Despite Google TV’s shortcomings, the Internet giant is still fully dedicated to the platform and will announce an update at its annual developer conference this week, Fox News reports. The publication’s sources claim the company’s latest update will combine live TV listings with Netflix and DVR content, in an effort to put content first and the source second. Other hardware manufacturers will reportedly announce an Apple-like AirPlay feature that can stream content from Android 4.0 powered smartphones. Google’s Developer support pages also indicates that the Mountain View-based company will make it easier for third party developers to get their apps on television sets through various learning sessions. Google continues to add partners to its TV platform, Sony on Monday announced its latest Google TV offering, the NSZ-GS7 Internet Player with Google TV, will be available on July 22nd for $199. It is likely that the set-top box will see the update later this summer.
