The Verge are this week reporting that Google are soon set to revamp their failed Google TV platform with the launch of a new one, called Android TV, the platform is said to bridge the gap between other currently offered services like Roku, Apple TV and now Amazon’s Fire TV.
Posting a set of screenshots, and a document, The Verge says that the new platform will come with a new interface that will look similar to that of the Google Play Store, with a better sorting system for categories, and menus that look to be a lot easier to navigate.
In the document from The Verge, the site reports that Google says it will be “cinematic, fun, fluid, and fast,” with a focus on finding and enjoying content with the least amount of friction.”
The platform will feature both content from developers and content from the Play Store, allowing users to rent or purchase movies, television shows and music, as well as access other applications like Hangouts, YouTube and Google+, or play games like Where’s My Water, Plants vs Zombies, and Temple Run.
As of yet there’s no official confirmation from Google about the launch, but we expect that the company will reveal its plans for the platform in late-June at its Google I/O developer conference.
In the meantime you can find all the screenshots at the link below.
