A few days ago Google presented a new Android TV, and with this update the interface comes even closer to the model of the new Google TV. It’s not the complete Google TV user experience yet, but it’s definitely a slightly reduced customization. Already about the original article, people asked me who is responsible for delivering the new interface.
The first devices are getting the new interface these days, so the rollout seems to be proceeding at a reasonably good pace. In these days, owners of the Xiaomi Mi Box 3 got in touch, they have now received the new interface via system update.
The re is currently a mess between Android TV and Google TV that Google needs to address this year.
Apple TV ends up on Google TV, later also on Android TV
The ir app will initially only land on the Chromecast with Google TV. Although it is mentioned later in the press release that you want to use Android TV, it should be several months in the past. In any case, fans and users should be patient.
