NVIDIA Shield Experience 9.1, update with fixes for PLEX

New version available of NVIDIA Shield Experience 9.1 with Android TV 11 system. An update that fixes bugs from the previous version and adds interesting features.

The Android TV 11 system adds features such as the option to enable game mode on ALLM compatible TVs, fixes multiple bugs, integrates security enhancements and also adds audio improvements. In the remote control we have new functions to activate the Shield only from the power button or Netflix.

An update that is downloaded automatically thanks to the OTA system (it is still being deployed and may take some time) that makes it very easy to install these improvements on our device, if we are not shown the message of this new version we can check it manually within the settings by forcing the search for new updates. Check or Review for more details.
