History of Google TV
Google is one of the most influential tech companies on the planet. Specializing in a variety of Internet-related services and products, they are perhaps best known for the world-class Google search engine.
However, just like Amazon, Apple, and others, Google has recently directed a good deal of attention towards the connected TV (CTV) and digital entertainment space. Google TV, which is essentially a revamped interface for Android TV, was released in 2020. It’s a platform that unifies all your favorite streaming services in one place and was designed to facilitate optimized user customization and more sophisticated content recommendations.
Google TV offers video and audio content from heavy-hitters like Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Disney Plus, HBO Max, and Spotify. It also offers live television channels, apps, games, and more. By enabling consumers to ditch bulky cable packages for more flexibility, lower costs, and more options, it’s quickly becoming a formidable player in the entertainment space.
