That all changed a few days ago, when Google launched a mini-site detailing the much anticipated Google TV platform. Included with a quick tour, this website reveals a bunch of juicy details about what we can expect to be included with the platform.
Here are the key points illustrated in the tour:
- Search across every channel, every app, and the entire web, simultaneously.
- Ability to browse the whole web, not just some of it.
- Comes with several of your favorite apps, and next year developers can create their own.
- Use your phone as a remote, including voice search.
- Customizable home screen with favorite channels, apps and websites.
- Seamless switching between TV and web, or watch both at the same time.
- DVR access right from the search bar.
- Easy to install and works with your current setup.
Loads Of Apps
On the Features page of the site, Google includes a link to a YouTube video in which they demo the wide variety of apps that will be available on the platform. Check it out:
Needless to say, you are going to be able to do a lot with your TV using Google’s platform. You can view more examples of how the service will look on the website’s Spotlight page. The page states that there will be more examples in the near future.
