Google Stadia Coming To Android TV

The Google Stadia video game streaming service is set to come to the Android TV platform.

At the Game Developer Conference earlier this year, Google announced its ambitious cloud gaming service that’s cross-platform and really low-latency. At launch, you’ll be able to stream nearly 40 games at up to [email protected] from Google’s cloud servers to 2018 or 2019 Pixel smartphones, the Google Chrome browser, or the Chromecast Ultra, though Google plans to expand support to more Android smartphones and Android TV.

Android TV roadmap in 2020 and 2021

At the International Broadcasting Convention, Google unveiled its roadmap for Android TV in 2020 and 2021. In synthesis is the following:

  • Android 11 R/2020
    • Assistant for Operators GA more partners & i18n.
    • Assistant farfield reference designs, improved x-device targeting.
    • Hero device advancing next-gen smart home UX, e.g. Lens, Camera.
    • Expand home screen and instream ads offering.
    • Stadia integration.
    • Reference video broadcast.
    • 8.0k Apps.
  • Android 12 S/2021 & beyond
    • Assistant for Operators: continuously improve quality, i18n and operator integrations.
    • Hero device program advancing next-generation.
    • Continue to lower TTM/TCO & expand monetization options.
    • Less fragmentation in HW + SW solutions, fewer builds.
    • Hold the line on memory & power, critical user journeys.
    • Continuous performance monitoring of production devices.
    • 8.0-10k Apps.
Google Stadia Is Coming To Android TV 1

So Stadia is confirmed for Android TV too and to come to think of the Nvidia Shield TV 2019 that is expected to hit the markets soon, it all makes sense! Stadia for the Android 11 OS launch in 2020. On the current Android 10 platform instead Stadia launches in November 2019. I hope that this doesn’t change Nvidia’s plans and postpones the launch of the new Shield TV for 2020.

Bad news also is that the same TV OS update is set to “expand home screen and instream ads offering”. So more advertisements is the price to pay for convenient gaming streams. Let’s hope in a better way than the previously ad showing on some Sony TVs some months earlier this year.

More Than 10 Thousands Apps in 2021

And if you are wondering about the 8.0k Apps and 10k Apps, that is not a new resolution standard, that is Google’s prediction of the total amount of the apps that should be available on the Android TV Play Store. So that is also a very exciting move too.

You may have wondered how is it possible for Netflix to have such an amazing production line-up of original shows. The answer is obvious for some but no-one could have really guessed how many subscribers can Netflix have. In the past year (that is 2016), Netflix has expanded to even more countries getting close to deliver awesomeness on almost every country on the planet! The image below (courtesy of Netflix) shows where exactly Netflix is available. It may be that in some countries some specific shows do not appear due to copyright laws, which was one of the toughest problems Netflix faced, but for more or less a subscriber in New Delhi a can watch the same episode as a subscriber in New York.

NEW NVIDIA SHIELD

Starting from January 15th the brand-new NVIDIA Shield will start shipping! It has been announced today by the NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang at CES 2017, who also revealed the new name: from NVIDIA Shield TV now it will be called just NVIDIA Shield. Quite honestly, that was the name that everyone called it already to be fair. The new Shield aesthetically seems to be exactly the same but smaller, way smaller! Also the main specs do not seem to differ that much. It seems that will come with the same Tegra X1 processor and the GPU will always be a 256-core but it is unclear whether it would be the Maxwell GPU as before. 3 Gb of RAM, Dual Band AC WiFi and included gamepad (new design, see below) & remote control with microphone for voice control and audio output that if sold separately (like now for the NVIDIA Shield TV) costs $59. The new NVIDIA Shield will be powered by Android N Nougat! Read more

Great also the design of the box, somehow different from what we usually expect. It has dented sides and a slick, glossy surface on the top as a stripe. All black and great quality of the plastics, give the Alfawise H96 Pro+ a very elegant and distinguish look. Read more
