The official change log contains a lot of items, including the following:

  • Android 6.0.1 with repositioned navigation buttons, updated emojis, do not disturb until next alarm, double tap Power button to launch the Camera app
  • Doze mode and various power optimizations
  • USB MIDI support
  • improved WiFi connectivity when waking from sleep mode
  • Vulkan API support
  • fixes for Compass, Gamepad Mapper, moving apps to SD card, Doom 3 HDMI output

This software update also includes the March security patch for Android and "overall stability and security enhancements." The original Shield Tablet, including its LTE variants, should get the update in a few weeks as well, reveals Nvidia.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
