Amazon launched its Fire TV and soon after it Google has reported that they would be launching  their own set-top box. Google is close for launching its Android TV box which will compete with its counterparts in the market which includes Fire TV, Roku and Apple TV. Google has plan to sell its Chromecast TV device  at a price of $35 which can be plugged into any high-definition Television (HDTV) which would allow users to watch online videos from their Smart phones and Tablets.

Video application developers are working very hard to  build the app for Android TV, moreover Android TV would also let the users to play games on their HDTV big screens, as the device would be coming with the game controller much like the one which is with Fire TV.

Android TV is aimed at converting your big screen into smart phone, revealed by a document by THE VERGE.  Android TV is actually an entertainment interface for users, as it is totally about enjoying you content, games, apps, and videos on bigger screens with giving more rooms to the pixels.

The documents also says that accessing your content would be simple and magical. Android TV would support the voice commands and it was also disclosed that special attention was being paid to make content highly accessible,  it would take hardly 3 clicks for user to go from home screen to playing content.

Coming to the interface, as the device is not launched so it is very difficult to say anything about it. But still according to some photos and leaks, the main interface would include cards for movies, shows, apps and games.  All will be placed on the virtual shelf and user would be  having a remote control to access the content.  Some SCREENSHOTS from the Google Android TV shows that the Google main apps would also be included like Google Maps, Hangouts and YouTube etc.  Moreover some outside sources would also be inboxed like Hulu Netflix and Pandora etc.

As Google is domination g the search engines world and its mobile operating system is also second to none, it is a great business step for them to get involved and paced up with the mobile communications.
