What is Android TV?

Android TV is the TV operating system that Google develops in-house for digital media players and it is a smart entertainment platform. It was first announced in June 2014, as a successor to the Google TV.
An Android TV device is a kind of set-top box or smart TV which runs the Android TV operating system. Through the Android TV, users access various digital media player platforms, on-demand video apps and network TV shows. Unlike Google TV, it features a user interface designed around content discovery and voice search, surfacing content aggregated from various media apps and services.
