The SHIELD Android TV set-top box from NVIDIA is receiving a big update this morning, labeled as upgrade 1.2. Inside, owners who have a 4K TV in the living room can now share photos with super high resolution directly from the Photos & Videos app. 

NVIDIA also baked in enhancements for SD card auto-move settings, improvements for GameStream (PC game streaming over home network), notifications for low battery on SHIELD Remote, plus an update for the SHIELD Remote that should make the accessory a bit more snappy.

Lastly, streaming performance for apps such as Netflix and Google Play Movies has been included. Check out the full changelog below, then go grab it. Unless you are busy at work. Then you will have to wait until later.
