Google Updates Google TV

Posted Oct 28, 2011

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) has updated the user interface for Google TV. “This chapter is not about replacing broadcast or cable TV; it?s not about replicating what?s on TV to the Web,” stated Google VP of Product Management Mario Queiroz and Director of Engineering Vincent Dureau. Google announced a software update for Google TV and they focused on four key areas for the update. This includes keeping the user interface simple, making it easier to find something worth watching, making YouTube better on TV, and bringing additional apps to TV.

The Google TV platform contributes to this evolution by enabling new content creators to add to the programming you already enjoy on your TV. Given so much choice, we?re committed to delivering the best way to discover and engage with the high-quality entertainment on your television, whether that comes from your cable or satellite provider (DISH, Comcast, DIRECTV, etc.) or from the Web (YouTube, Netflix, and thousands more). The initial version of Google TV wasn?t perfect, but launching it gave us the opportunity to learn. These are still early days, and we?re working hard to move forward with each update.
