Sony Google TV brings HTTP Live Streaming, more

More details of the Google TV update that started rolling out earlier this week to compatible Sony hardware have been revealed on Thursday thanks to GigaOM. Basically Android 3.2, the update now enables hardware acceleration for apps, which should make animated titles much smoother. More importantly, HTTP Live Streaming will now be possible, making viewing HTML5 web videos better and allowing streaming local multimedia files through dedicated apps.

The Chrome browser will get a slight redesign and better performance. Developers will have an easier go at making program guides thanks to the new way Google TV identifies channels.

Revue owners are likely to have the update soon.

With Android 3.2 now on the Google TV platform, the next big update is expected to be Android 4.0, which is expected to arrive before year's end. In the meantime, smaller updates are expected that will focus on app support.
