  • Adding the setting "Maximum Adaptive Bitrate", it's simple, with this new feature, if we detect any instability in your connection, we will reduce the maximum bitrate to always favour the fluidity of the stream. And when your connection becomes stable again, we will restore its initial value. Isn't that nice?

  • Added Metal Rendering option in the settings. This option uses a new visual rendering technology. Try it, you might like it. :)

Fixes and Improvements:

  • Improving external screen support.

  • Fix of a display bug that kept the progress of your Shadow update at 0%.

Shadow Beta - tvOS - Launcher v3.5.0

  • It is also easier for you to use Shadow on an external screen.

  • We’ve fixed a bug that was keeping your Shadow update progress to 0%.

Where is the update that was supposed to release Friday that was to fix the chromebook comparability issue? I check the beta version on the app store for shadow and notting.

I got activated today but when installing on my tablet it stuck on Updating your Shadow screen. It's been like that for over 25mins. Wait longer? Or is their a problem?
