An update of Android 8 Oreo for Sony's various smart TVs will be released in Europe from Wednesday. Only TVs running Android TV and released in 2018, 2017 or in the second half of 2016, will receive an update.
Sony says it will release an update for Android 8 Oreo in stages, so a new version of Android TV may not be available to everyone at once. The update should automatically be downloaded via TV in the coming weeks, although the update can also be implemented via usb.
The update ensures that Sony TVs running Android TV are equipped with a new home screen on which each service or application can receive its own channel. In addition, users can hide applications, and you can adjust the vertical order of the various channels. Sony reports that the update also offers a solution for eliminating noise when displaying Dolby Vision content from Netflix. VP9 Profile 2 codec is now also supported, so YouTube videos are now also displayed with hdr.
The manufacturer releases an update for Android 8 Oreo for TVs, which appeared in 2018, 2017 and in the second half of 2016. Televisions that hit the market in early 2016 or in 2015 seem to be out of control. Sony says nothing about whether or not users of these old TVs are fishing behind the net.
