What is the difference between AOSP and Android TV?

Feb 28, 2023 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

AOSP (Android Open Source Project) and Android TV are both related to the Android operating system, but they serve different purposes.

AOSP is the open-source version of the Android operating system, which is the software that runs on millions of smartphones, tablets, and other devices worldwide. AOSP is the codebase that Google releases to the public, and it’s free for anyone to use, modify, and distribute. AOSP includes the core components of Android, such as the kernel, libraries, and the runtime environment, but it doesn’t include the Google Mobile Services (GMS), such as the Google Play Store, Gmail, Google Maps, and other proprietary apps.

On the other hand, Android TV is a version of Android that is specifically designed for televisions and media streaming devices. Android TV includes a customized user interface that is optimized for big screens, as well as a set of pre-installed apps that are tailored for TV viewing, such as Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, and others. Android TV also supports voice search and control, and it can integrate with Google Assistant and other smart home devices.

While Android TV is built on top of AOSP, it’s a separate platform with its own unique features and requirements. Android TV devices are certified by Google to ensure that they meet certain hardware and software standards, and they come with a remote control and support for HDMI-CEC, which allows users to control multiple devices with a single remote.

In summary, AOSP is the open-source codebase of the Android operating system, while Android TV is a version of Android that is tailored for televisions and media streaming devices, with a customized user interface, pre-installed apps, and support for voice control and integration with other smart home devices.

what is the price different for them ?

AOSP is a free and open-source project, which means that it’s available for anyone to download, use, modify, and distribute without any cost. However, it’s important to note that AOSP doesn’t include the Google Mobile Services (GMS), such as the Google Play Store, Gmail, Google Maps, and other proprietary apps. If you want to include GMS in your Android-based device, you need to obtain a license from Google and pay the associated fees.

On the other hand, Android TV is a commercial product that is licensed by Google to TV manufacturers and other hardware vendors. The cost of licensing Android TV varies depending on the manufacturer and the specific device configuration. Typically, the licensing fees for Android TV are higher than the fees for AOSP, due to the additional features and optimizations that Android TV includes.

It’s worth noting that the cost of licensing Android TV is not necessarily passed on to the end-users. The price of an Android TV device is determined by the manufacturer, and it depends on various factors such as the screen size, resolution, hardware specifications, and brand. In general, Android TV devices can range from relatively affordable streaming boxes and sticks to high-end smart TVs with advanced features and premium prices.
