A few weeks ago Nvidia announced that they would be rolling out a major software update this month called the Nvidia Shield April 2014 for their relatively new Nvidia Shield Android gaming console. Today Nvidia has released more details and a beta release of its Nvidia Shield April 2014 update enabling their handheld console to stream games directly through the web, provided you have a fast enough Internet connection connecting your handheld console.
Previously the handheld Android gaming console would only allow you to play graphically intensive games that were being processed and streamed via your home computer system, requiring both devices to be on the same network. To learn more about the new updates that have been released this month watch the video below.
“NVIDIA SHIELD has a new software update that offers new and improved features making your portable gaming experience better than ever. NVIDIA’s GameStream technology now takes your PC streaming experience outside of your home network. With a fast WiFi connection, you’ll stream over 100 of the hottest PC titles, on the go.
TegraZone features an enhanced interface making it easier and faster to find the best Android games optimized for SHIELD. Gamepad mapper delivers a new interface allowing you to map touched based game controls to your SHIELD’s console grade controllers. Stay up to date with the latest Android operating system with Android KitKat 4.4.2.”
