Android TV 12 adds refresh rate switching and a 4K interface

Some new features are coming to Android TV. The new version – Android TV 12 – is on the way, but the third beta version has just been released to developers. And it shows off what us viewers can expect.

First up, refresh rate switching. Different content displays at different frame rates, but thanks to refresh rate switching, Android TV 12 can display the content at the optimal refresh rate. You can control the feature yourself using the Match Content Frame Rate setting, while apps can now tell if your device supports seamless rate switching (Android TV 12 supports non-seamless rate switching too).
