As part of its Google I/O 2014 conference, the company has released a new video that shows how Android will soon find itself on many devices, including televisions, smartwatches and cars in addition to smartphones and tablets.

The two minute video shows a man waking up in his home and starting the day with a glance at his Android smartphone to check the weather. He then gets in a quick run outside with his dog, wearing a Android Wear smartwatch. After he gets home, he uses his Android tablet to look up a recipe.

Then he and his dog get into his car, which has an Android OS-based dashboard. He arrives at a park to attend a dog show and films his pet going through an obstacle course with his Android smartphone. Finally, that footage of the dog show is projected on a big screen Android TV at the end of the clip.

Google clearly is trying to show that Android is being developed as more than an operating system for smartphones and can be used as the basis for all sorts of electronic devices.

Stay tuned as our coverage of Google I/O 2014 will continue today and all this week.

Great video would've loved to see him tell his watch to set his Nest thermostat and turn on his Dropcams!

While this sounds awesome haven't we been down this path before? Google promising it will be everywhere, but nothing ever comes from it.

Saddest movie ever when that happens. That's my main reason why I can't watch that movie anymore!

I can't watch that movie anymore because it's no good. Old Yeller would've been more sad to watch with your dog.

This may be a little (ok, a lot) off topic, but does anyone know where I can get the table he has in his kitchen (at 0:49)? I am looking for something exactly like that (or very similar) as a center island in my kitchen. Thought someone here may have an idea.

Oh, and cool video and all. LOL

Damn you. I didn't even notice it the first done until I read you comment and now I wasn't it too. Let me know if you find it :)

Skynet is officially here. Now let's see what excuse the EU will come up next with to stop it.

Terrible music!!!!!! And it seems to tie you into one and only one vendors services. Not interested!!!

I like the options, but Google being pretty much everywhere would be a bit much for me lol.

I actually thought they missed an opportunity in this commercial... or at least, I'm giving them a C+...

From what I've seen today (and already know), they could have shown off soooOooOOoo much more. Especially around the car features, and chromcasting features. I know they need to keep it short, but they missed out on some of the coolest things you can currently experience.

I couldnt sleep with that tablet on my wrist! Not sure if i'm ready to sell my electric soul to the collective just yet.

That's was the quickest jog I've ever seen. Does Google now jog for you?

I'm the kind of guy who stops a microwave at one second to feel like a bomb defuser.

You really go for the dramatics.

I really enjoyed the video. I'm excited about the technology these platforms are coming out with. A great time to be a consumer. My only critique and it's personal lol, the guy went running, took his dog to a dog show, and hung out watched a movie but there was no cut away for a shower lol.
