One month after the launch of Android 12 on the Pixel 6, Google officially announces the arrival of its new Android TV 12, an Operating System designed for televisions. 
At present Android TV 12 is only available as a beta version for developers. To download it, you will therefore need an ADT-3 dongle. If it is already the case, the update should be done automatically. Otherwise, it is still possible to install it manually by flashing the system image on the TV.

If we don't have an ADT-3 dongle? don't worry! According to the information, this version is expected to be released globally via OTA only in 2022, reaching both Chromecast and other devices compatible with Android TV, but the company has not yet released the update schedule, information that should appear in the next few weeks.
