Reports are surfacing that the search engine giant is hoping to develop an Android based games console and sophisticated watch.
The World Street Journal who first reported the story said that beating Apple to the release of such products was a clear motivating factor. Google believe that Apple may be launching a similar gaming device or watch in the near future.
They also said that Google planned to develop the devices themselves and hoped to release at least one before the end of the year.
Google wouldn't be the first company to develop an Android based games console. Gamestick and Ouya have recently released games consoles based on the operating system.
