Conjuring up images of the second-gen Chromecast streaming adapter but packed with a UI and other capabilities, Google used this week’s I/O developer’s conference to introduce an Android TV streaming dongle for developers that supports both 4K and HDR, Engadget and other media outlets reported Tuesday.
The device, called the ADT-2, supports Google Assistant and gives developers a way to kick the tires on the next-gen Android TV P operating system.
Android Police reported that the dongle for developers, called the ADT-2, contains the same chip as the Amazon Fire TV 4K dongle and packs 2 gigabytes of RAM and 8 GB of storage.
Developers can sign up for the limited edition device here.
In addition to serving as a platform for retail streaming devices and smart TVs, Android TV has increasingly become a focus for pay TV providers and for suppliers that have developed next-gen platforms tailored for MVPDs.
