NVIDIA Shield tablet receives Android 5.0 Lollipop


As promised, the NVIDIA Shield tablet is now receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop software update OTA (over-the-air). It's also one of the the first non Nexus-branded Android products to be updated to Lollipop.

Besides the new features and improvements from Lollipop, the update also brings some extra features to NVIDIA's own apps. Dabbler, their drawing app used in conjunction with the Shield Tablet's bundled stylus, will support layers, custom color creation, stencils, and drawing uploads directly to Google Drive. It will even tie in with the system's native Twitch streaming, so you can broadcast your artistic skills live to the world.

The Shield Hub is also getting a Material Design update. It will have added a link to Grid games in addition to existing access to Android titles and games stored on a paired PC. You'll also get access to 4K console mode, which is good news for those of us with ridiculously nice TVs, and Y-cable support for those that really need to plug everything into their device. According to reports, the Shield Portable will also be receiving the update in the near future.
