TechRadars sister site TechCrunch is reporting that Google is adding music to Google’s upcoming Android TV set-top box, which is expected to debut sometime in 2017.
Google says it will add the feature to the Google TV app sometime next year, but the official announcement is not yet scheduled.
The app, which Google has been testing on Android TV for a while now, will let users browse music, play songs, and record videos on their TVs.
It’s unclear if this will be a standalone app, a Google TV-specific app, or both.
Google TV is Google’s attempt to compete with Amazon’s Echo and Amazon’s Fire TV streaming devices, which offer similar functionality but aren’t supported by the streaming platform itself.
Both of these devices are available for pre-order for $79.99, but Google has not yet revealed any specific pricing information.
The Chromecast is a slightly different kind of streaming device, which will reportedly offer “high-quality, full-HD video playback, along with local access for your Android TV or Google TV device.”
It also features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a microSD slot, but no USB Type-C port.
