To smartphone owners out there, Android is starting to invade the living rooms. TV makers, like Sony, have embraced Google’s Android TV OS. Raise your eyebrows if you like, but you’re soon going to enjoy¬† Google on your television. And here are just some of the reasons why.

Conservative Design

Unlike other smart TV platforms, Android TV services are not built around icons that can be found along the bottom of your TV screen, occupying precious screen space. The service icons will only appear if you press the ‘Home’ button in your Sony remote control, which will take to a page showing a carousel of YouTube and Google videos. Scanning down, you will find a row of Sony Select services, links to Google Play Store, Music and Movies, YouTube, Netflix, and many more. Scrolling down further and you will see a list of Sony TV’s input and settings. Everything is conservatively done.
