NVIDIA Shield Experience 7.2.3 rolls out with Xbox Elite wired controller support
The NVIDIA Shield is arguably one of the very few Android TV boxes that is actually worth every penny. The device was originally released in 2015 and it has been receiving consistent updates ever since. The last version of the system, Shield Experience 7.2.2, was released in January. It brought automatically switching the color modes and bug fixes for some of the popular apps, games, and hardware. Now NVIDIA is rolling out Shield Experience 7.2.3.
The latest version of the Shield Experience operating system brings Xbox Elite wired controller support. Microsoft released the Elite version of its standard controller back in 2015. Unlike the standard controller, Xbox Elite has a rubberized grip, swappable metal thumbsticks, backpaddles, and also metal shoulder triggers. Xbox Elite retails for $149 and it is meant for wireless gaming. From the looks of it, the Shield Experience update only supports the controller in wired mode, so you have to plug in a micro USB cable to the gadget.
Another very important addition is the December 2018 security patches. While it’s still slightly older, better security is always welcome. Also, if you are suffering from the software related WiFi problems, you can now you can restart the service by going to Settings > Network > Restart Wi-Fi. Shield Experience 7.2.3 also includes better customization options for power controls via HDMI-CEC protocol, which lets you use single remote for your TV and connected devices. You can see the full changelog below.
