Android users rejoice. Google's new Android TV is bringing your favorite operating system to your living room.
This isn't like Google's less-than-popular Google TV; the new Android TV is more focused on entertainment and giving you an easy, fun experience.
One cool thing about it is that you can use Android TV with set-top boxes, smart TVs and video game consoles. There will also be a remote control that you can command with your voice.
Thinking of buying a smart TV? Here are a few things you need to know first.
Android TV will have a lot of entertainment options. You can stream movies, TV shows and music from apps like Google Play, YouTube and Netflix. You can also play Android games on your TV. You can even watch live television through the Android TV system.
And don't forget about your Android smartphones and tablets. Android TV will sync up with them for sharing photos, streaming music and more.
How many times have you spent half an hour searching Netflix for something to watch? Android TV has you covered. It will create personal recommendations right on your home screen. It will also use Google's top-notch search algorithm to help you find what show or movie you want with no typing involved. Simply say "George Clooney Movies" and watch them all appear before your eyes!
The streaming market is full of options right now, but Android TV looks like it could be a smart investment if you're looking to cut the cord. Of course, I'll let you know more after it's actually available.
