Google making Android TV more of a priority?

Righting wrongs
The changes coming to Android TV are an attempt to fix many of the problem areas I described above.

To attract developers, Google is releasing a cheap Android TV dongle, codenamed the ADT-2. It won't be available to consumers, but a limited number of app makers can get one for free.
According to Android Police, Google has spent the last year making performance a priority so that Android TV can run on cheaper hardware. That report says Google wants Android TV to appear on more streaming boxes, and expects several of those devices to launch later this year.
Also from that report: Google is developing "turnkey" software and hardware, allowing other companies to bring new Android TV devices to market faster and deliver more frequent software updates.
Google is partnering with JBL on an interesting hardware idea: a soundbar that doubles as an Android TV streaming box.
These commitments won't fix everything that's wrong with Android TV. Google still hasn't announced any of its own Android TV hardware, akin to its Pixel smartphones and Pixelbook laptop, and if that doesn't change, it's unclear if other vendors will do a good enough job of carrying the platform forward.
