Nvidia ends exclusivity of TegraZone, opens it to all Android devices
Nvidia has pushed through the kind of app update that we all love to see, removing device restrictions to open up TegraZone for all Android devices running 2.2 and up. Until now, the TegraZone application, Nvidia Corporation’s mobile portal to its gaming and news ecosystem, has been exclusive to devices running specific Tegra processors.
Version 2.9.0 is available now to update from the Play Store on your Tegra powered device, or download a fresh copy of TegraZone to your non-Tegra device to connect and compete with your friends using Google Play Games Services.
Many successful Android devices were put to market in 2012 with the Nvidia Tegra 3 chip installed, such as the Google Nexus 7 built by Asus. Nvidia wanted you to experience the best, using the TegraZone application as a conduit to high-end games and apps specifically designed to take advantage of, what were at the time, the most powerful devices.
This being said, although you may be able to install the TegraZone application on all of your devices, many of the available games are designed for higher-end devices, and may not actually work on slower machines. You may consider picking up a Nvidia Shield to unlock an even more immersive gaming experience.
