NVIDIA Shield TV si aggiorna col supporto per Amazon Music e telecomando Fire TV

Vezio Ceniccola

Nuovo importante aggiornamento in arrivo per i dispositivi NVIDIA Shield TV, che in queste ore stanno iniziando a ricevere la nuova SHIELD Experience 7.2. I cambiamenti questa volta sono davvero tanti, ma tra questi si nascondono anche delle bella aggiunta per i prodotti Amazon, a cominciare dal telecomando della Fire TV e di Amazon Music.

Il servizio musicale di Amazon è ora supportato nativamente dai box Shield TV, per la gioia di tutti gli utenti abbonati a questa piattaforma. Per utilizzarlo basta aprire il drawer e selezionare la relativa app, inserendo eventualmente tutte le informazioni del nostro account.

A partire da questa versione software, il telecomando dei dispositivi FireTV (2018) può essere utilizzato anche su Shield TV, andando nelle impostazioni e utilizzando l’accoppiamento Bluetooth.

Altre novità molto interessanti sono quelle relative alla possibilità di personalizzare i quick settings e di disabilitare la funzione Comfort Noise, oltre a poter controllare le soundbar via IR e il volume via Amazon Alexa. Inoltre, è stato aggiornato anche il kernel Android, ora in versione 4.9.
