Android TV version 12 should be released sometime later this year, but the exact date is not yet known.Not much is known about new features either.
Android TV will be familiar to most people as either the OS that their smart TV runs on, or as the OS of some cheap Chinese set-top box. In either case, the versions installed on these devices often lags a bit behind on what Google considers recent. Android TV 12 will also most likely not appear on televisions this year. Sony, Philips and TCL, for example, have already announced that their 2022 models will run on version 10 or 11. One of the novelties that version 12 should offer is variable refresh rates and new accessibility options.
