Google moves closer to home entertainment market

Google is all set to bridge the gap between Google and your TV. It recently released a new gadget for Google Desktop called Google Media Server allows you to take content found on your computer or any of the online Google services like YouTube and Picasa Web Albums and shares it with UPnP compatible devices like the PS3.

It uses Google Desktop technology such as Desktop gadgets for the administration tool and Google Desktop Search to locate media files. All you need is a PC running Google Desktop and a UPnP-enabled device (e.g. a PlayStation 3).

With this release Google moves closer to an area of the home entertainment market coveted by Microsoft and Apple.

Both companies have software within their respective operating systems for connecting a Windows Vista PC and Mac, respectively, to a TV. More details on the Google Media Server can be found here.
