Logitech will begin delivering a free update of the Android 3.1 platform to Logitech Revue with Google TV companion boxes.
The free software update will be delivered over-the-air (OTA) to current Logitech Revue customers over the next few days. New customers are expected to receive this version automatically upon activation. The improvements to Logitech Revue with this new version of Google TV include more entertainment choices such as access to the Android Market; faster and more comprehensive search and browse capabilities; a simplified user interface, and improvements to the Logitech Media Player. To receive the update, simply turn on your Logitech Revue and follow the easy update instructions.
In addition, the update to Logitech Revue gives you access to the Android Market on your HDTV, which includes apps, such as the new Google Music app, and around 50 apps optimized specifically for the TV. Also, the updated Google Chrome browser brings full search capabilities to your HDTV, along with keyboard navigation and support for Adobe Flash player version 10.2.
The improved Logitech Media Player application delivers smooth access to personal content ? including photos, downloaded music files and home videos ? stored on a PC, Mac or media server connected to your home network. Plus, the free Logitech Media Server software also helps organize your media, making your libraries of music, movies and photos only a few keystrokes away, and searchable through the Quick Search Box on Google TV.
The updated Logitech Revue with Google TV will also be available to existing and prospective subscribers of DISH Network?s service in the United States.
The update of the Android 3.1 Honeycomb OS to Logitech Revue with Google TV begins on December 7. Most users should expect to see the update on their devices over the coming week. It is free, and available to all Logitech Revue units that are turned on and connected to the Web.
