Apple TV now on NVIDIA SHIELD with Android TV

Apple TV was launched on NVIDIA SHIELD this week. The Apple TV app is generally only available to Google TV, the next generation in Android TV software. If you have a TV at home with Android TV and not Google TV, you almost certainly did not have the ability to use the Apple TV app and service. Now, NVIDIA announced that their Android TV device NVIDIA SHIELD will have access to said app.

NVIDIA SHIELD TV SmartThings Link will become unusable in July

NVIDIA SHIELD TV SmartThings Link will become unusable in July

A smart home hub is only as useful as the number of languages it can speak. Given the number of disparate smart home platforms available today, it pays to either understand all those or at least have the ability to learn to communicate with other smart home products. That was practically what the SmartThings Link USB dongle did for the NVIDIA SHIELD TV but that dongle itself will lose its ability to speak the SmartThings language when Samsung upgrades its ecosystem in June.

NVIDIA SHIELD TV Experience update keeps NVIDIA’s track record

NVIDIA SHIELD TV Experience update keeps NVIDIA’s track record

NVIDIA doesn't get much attention in mobile news mostly because it doesn't have a phone or even a tablet to sell. It does have a couple of Android TV devices, and, to its credit, it may be one of the best-supported Android products next to Google's own Pixel phones. It has been more low-key on updates lately but that doesn't mean it has stopped its practice. Unfortunately, the latest update, while much needed, is missing the one piece of good news owners have been dying to hear.

NVIDIA GeForce NOW will soon be streaming to Android TVs

Game streaming news continues to flow especially during these days when the console hardware market seems to be waiting with bated breath for the next big thing. The promise of universal gaming is strong but its current implementations are not that convincing since you're limited by what devices or specific models are officially supported. NVIDIA might be preparing to expand the coverage of GeForce NOW that could give it an ironic advantage over Stadia on Google's own turf.

Full Android TV Chromecast dongle may finally threaten Amazon Fire TV stick

A rumor today suggests that Google may finally have an answer for the Amazon Fire TV Stick and other dongle-like smart TV platforms. This device would be a follow-up to the Google Chromecast Ultra, a relatively small device that plugs into an HDMI port at the back of a television and requires its own power source - generally provided by a power cord also included in the box. That device does not run Android TV - this new device might.

Cyberpunk 2077 is also supposed to be released with Google Stadia, but no release date has yet been revealed.

New NVIDIA SHIELD Remote coming in 2020 but old model already gone

New NVIDIA SHIELD Remote coming in 2020 but old model already gone

It isn't uncommon for companies, especially those with fewer resources to devote to multiple generations of products, to discontinue an old model once a new one becomes available. The common practice, however, is to make sure that the new one is really available to consumers before yanking the old one out of the picture. Whether by mistake or by design, that isn't the case of NVIDIA's new SHIELD Remote and anyone who needs to buy one will have to wait for the new Remote to start shipping in about two months' time.
