Report: Google is preparing to launch Android TV

Posted Apr 5, 2014

According to
The Verge, Google is reportedly going to launch another smart TV product. The set top box will be apparently easier to use than previous initiatives like the Google TV. 

“Android TV is an entertainment interface, not a computing platform,” said a leaked Google document obtained by The Verge.

One of the most notable features is that content will be suggested to users in the form of a recommendation engine.

The launch date is not known, but Google is recruiting developers to build apps for Android TV. These products should not affect Google Chromecast.
