Via the Google TV blog, the Android 3.0 update for Google’s smart TV platform is ready to go. The new release features improvements in four key areas, everything from a simplified and easy-to-use user interface to the inclusion of the Android Market for access to more apps than ever. Other tent-pole elements of the new software include a new “TV & Movies” app for browsing shows and movies from your channel lineup, Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, and more. Speaking of YouTube, video streaming is better than ever with an enhanced Google TV experience and deeper integration.
The update will be available first to Sony Google TV products starting early next week. Logitech devices will receive the update shortly after. This may explain the sticker found on the Revue’s packaging as of yesterday, though it is still unclear if hardware is shipping with the new update out-of-the-box.
