What is Google TV?
Google TV essentially integrates applications and the internet
directly into your television. It brings basic elements such as
search or web browsing and goes as far as combining both web and TV
The most important element of Google TV is its search bar.
Essentially it brings together all the information, programs,
internet, and media surrounding whatever you search for. So programs
currently or soon to be shown will appear alongside imdb or Google
search results as well as any media or recordings you might have.
The search bar negates the need for a TV guide as well and helps to
enrich any programs you might be interested in by offering related
websites and other online info.
Internet connected applications will also form a central part
of Google TV. Much of what can be found on the Android operating
system will be translated across to Google TV. Applications like
Twitter and Amazon will be the first to appear on the hardware with
the Android market eventually arriving on the platform early next
year. Google also plans to make use of both the iPhone and Android
powered handsets to act as a remote for Google TV. Voice search will
allow you to use your mobile handsets microphone for input, creating
search results by simply speaking into your phone.
A full web browser is also included in the Google TV package,
meaning much of your surfing can be done on the television. The
browser is Flash Player 10.1 compatible so video websites or
slideshows on Flickr will be viewable. Television programs can be
viewed simultaneously as picture-in-picture whenever the browser or
applications are run.
As with any exciting new technology, it isn’t always clear what it actually does.
The goal of Google TV is to turn television and web into a seamless
experience, giving you access to online content and videos from the
comfort of your living room.
Google puts it this way: the traditional way to watch a
television show is to wait for it to air on a network, meaning you
change your schedule to match that of the show you want to watch. The
internet breaks that barrier, allowing you to watch shows whenever
you feel like through outlets like Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube.
With Google TV, you can watch online content out of the
confined space of your computer’s monitor and instead play it on your TV
““ together with standard TV content.
Searching and Browsing
Google TV will include a powerful search engine (of course) so
you can easily find the shows you’re looking for without browsing
through lists and guides. When you find a show you want to watch or
subscribe to, you can quickly add it to your home screen which makes
it just like a traditional TV channel. Google TV merges content from
sources like Netflix, YouTube, sports websites, and many other sources
along with your traditional television content, so everything is
available in one central location.
A full version of Google’s Chrome
browser will also be included with Google TV, so you can browse the
internet just like you would on your computer. You’ll also have access
to your photos and web applications like Pandora.
is exciting news for Android fans: Google TV will include the Android
Market so you can download and install Android apps right to your
television. Beyond that, you can use your Android phone as the remote control for your TV, including voice search.
Popular Android applications like Google Listen will be updated
to provide many more features for Google TV. The best part about
including the Android Market is that new features will constantly be
added to your TV, as we’ve seen with Android phones.
Multitasking is a big deal for most people, and Google TV will
not disappoint. With this software, you’ll be able to watch a TV show
in the corner of your screen while browsing the internet with Chrome.
Google TV will also be able to interact with hardware you already own
like a DVR to schedule recording of TV shows while you continue to
watch TV as usual.
Automatic Subtitles (with translations)
Using Google’s tremendous translation and voice transcription
resources, Google TV will be able to automatically generate subtitles
for content and even translate those subtitles to your native language
(as long as Google supports the language).
Since it includes Android software, the sky is the limit for
what developers can do ““ I expect dozens of new features to appear
after the Google TV Android Market opens.
