How to update apps on the NVIDIA Shield TV

The NVIDIA Shield TV has been a silent hit since its launch in 2017. It's a mini-PC that allows a customer to access official games on the system, or even use it for unofficial means.

However, they have a wide variety of apps that can be accessed through the Google Play store, as the OS runs on Google's Android in the background.
