Google TV

Google's first attempt at an integrated Web and smart TV platform. It was superseded by Android TV. Based on Android and the Chrome Web browser, Google TV let users surf the Web and run Android apps full screen or picture-in-picture. After its 2010 introduction, Blu-ray players and TVs incorporating Google TV slowly came to market, but it never took off.

Google TV to Chromecast to Android TV
The Google TV remote control was cumbersome for Web surfing, but a voice search was added to the remote control of the subsequent Android TV. In between the unveiling of both of these smart TV platforms, Google introduced a simple media streamer that relies on the user's mobile device for remote control (see Chromecast). See Android TV, Internet TV, smart TV and Google Fiber.
