Android TV is a kind o f TV Boxes, and it is the Google-developed version of Android, specifically for TV’s and stand-alone digital media players, like set-top boxes and related streaming devices. It was announced at Google’s I/O conference in 2014 as a successor to its not-particularly-successful smart TV platform Google TV. It allows OEM’s to add advanced interactive TV capabilities to their devices, with a minimum of development time. To have Android TV function as shown at I/O 2017, you’ll need access to a lot of proprietary software not found in AOSP. To use this proprietary software, you will need to license it from Google. Mecool M8S PRO W and Mecool M8S PRO L are two hot models we know that come with Android TV OS.
Android TV normally come with Google Assistant integrated, and Google Assistant’s slogan is “Make Google do it“.
