Android Oreo rolling out now to NVIDIA Shield TV boxes

We realize that's confusing, but we wanted to make sure you understand that if you get an update that says Shield Experience 7.0, that's not Android 7.0 Nougat, but rather Android 8.0 Oreo.

That changes with the latest software update, which brings the new version of Google's Android TV operating system, 8.0 aka Oreo, and with it a revamped home page.

When Huawei's sub-brand Honor began the Android 8.0 Oreo rollout for its Honor 7X last month, it was initially meant only for US users. The good news is that unlike other Android updates, the Shield Experience 7.0 update will be available to all Shield TV owners, regardless of which generation device they own.

What does the Shield Experience 7.0 update include?

Thanks to Android 8.0 Oreo, you will not find everything that you need in one place: Live TV, video-on-demand, streaming media, as well as games. You can all customize the screen according to your preferences and set only the items you want to see. Simply hold the "Select" button on the app to move it. Hold the "Home" button to access all apps.

The FWP wildlife management section chief Quentin Kujala later clarified it is most likely to be a wolf-dog hybrid. One online commenter wrote, "That could very well be what's being called Dogman", the Tribune reported.

You can also organize your apps in a new way where your favorite shows on each app are put first in line. The update focuses on content, providing an intelligent stream of movies, YouTube videos and TV shows for you to watch at the click of a button. Underneath is a "Play Next" row for a quick and easy way to continue the movie or TV show you were previously watching. Its similar to the experience you will find on a Fire TV box or Stick, or Xbox One, where programming on Netflix and other services get their own row of suggestions.

The headline is a brand-new home screen that brings content to the forefront in the form of Channels.

While browsing through channels, navigate all the way to the left to move or remove them. Several apps for NVIDIA are also receiving updates. NVIDIA has also worked with 3rd-party companies with this update bringing in support for Arlo cameras, Emerson Sensi, Ikea Tadfri, LG smart appliances, and Scenes support for Phillips Hue.
