With the announcement of Android TV, we all knew this was coming. Google TV, one of Google’s first attempts at taking over the living room TV, is dead.
Google TV was never a very successful project for Google, but as with anything, they learned lessons from it. Everything Google did with their previous attempts in the living room led up to the Chromecast and Android TV, and that’s what they’re dedicated to now. What does that mean for Google TV? Well, it’s not going to be updated again.
Google did mention that a small number of Google TV devices will be updated to Android TV, but they didn’t mention which ones. Google TV will still work, but it won’t be updated ever again. All features and apps should continue functioning.
