Google wants to promote the use of Android tablets and has launched a service — Entertainment Space — that brings together books, games, and videos designed to be consumed on this type of device.
When we talk about tablets, it looks like the iPad seems that it does not have any type of rival at any level. The only Android tablets that are sold more or less normally are the exceptionally cheap ones, such as the Amazon Fire, tablets designed for multimedia consumption, and nothing else.
Part of the fault for this situation is Google, which has not paid much attention to these devices when updating Android. This seems to be starting to change with the new announcement.
Google has created Entertainment Space, a function that will begin to be available on Walmart tablets and that will reach more models from various manufacturers in the second half of the year.
It is a content hub to be able to consume them from Android tablets. There will be videos, books, or games, although in theory, all of this was already available from the Google Play Store or its different applications.
The positive part is that it will be integrated with services that we have, such as streaming, to offer us personalized suggestions. Entertainment Space will probably turn out to be a one-off that might not even make its way to better tablets that you should actually buy.
