NVIDIA announced the latest push for its GRID cloud gaming service earlier today with Saint's Rov IV and more titles in the coming weeks, and now there's a SHIELD Tablet update to go along with it. In addition to enabling more GRID games, the update improves a few aspects of the device. It will stay on Android 5.0.1, though.
The changelog is visible in the screenshot above, but here it is again just for good measure.
More great streamed PC games, for free – No PC required: You can now play popular titles such as Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7, PixelJunk Shooter and GRID 2 amongst many others. New games are added every week on #SHIELDTuesday
Standby battery life improvements: Improved battery life in standby/idle conditions, especially with WiFi turned ON
Improved charging performance and compatibility: Broader support for high performance chargers
Support for SHIELD Hub 4.1: Includes GameStream multi-controller support
The update is available to both the WiFi and LTE version of the tablet. While the update is a little under 100MB for the WiFi variant, it's about 135MB for the LTE. You can get it immediately by heading to the system update menu in the settings.
