Available in the third quarter, the update will enable Owners of the LG Google TVs to enjoy more applications, including games that provide a greater level of interactivity and advanced graphics.
In addition to boosting overall performance, the latest Jelly Bean update supports the Android Native Development Kit (NDK), so LG Google TV owners can have a diverse selection of apps to choose from. Smartphone apps designed using the NDK will run on LG Google TV with little to no modifications. With NDK compatibility, users can now play more games on the bigger LG Google TV screen.
Users will also benefit from LG's remote control options, which will make it easier to interact with the content available on LG Google TV. In addition to the functionality of its Magic Remote Qwerty, LG will introduce a free remote control app that can turn any Android smartphone or tablet into a two-handed, touch-sensitive game controller.
The latest update will also include LG's patented "3D Game Changer" - a feature that produces an effect by displaying 2D games in enhanced 3D mode, for an effect previously available only in movies filmed with 3D equipment.
Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean will be available as an over-the-air download for existing LG Google TVs in the United States starting in the third quarter.
