Google to Unveil a New Television Set-Top Box
DesignNtrend.com reports that Google is preparing to unveil a new television set-top box on Wednesday. It will challenge the likes of Amazon and Apple in the race to control digital content in the home.
During its developer conference on Wednesday, the company will show off one small set-top box that is similar to the Roku, Amazon’s Fire TV, and Apple’s Apple TV.
Google’s device will host another company’s brand name, and the new Android TV software that is designed to play movies, games and other content will power it. What’s cool is the fact that users will be able to control the box through their Android smartphones, tablets or other handheld devices.
