Designing For TV – Google TV


There are several noteworthy changes:

  • The sizes of all the fonts and buttons were increased
  • The “selected” item or item with the mouse over it is clearly highlighted
  • The user can navigate intuitively around the page using D-pad up/down/left/right motions
  • Additional padding has been added between all elements on the page
  • Darker or slightly muted colors have been chosen to suit TVs that are generally tuned to be brighter
