At Google I/O 2021, the Android TV group reported a significant achievement — the stage presently has 80 million month to month dynamic gadgets, with over 80% development in the US alone. However, the group isn’t becoming complacent. All things considered, Google reported that the Android 12 Beta is going to its advancement box today, the ADT-3, alongside sharing that the current Android 11 variant of the TV OS will at long last be accessible as an emulator going ahead.
As usual, you will not need to hold your breath about getting the Android 12 beta on your TV. It’s just accessible on Google’s improvement machine, the ADT-3, which is explicitly focused on designers needing to make applications for the stage. Given that the machine costs $80, the new emulator (presented above) may be more available for more modest non mainstream engineers. Google dispatched it with Android 11, allowing designers to encounter the conventional TV interface in their improvement climate, complete with a virtual distant.
It’s a bummer that the beta isn’t going to Google’s true first-party Android TV dongle, the Chromecast with Google TV. Notwithstanding, the gadget is obviously a customer item and focused at standard people, significantly more so than the Pixel telephones, which verifiably outgrew the improvement driven Nexus line.
With respect to the 80 million month to month dynamic gadgets achievement, it probably won’t sound very amazing, yet note that Google is explicitly saying gadgets — not clients. That is on the grounds that numerous families most likely offer at least one TVs, so it’s difficult to tell the number of individuals Google really comes to with its item — particularly since Android TV doesn’t uphold different records. It’s likewise sketchy the amount of a distinction the Chromecast with Google TV made here since there’s a huge load of TVs that accompany Android TV pre-introduced.
Google additionally accepted the open door to remind watchers about Stream Transfer (for moving playback between cast gadgets on the fly) and Stream Expansion (for adding speakers to what exactly’s right now playing), the two of which have first carried out in 2019 and 2020, separately.
The organization stresses that it’s likewise conceivable to move streams from your Assistant speakers and presentations to your Android TV gadgets by basically saying “Hello Google, move this to [my TV].” It’s situating this as another capacity, yet it really reported that Stream Transfer would be viable with “Chromecast-empowered” TVs back in 2019. That makes us question that Stream Expansion is pristine to Android TVs, yet it’s completely conceivable we’ve recently never run into the requirement for it.
