The TV version of Android 12 has officially passed beta testing; Google released the Android 12 on its Pixel devices earlier this year. The company announced the official release of Android 12 on November 30; implying that the upgrade will soon be available on your smart TVs.
When viewing the interface on 4K TVs, the Android TV 12 renders the user interface in 4K resolution. The interface was previously only limited to 1080p; but when you pick something to watch, it changes to 4K, producing “lag.”
Moreover, the new Android version for TVs also brings background blurring to “simply increase the visual distinction of multiple UI levels.” Additionally, there is a new refresh rate setting for a “smoother viewing experience”. Depending on what’s being viewed, applications can additionally check playback settings and modify frame rates. In addition to that, Google has also included HDMI CEC 2.0 support.
