SHIELD Hub Gets Material Design Makeover


Today, SHIELD Hub receives major updates with an improved user interface, improved GameStream experience in console mode, and improved connectivity to GRID.

SHIELD Hub’s new layout has been redesigned to show more of your games upfront to minimize scrolling. The My PC Games and GRID tabs now shows more games with vertical scrolling, making it much easier to navigate large lists and find the game you’re looking for. The look and feel of SHIELD Hub has been refreshed to reflect Google’s Material Design language with subtle animations, layers, and updated iconography.

The new SHIELD Hub features an improved GameStream experience in console mode. Gamers with a fast Wi-Fi connection allows a display output of 1080p at 60 frames per second. To enable this feature, go to My PC Games -> Streaming Settings (top right) -> Show Advanced Options -> Quality. Set Max Resolution to 1080p and Frame Rate to 60 FPS. A 5GHz Wifi network (802.11n/ac) is required to stream at 1080p.

Users of NVIDIA’s GRID game streaming service should also see improved connection quality with this release.

Be sure to update to the latest version of GeForce Experience when using this release. Today’s GeForce Experience release improves app stability and adds the option to participate in our ongoing beta program.
