Today January 6th of 2016 Google announced that Android TV and Google cast for audio devices would be receiving more partners on their respective platforms. With 88% of electronics shipped in 2015 being internet connected having partners on board with platforms is more important than ever. Now you’ve got even more options to find the device that’s right for you. If you’re looking for a new TV, you can select an Android TV from Sony, Sharp and Philips. Later this year, Android TV will be available from Arcelik, Vestel, RCA, Hisense, TCL and Bang & Olufsen. And, for our users in Indonesia, Linknet now has an Android TV offering. Watch out for 2016 it’s going to be a busy and exciting year for the Android TV platform!
In addition multi room synchronization for chromecast audio is coming to Google cast enabled speakers as well, allowing mixing and matching. Hopefully this can come to Android TV as well at a future date.
