The future of smart TVs with Android TV seems to be over. The future will be the implementation of Google TV on all compatible devices and the introduction of new features.
The most recent discovery made by 9to5 Google points to the inclusion of a mode that will disable all functionality smart of your television. That is, Google TV should implement the “dumb TV” option.
Google TV will offer the possibility to disable the smart functions of the television
The clues were found in the test version of Android 12 made available a few days ago. There, the elements of the publication 9to5 Google have come across a new way for smart TVs with Google software.
According to this source, users will be asked what mode they prefer to use on their television. The choices will fall on Google TV or basic television.
By choosing the latter, the user will dispense with all the features that allow us to classify a television as intelligent. That is, features such as installing applications, Google Assistant or sharing the screen with the smartphone will be disabled.
Users will be restricted to the transmission of the cable television signal and to the HDMI inputs present on their television. It will be like going back to the past, where televisions only allowed to see the content transmitted by traditional channels.
However, this “dumb” mode will not be the focus of Google. While that mode is active, users will be constantly reminded that they can activate Google TV to get the most out of their television.
It is unclear what might motivate Google to make such an option available, but hardware limitations may be involved. These will take on greater relevance in a few years’ time, when television hardware is no longer able to keep up with trends.
Nothing is guaranteed for the time being made available on Google TV in this way. The possibility is being studied by the American company and if implemented, it should be exclusive to televisions launched with the operating system.
