Earlier this month, we reported on a new feature coming to Android TV gadgets that autoplays teaser movies on the house display. The brand new function is supposed to attract your consideration to new content material and, probably, persuade you to look at. And whereas varied Android TV-powered gadgets have obtained the replace over the previous few weeks, 9to5 Google noticed Nvidia’s Protect TV line seems to be exempt up to now.
We checked our personal Nvidia Shield TV Pro and, after making certain it was working the most recent model, we found there have been no residence display advertisements to be discovered. A fast test of underlying companies and apps confirmed that our Protect TV was utilizing Android TV Core Companies model 2.12-320114979-f and Android TV House model 2.1.3-320113730-f. Each have been listed as up to date on July 8, 2020.
In the meantime, we fired up our TiVo Stream 4K, up to date Android TV Core Companies and Android TV House to the identical model numbers and the house display function all of the sudden appeared. The truth is, upon returning to the house display after updating the Stream 4K, Android TV highlighted the brand new function so we wouldn’t miss it.
It’s at the moment unclear why the Nvidia Protect seems to be exempt from the brand new function. It might be one thing so simple as a slight delay in testing and QA departments signing off on the replace. In any case, we’ll proceed to regulate the story and replace as we study extra.
