When it first launched, Google TV was a mess. It didn’t work as well as it should have and sales were incredibly weak. Things are starting to turn around though, thanks to a series of updates to the platform. The latest update brings a bit of functionality to all of Sony’s Google TV products, but the big change comes to the Google TV Blu-ray player.
All devices will be getting faster Chrome browsing, but Sony’s Google TV Blu-ray player will be getting the ability to play 3D Blu-rays. It’s not the first time Sony has added 3D playback to a Blu-ray player -- the PlayStation 3 got it last year -- but it’s a significant update for the player that should bring a bit more attention to the platform.
