We all know that Google TV isn’t doing too well. Their set top boxes aren’t exactly flying off the shelves, and broadcast services haven’t exactly been knocking on Google’s doors to offer content. Well, things might change soon. According to reports, Google is now working on a new version of Google TV and will be introducing it at Google I/O event later this month.
The new and improved Google TV is rumored to have certain features such as faster performance (the new Google TV should run on a faster chip), a revamped user interface for an improved user experience, and most importantly – Android Market for apps specifically designed for Google TV.
Through Android Market, users will have an easier time locating apps for the set top box, and developers will have the opportunity to come up with new types of apps. After all, a lot of Smart TVs now come with the ability to Skype and Tweet, Google will probably be implementing Gmail, Google Talk, and Google Voice into their TV service as well. There’s no confirmation if any such announcements are going to happen, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed. After all, Google could do well with a boost to their Google TV set top box sales.
