Google has released some new software for its Google TV, in the form of the Android add on SDK for Google TV, which will allow developers to port their existing applications to Google TV and also create new ones.
When Google releases Honeycomb for Google TV, you will be able to use applications on your Google TV device just the way you do on your Android smartphone or tablet.
At Google I/O, we announced that Android Market is coming to Google TV. Today, we are excited to announce a preview of the Google TV add-on for the Android SDK. With the upcoming OS update to Honeycomb, Google TV devices will be Android compatible. That means developers can build great new Android apps for TV, optimize existing mobile or tablet apps for TV, and distribute those apps through Android Market.
Google is obviously hoping that bringing applications to Google TV will boost the platforms popularity, which has struggled to become popular, with many companies dropping the prices of their Google TV enabled devices.
