It was only a matter of time before Google\’s Android platform joined the television rumour game. However, unlike Apple\’s iOS before it, the recent batch of reports surrounding the search giant don\’t have Google making a physical television set of its own.
No, it\’s just a set-top box that we\’re all postulating about. At least, that\’s the rumour that\’s been thrown out by the brand-new tech news website The Information, which suggests that said set-top box — based on Android — will likely be available for purchase from Google in the first half of next year.
The device is said to be able to handle a number of different streaming services – think Hulu Plus, Netflix, YouTube (obviously), et cetera — and give a purchaser living room access to some gaming as well. As for just how powerful the set-top box will be, gaming-wise, we don\’t know just yet.
