Nvidia's Shield Android TV gets a little more customizable with Marshmallow upgrade

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is coming to the Nvidia Shield Android TV, bringing with it a handful of small and useful updates. Nvidia hasn't said exactly when the upgrade will be available, but released a video yesterday outlining the new features. These include more customization for the home screen, greater control over external storage, and a hands-free, first time setup process that lets you add your Google account to the Shield just by telling your smartphone: "OK Google, set up my device."

The company also says that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance — a port from the PlayStation 3 — will finally be available on the Shield from January 7th. This should make full use of the Shield's Tegra X1 processor (after all, the device is supposed to be about gaming as well as watching TV), but it seems Shield owners are still waiting on those other ports shown off at the device's unveiling, including Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
