Today in San Francisco, Google took the wraps off its new Android TV. It essentially revamps the company’s smart TV ambitions into a platform that can work with Android smartphones and mobile devices, ties into Google search, YouTube and Google Play video titles, as well as game apps.
The software will work with set-top boxes, streaming boxes and consoles, and will also come with casting features. Sharp, Sony and TPVision, among others, announced as early partners. Others, including LG, Asus and Razr, are coming this fall.
