One of the more surprising device launches of last year was of Nvidia’s Shield handheld, an Android-powered mini console with a host of nifty Nvidia utilities. We, along with many others, felt the device grow on us with the passage of time, so we’re glad to see support for the device is still top-notch, as evidenced by today’s Nvidia Shield update bringing with it some bugfixes.
The update comes in at a beefy 480MB, quite large for an update of this caliber, but all of these fixes are very much welcome – those screen rotation issues and the disappearing Twitch icon certainly sound like annoying issues on an otherwise great console.
The full update changelog has been made available for you right down below, and the update should be live for all right now – there looks to be no staged rollout at hand, though it’s possible there could be.
