0

NVIDIA has rolled out SHIELD Software Experience Upgrade 7.2 to its Android set-top box, bringing with it a host of new improvements.

One of the significant updates is the addition of Amazon Music app. It joins the likes of other music streaming platforms including Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, iHeartRadio, TuneIn and more.

With the Amazon Music app on SHIELD, Prime members have access to more than two million songs with Prime Music, included with your membership at no additional cost. SHIELD users will also have access to Amazon Music’s premium streaming tier with more than 50 million songs, including the latest releases from today’s popular artists.

Amazon Music Unlimited is available ad-free, with unlimited skips and offline listening, starting at $7.99/month for Prime members, and $9.99/month if you don’t have a Prime account.

For a limited time, new Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers can get three months of the premium streaming tier for just $0.99, and enjoy unlimited access to more than 50 million songs and hands-free listening on their favorite devices.

SHIELD also has Chromecast built-in, so you can cast Amazon Music from your phone or tablet to your TV for additional control.

Spreading a little holiday cheer, through December 24, 2018, you can score a SHIELD starting at $149. The sale price is available at the SHIELD store, Amazon, Best Buy, and other electronics retail partners.
