Android 10 is finally making its way to Android TV. Back in September this year, Google released the Android 10 for smartphones. And now, it is finally coming to Android TV.
The new Android TV update, unlike its counterpart on smartphones, doesn’t include any notable interface-level changes. But, Google says that the latest version does bring the API level 29 and some of the key performance and security updates that are available to smartphones running Android 10. A new developer-focused Android TV dongle called ADT-3 has also been introduced that is based on Android 10.
Google has released the Android 10 for TV and published a post announcing its release. In the official post by Google, the tech giant mentioned that the Android 10 update for Android TV devices brings new performance and security enhancements. The search giant has also shown its excitement for Project Treble that will bring speedier Android updates to Android TV devices.
As mentioned above, Google has revealed ADT-3 as its new streaming dongle running the latest Android TV software. The dongle includes a quad-core Cortex-A53 SoC, paired with 2GB of DDR3 RAM. It also comes with a 4Kp60 HDR HDMI 2.1 output.
The arrival of the ADT-3 dongle would help developers design experiences for the new Android TV version and test its features ahead of the public rollout on third-party devices.
Google says that the ADT-3 dongle will be available to developers for purchase through an unspecified OEM partner “in the coming months.” However, details around the price and the manufacturer of the device are unknown.
As of now, Google didn’t mention any specific date for the rollout of Android 10 on Android TVs. So, we can believe that the original equipment manufacturers will bring the latest version of Android on their hardware.
