Epson unveils new mini laser projector with Android TV and Netflix support

Epson unveils new mini laser projector with Android TV and Netflix support

There are not many projectors with Android TV built-in ⁠— we reviewed the Anker Nebula Capsule II and XGIMI Mogo and walked away impressed by them, but didn't like that neither of them has any official support for Netflix. Though you can always sideload the Netflix mobile app, it can be difficult to control and quite janky. The newly announced Epson EF-100 projector isn't quite comparable to those two ⁠— with no battery, it's not very portable ⁠— but it's the first Android TV projector we've come across with official Netflix support, and that's pretty exciting.

Google Assistant on Android TV gains support for Hindi and Vietnamese (Update: Swedish)

Google Assistant on Android TV gains support for Hindi and Vietnamese (Update: Swedish)

The Google Assistant may be a polyglot among its AI-powered virtual brethren, but what mars the experience is its lingual inconsistency across supported platforms. Even though it’s been conversing in Hindi and Vietnamese on phones for long, the support for Android TV was just added. The two Asian languages join a small list of languages that the Assistant can understand and speak on your big screen.

Google releases Android TV 10, fulfilling promise for 2019 rollout

Google releases Android TV 10, fulfilling promise for 2019 rollout

Android TV releases have always lagged behind the smartphone OS, but usually only by a month or two. Android 9 Pie took a while to arrive on Android TV devices, and Google promised in September that Android TV 10 would be ready by the end of 2019. True to its word, the company is now giving version 10 its seal of approval and shipping it out to OEMs.

Google reveals ADT-3 Android TV box with 4K and HDR, but it's only for developers

Google reveals ADT-3 Android TV box with 4K and HDR, but it's only for developers

Ever since the Nexus Player fell out of support, there hasn't been a first-party Android TV box — at least not for regular buyers. The ADT-2 was released last year as a budget Chromecast-like dongle, supporting 4K and HDR, but it was only intended for developers creating Android TV apps. Alongside the announcement of Android TV 10, Google has also revealed a new ADT-3 streaming box.

XGIMI MoGo Pro review: A convenient but expensive 1080p portable Android TV projector

XGIMI MoGo Pro review: A convenient but expensive 1080p portable Android TV projector

A few weeks ago, I reviewed the XGIMI MoGo, a device that belongs to a rare breed of portable projectors with Android TV. A more expensive version, the MoGo Pro, is now available. It keeps most of the same specs and features, but ups the resolution to 1080p instead of 540p, and raises the brightness from 210 to 300 ANSI Lumens. The result is a sharper, slightly brighter image that makes this the best Android TV projector currently available. Whether it's worth the price hike, though, is a different story.

This portable Android TV projector from XGIMI is down to $340 ($60 off)

Portable projectors have been the fantasy of entertainment enthusiasts for decades. Over the past years, the image quality, tech, and price have become better and more reasonable, but most devices either run a sloppy OS or don't run one at all. If you want a TV-centric platform on your portable projector, you should consider this XGIMI MoGo projector, which comes with Android TV and is now down from $400 to $340 on Amazon.
