Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) CEO Eric Schmidt said that Google is planning to launch Google TV this fall. At the IFA technology trade fair in Berlin, Schmidt presented Google TV. Google TV puts a search bar at the top of the TV screen and allows users to surf the Internet. TV listings will also be placed on Google TV.
Google is working with multiple TV content providers for this new service. Applications built on top of this service will be available next year. Users will be able to change the channel using their voice using Google’s speech recognition technology as well.
