The improvements to Logitech Revue with this new version of Google TV include more entertainment choices such as access to the Android Market; faster and more comprehensive search and browse capabilities; a simplified user interface, and improvements to the Logitech Media Player.

The updated Logitech Revue with Google TV experience combines TV with the Web and Android Apps, all on your HDTV, bringing more entertainment options to your home theater. For example, the updated TV & Movies app allows people to easily search, watch, and even rate more than 80,000 movies and TV episodes from cable, Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube.

In addition, the update to Logitech Revue gives you access to the Android Market on your HDTV, which includes hundreds of apps, such as the new Google Music app, and around 50 apps optimized specifically for the TV. And you can expect the number of apps to increase over time. Also, the updated Google Chrome browser brings full search capabilities to your HDTV, along with keyboard navigation and support for Adobe Flash player version 10.2.

The improved Logitech Media Player application delivers access to your personal content - including photos, downloaded music files and home videos - stored on a PC, Mac or media server connected to your home network. Plus, the free Logitech Media Server software also helps organize your media, making your libraries of music, movies and photos only a few keystrokes away, and searchable through the Quick Search Box on Google TV.

And finally, you can customize the home bar, which discretely appears at the bottom of the TV screen, with your favorite shortcuts so you get to where you want to go as quickly as possible.

The Android 3.1 update is currently available. It is free, and available to all Logitech Revue units that are turned on and connected to the Web.
