Google released a preview android programming tool plug-in today which enables a developer to write apps for Google TV devices. With the upcoming OS update to Honeycomb, Google TV will be Android compatible. This will help the programmers to build apps, optimize existing phone or tablet apps and distribute these apps to the android market. A plug-in in the android market will help ease the transition for programmers. It will help them to test their apps to check whether it fits the big screen and whether any tweaks are required.
As of now, there’s no word on when the SDK plug-in will be released in final form or when Google TV products will be able to carry Honeycomb, the tablet specific version of Android.
