TiVo Stream 4K could soon be updated to Android 10, while NVIDIA stands pat

TiVo is updating the Stream 4K now, while NVIDIA awaits Android 12

What you need to know

  • The TiVo Stream 4K could be receiving its Android 10 update soon.
  • References to Android 10 appeared via the Stream 4K's Google Play Console listing.
  • Meanwhile, NVIDIA has confirmed the Shield TV will not be updated.

An updated listing in the Google Play Console suggests that Android 10 could be coming soon to TiVo's streaming dongle (via 9to5Google And while many of us are awaiting the official release of Android 12, there are plenty of Android TV devices out there that are still running Android 9. So the possibility of an upgrade will be great because those devices include some of the best streaming devices such as the TiVo Stream 4K and NVIDIA Shield TV.

Truthfully, the Android 10 update is a rather minor one, but it's still great to see TiVo remaining committed to providing software updates. The only unfortunate thing about this is that there is no indication as to when the update will begin rolling out to Stream 4K owners.

On the other side of the coin, the team at NVIDIA has confirmed that it does not plan on updating the Shield TV or TV Pro to Android 10. Instead, a forum post states that it was skipped as there was essentially "no impact to end users other than the version string changing." This doesn't mean that all hope is lost for major releases in the future. The same forum post says that "there is still a lot of development going into SHIELD".

This is great news, as it seems that the NVIDIA Shield team is working on bringing more updates to the platform. The lack of an update to Android 10 or Android 11, likely suggests that NVIDIA is focusing more on the Android TV 12 update that is slated to arrive this fall.

With Android TV 12, Google is planning on bringing a "smoother viewing experience", along with some of the best privacy features coming to the standard version of Android 12. Once the update arrives, you'll be able to toggle microphone and camera access, while also viewing which apps have recently accessed the microphone from your streaming device or connected remote.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
