The latest version of Android brings a slew of new features to the Android TV set-top box as well as a new user interface.

The new user interface is called Shield Experience Upgrade 7.0 and it brings a revamped main screen to put all of the users’ apps, music, shows, and games front and center. The experience is customizable so users can adjust the placement themselves.

Popular content will be displayed in channels such as YouTube and Netflix to make content discovery easier. Users can customize the order of these channels as well to put the ones they use the most frequently within easy reach.
