In Line with Apple, Google Debuts TV, Auto and Health Platforms at I/O

By 2022, half of US households with a broadband internet connection will own at least one smart home device, up from about 12 percent in 2014, according to research from Parks Associates—a figure that does not include connected TVs, set-top boxes and gaming consoles.

Speaking of set-top boxes, Google made a third play for the TV screen with the announcement of Android TV, a platform that combines the functionality of Android apps and Google Play with live TV. While it's not quite a set-top box (yet), Google said it's partnering with Sony and Sharp to develop Android TV-supported TV sets and gaming set-top boxes with Razer and Asus.
