SHIELD Experience 8.0 begins rolling out to the SHIELD Android TV YESTERDAY and it brings the device up to Android Pie. This makes it the first Android TV box to get updated to Android Pie. NVIDIA updated the SHIELD to Android 8.0 Oreo about a year ago, which is actually around the time when Android Pie for Android TV was shown off. The new update brings the latest security patches, a redesigned settings menu, an improved setup process for new users, and more.


Some Enhancements

Updates "Display and Sounds" advanced setting into two easier to navigate menus.
Adds option to match content color space (Settings > Display & Sound > Advanced).
Improves volume dynamic range for USB and bluetooth connected headsets.
SHIELD TV remote app adds bluetooth assist for pairing and improves connection.
Enables 720p refresh rate switching on supported apps.
Adds "Disconnect Bluetooth accessories" option to quick settings.
Adds IR power control options to customize on/off functionality.
Adds option to turn off USB power when SHIELD sleeps.
Adds option to connect to 2.4GHz or 5GHz Wi-Fi network with shared SSID.
