specific updates on the Nvidia experience.
Shield Experience 8.2.2 is the last version to reach the Nvidia Shield. Although the latest update for this device fixed a host of bugs, the list of changes in this release is much shorter, but it will make most gamers happy.
After the update, you will be able to play your Android or streaming games (via GeForce NOW, Stadia or Xbox Game Pass) with the next-gen controllers included in the Xbox Series S, Series X and PlayStation 5. If you have a new generation c onsole is good news to enjoy your new controller in the Shield, while if you are looking for a controller for that maybe these newer models will appeal to you (maybe I will get an Xbox controller for my Shield TV ).
If you have one of these controllers, you will need to go to Bluetooth settings and pair a new device. Once you’re in the menu, you’ll need to put your controller into pairing mode:
- PlayStation 5: Press and hold the PlayStation and Share buttons at the same time until the light on the controller flashes blue.
- Xbox: Press and hold the pairing button until the Xbox logo starts flashing.
