Google secretly planning to dominate living room with Android TV?
Seems news has leaked about Google trying to again make its way to our TVs with Android TV. The last time it tried to push out Google TV, with CEO Eric Schmidt prophesying that Google TV would make its way to all our TVs...well, obviously it hasn't happened now, has it?
But maybe second time's the charm as Android TV is taking a simpler route to our hearts and remotes. What Google is trying to do with it is not to make your TV a big smartphone, but instead creating what it calls an "entertainment interface". It will not change how you use your TV, but instead Google will 'helpfully' be recommending you stuff to watch. Or buy. Or play.
Google is also promising that it will be "cinematic, fun, fluid, and fast". The leaked screens on The Verge make it look not all too much different from Amazon's newly-launched Fire TV.
