About Android TV
Android TV is a smart TV platform developed by Google. Using the latest Android OS, it creates an interactive television experience through a user interface. It is successor to Google’s earlier attempt at a smart TV platform, which was Google TV.
Android TV can be built both into TVs and into stand-alone digital media players. Users have access to the Google Play Store to download Android apps, including media streaming services Youtube, Netflix and Hulu, as well as games.
The platform emphasizes voice search to quickly find content or to answer queries (such as which movies were nominated for an Academy Award in a specific year). The TV interface is divided vertically into three sections: recommendations on top (which update based on viewing habits), media apps in the middle, and games on the bottom.
The interface can be navigated using a game controller, remote control, or the Android TV mobile app. Android TV also supports Google Cast, the technology behind Google’s media player Chromecast that allows a mobile device to be used to select and control media playback on a TV.
