Google has been ignoring Android for televisions for some time, not bringing big innovations. However, during a conference in Amsterdam, the company unveiled its future plans for the platform over the next 3 years, including bringing in Google Stadia.
Therefore, by 2020 when Android 11 (R) comes out for televisions, the platform will be compatible with Google Stadia game subscription service. Additionally, there will be compatibility with home smart devices and Google Lens. More news from Android TV 11 include:
- Other device identification improvements
- Expanded ad offer home screen
- Greater application compatibility
What is Android TV?
Android TV is the version of the operating system developed by Google for televisions. It's the interface that many Android boxes use like Nvidia Shield and the discontinued Razer Forge TV. Although updated, the system has not received big news.
The Android box market is no longer as popular as it was a few years ago. In this sense, this revitalization of Android TV with the inclusion of Stadia may arouse new interest in the platform.
Still, no Stadia for UK
The Google Stadia service allows you to stream games via Google Chrome, mobile phone, tablet, and in the future, TVs. The base monthly amount will be $ 9.99 and broadcasts up to 4K at 60 FPS are possible.
UK is not on the list of countries launching the service, estimated for November. Our Spanish neighbors will, however. Unfortunately so far no further news about the presence of Google Stadia in UK’s lands has been advanced.
