Following the success of the Chromecast and Google TV, Google is renewing its efforts in the living room by announcing Android TV. Running on Google's just-announced Android L, Android TV will stream content from various sources, just like Google TV and set top boxes, but with an added focus on gaming.
Google showed off the LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live, and Moto 360 smartwatches running its Android Wear software at Google I/O today. LG and Samsung's devices will be available for order on the Google Play Store later today, while Motorola's watch will launch later this year.
