    Google TV was a smart TV platform from Google co-developed by Intel, Sony, and Logitech that was launched in October 2010[1] with official devices initially made by Sony and Logitech.[2] Google TV integrates the Android operating system and the Google Chrome web browser to create an interactive television overlay on top of existing online video sites to add a 10-foot user interface, for a smart TV experience.

    Google TV's first generation devices were all based on x86 architecture processors and were created and commercialized by Sony and Logitech. The second generation of devices are all based on ARM architecture processors and with additional partners including LG, Samsung,[3] Vizio and Hisense. In 2013, more second generation Google TV-supported devices were announced by new partners, including Hisense, Netgear, TCL, and Asus, some of which including 3D video support.

    Google TV was succeeded in June 2014 by Android TV, a new platform which shares closer ties with the Android platform (in particular, Android 5.0) and has a revamped user experience integrating with Knowledge Graph, and providing casting support from mobile devices.[4] While a "small subset" of Google TV devices will be upgraded to the Android TV platform, the majority will not. In June 2014, the Google TV SDK was pulled, ending any future software development for existing devices and effectively deprecating the platform.[5]
