Google announced last Friday a major update to its Google TV software that promises to bring significant improvements for users of the platform, in addition to the inclusion of new content partners.
The update finally implements Android 3.1 Honeycomb on Sony and Logitech devices, which contributes to a major improvement in the product ecosystem.
?The interface is now much simpler. The customizable home screen allows you to see your favorite content quickly. And within ?all apps? you can see all your shortcuts, similar to your Android phone or tablet, ?explained Mario Queiroz, Vice President of Product Management.
The company also highlighted the integration of new content channels such as Live TV, Netflix, YouTube, HBO GO and others. "Now there is an app called? TV & Movies ?that allows you to easily browse through 80,000 movies and episodes on cable or satellite TV, Netflix, Amazon, YouTube and many other sites."
The new Google TV software also reveals a new way of viewing YouTube content on television and highlights the possibility of installing applications directly from the Android Market, thus expanding the universe of content available for the platform.
