    Just as we shared a few weeks ago, NVIDIA was working on a big update for their Shield Android TV console. The 3.2 update started rolling out today and it includes a number of cool new features. The biggest new doodad is the Plex media server support, although there are quite a few other nifty gizmo add-ons as well. here's a summary of several of them:
    • Netflix in HDR
    • YouTube 4K in 60fps
    • VUDU in 4K
    • Dolby Atmos surround sound
    • Option to turn off your TV when SHIELD goes to sleep
    • Mounting of a network attached storage device (NAS)
    • Accessibility of SHIELD folders from network PCs with drag-and-drop sharing (Settings>Storage & reset>Access SHIELD folders on PC)
    • Picture improvements to RGB TVs
    • Latest Android security patch
