Google confirms the new Android TV version will be releasing through its TV OEM channels in the coming months. We’re not sure about the models that will support the new version. But we’re hoping the likes of Xiaomi, Vu, Realme, and Sony among others cater to a wide range of their existing smart TV lineup. Google has found it hard to focus on both mobile and TV version of Android over the years. But a launch timeline similar to Android 11 for mobile this year bodes well for the future of smart TV powered by Android.

Google finally announced Android 11 officially after months of developer previews and betas.
