Google TV is a software platform for set-top boxes and HDTVs based on the Android operating system and co-developed by Google, Intel, Sony and Logitech.The project was officially announced by Google and its partners on May 20, 2010.As of today, most TV vendors have their own technologies (for example Panasonic has Viera Cast) that allow limited Internet usage such as playing video from YouTube or viewing photos from Picasa. Google TV will offer a standardized platform for all such applications, and as an open-source platform, enable developers to create widgets for the system. Upon launching the service, Google stated that it would be updating the Android operating system to facilitate the development of web applications specifically for Google TV.The Google TV platform is expected to have fewer user restrictions than current systems.
