Logitech Revue gets Google TV 2 upgrade
About six weeks after first previewed, the Google TV 2.0 update for the Logitech Revue has started reaching users. Those on the official forums mention getting the interface revamp over-the-air starting at least late Monday and were expected to get it in force late Tuesday. Although some adopters were skeptical, calls to Logitech confirmed that they had been given the all-clear to send the Android 3.1-based update to Revues.
Like regular Android phone and tablet updates, the deployment should arrive in phases if not available through a manual check.
Google TV 2.0 brings in a full app platform with access to Android Market. The interface itself is simpler and cuts back on interruptions of live content. A radically improved search and better YouTube watching with subscriptions are part of the update as it's going out in current form.
An after-the-fact addition of Google Music for Google TV now lets the Revue and Sony hardware officially stream cloud-stored music for the first time.
