What The New Google TV With Honeycomb Looks Like

In a Google I/O session to teach devs how to build apps for Google TV, Google previewed what the new Google TV with Honeycomb would look like. Specifically, it seems like the home screen is going to be more Honeycomb-ish and less TV-ish.

Of course, it doesn’t mean the old interface is dead (it could probably be launched on the icons on the dock) but it looks like Google TV will be embracing Honeycomb 3.1 as much as they can. In the Q&A portion of the session, they mentioned that notifications will show up on top of the UI of Google TV, the USB hosting of Android 3.1 Honeycomb may offer some interesting possibilities (though they haven’t tested it yet), and they’re also working on video chat support. Also, they’ve open sourced the Google TV Remote App for Android. [Google I/O via Engadget]
