Google has taken another solid step in perfecting the Android ecosystem. Today Google released an Android 10 system update for Android TV, introducing the Android API Level 29, which Google describes as a “performance and security update based on Android 10.” In addition, developers will get a new Android TV device, ADT-3.
This update introduces TLS 1.3 by default and provides greater security by encrypting user data than previous Versions of Android. The update is also giving developers more confidence in Google’s push for Android TV.
With this update, Google will also offer developers a new device called ADT-3. The ADT-3 is a “developer-facing streaming device” and Google says the ADT-3 will be “available to developers in the coming months and available online through OEM partners.” “
The ADT-3 comes with a quad-core A53 chipset, 2GB DDR3 memory (RAM) and 4Kp60 HDR HDMI 2.1 output. In addition to what Google calls “through OEM partners,” Google has made it clear that it is specifically for developers and will not be sold through the Google Store.
