Google announces Android TV

Written by Slobodan Simic

Global launch in 2015

After announcing the Android L Developer Preview and the eagerly awaited Android Wear which will be the shining star of most upcoming wearable devices, Google has also announced Android TV at its Google I/O 2014 event.

According to Google, Android TV is not a new platform but rather just a new form-factor which will be supported by Android. Android TV will allow you to control your Android TV powered television set or set-top box from either your phone, tablet or even a smartwatch powered by Android Wear.

The design is in line with the "Material" look which is a part of the newely announced cross platform design language, called Material Design. The new cross platform design language will be the key part of the upcoming Android L OS so it does not come as a surprise that Android TV will share some key features with it.

Android TV will basically give you all your music, movies, games and everything else from the Play Store and will support game controllers which suggest that it will be quite focused on the Android gaming on a big screen.

The Android TV is expected to launch on multiple different form-factors like streaming devices, set-top boxes and even TVs later this year with a wider release in 2015. Google managed to bring some big names and all newer models of Sony, Sharp and Philips TVs will have support for Android TV, while some companies like Asus and Razor have already confirmed their own Android TV set-top boxes.
