(VIDEO) Nvidia demonstrates Android 6.0 Marshmallow on the Shield Tablet K1

NVIDIA wants you to know that Marshmallow for the SHIELD Tablet K1 is nearly ready, and they’ve done so with a nice teaser showing the goods off. Will O’Neil — whom you may remember from when TechTV was still a thing — takes us through the update, which doesn’t depart far from Marshmallow’s natural kit but does add a couple of new NVIDIA-specific things.

For starters, NVIDIA has introduced an updated camera app that gives more options which take advantage of the Tegra X1’s impressive image processor. You’ll be able to make all sorts of changes that are processed on the fly to snap the exact photos you want. We also get refined GeForce Now implementation that’ll bring the streamable console games up-front and center.

Everything else — granular permission control, Google Now on Tap and Doze Mode — are all Marshmallow. So, when’s it coming? That’s the question everyone wants the answer to, and the question that NVIDIA still isn’t yet ready to deliver an answer for. That said, if they’re so proud of their progress that they’re releasing this teaser then we imagine they’re quite close to pushing it live.
