Google set to unveil Android TV platform at Google I/O
Google is reportedly planning to unveil Android TV at its Google I/O developer conference in late June, a report from Gigaom, citing "multiple sources familiar with the matter," claims.
The news about Google's current plans was first broken by The Verge.
According to Greenbot, Gigaom's report provides three new pieces of key information, which includes Google's interest in an interface code-named Pano, which puts content first and the second being the company's big focus on gaming.
The third key information is that the Android TV is a platform, not a piece of hardware. It's meant for vendors to build their own devices that run it, to be built into TVs and set-top boxes, the report adds.
