Android TV software 8.0 Oreo revamps with Nvidia Shield TVs

The search engine giant Google put forward an upgraded android TV software last summers that actually did prove to be effective but one major limitation that kept it from outshining others in the market was the inability to be supported by all kind of televisions except for only one; Nexus Player. This drawback highly kept this software from seeping into the masses. However now tabled have turned and Oreo 8.0 is ready to steal the limelight by the help of Nvidia Shield TV that will be supporting the previously underrated software.

The upgrade will bring out many changes both to first and second generations gradually if not rapidly and will possibly redefine the working of the navigation systems complimenting the already competitive specs of shield TV including 4K HDR.

The new update just shifted from being app oriented to content oriented and recommendations will cease to secure space above the screen. Recommended apps and content has been shifted to a separate tab that can skipped, moving from one home screen to another. An addition of “Play Next” app was made allowing users to resume watching and playing their content of interest.

After holding off for a considerable amount of time to pool a significant number of app makers and invite them to work, Nvidia has finally been successful in generating Channels that support them, as mentioned by the Company namely Nvidia Games,YouTube, Netflix, Google Play Movies & TV, Vudu, Plex, Hulu, HBO Now, Showtime, Starz, Google Play Music, Twitch, Spotify, NBC, CBS All Access, Live Channels, Sling TV, and PlayStation Vue, among others. This list is totally editable where changes can be made as either addition or elimination of options.

Oreo 8.0 however is finding stable grounds for itself by becoming more user friendly and we’re excited to see the highs of this software.
