A noticeable redesign awaits the platform. And not only in the logo
Google is preparing changes in the design of the user interface of the Android TV platform, which is used in many smart TVs and set-top boxes.
Android TV will no longer be the same as before. Google changes the interface of smart TVs and prepares a miniature set-top box
According to the Protocol resource, the new interface will be presented with the new compact Google device based on Android TV. Google plans to launch a gadget under the Nest brand.
The platform interface will become more content-oriented. The user will be primarily offered films and television shows, and applications will recede into the background.
The design of the device is similar to the Chromecast media adapter. Unlike Chromecast, it will be a standalone device. To launch content from the new Google gadget on the TV screen, you do not need a smartphone either. The device will receive a full Android TV interface and will come with its own remote control.
Users can install streaming services on it like Netflix and Disney + from the Google Play Store, manage using the voice commands of the Google Assistant. The price will be about $ 80.
Yesterday, a message also appeared that Google could change the name of Android TV to Google TV.
