Google recently announced ChromeCast with Google TV and revealed its intention to make a very rapid transition to this “new” operating system. In other words, all new products are expected to start launching with Google TV instead of Android TV, which will be discontinued for good in 2022.
However, by 2022 these two services are expected to coexist and the situation can sometimes be quite difficult for users, as Google has confirmed that it is about promoting Google TV by offering dedicated services and resources.
Basically Google TV is just a new edition of the current operating system, but it is based on Android 10, so above all we are seeing a name change, and evolution, of this operating system, not exactly when starting a new ecosystem, and abandoning another.
Android TV says goodbye in 2022
It also means that it will be possible to offer updates for devices currently running Android TV, in order to migrate them to Google TV in a very easy, fast and hassle free way for users.
Among the targeted devices are set-top boxes, operator boxes, HDMI dongles, but above all connected televisions.
TVs that currently run Google’s operating system are likely to receive Google TV if their manufacturer wants to update it.
