Zynga Poker Debuts On Google TV

Major social game company Zynga has decided to bring its popular Zynga Poker into the living room via a new native app for Google TV. This new version of the game will run on any television using the Google TV platform, and has been specifically optimized to allow control via the Google TV remote. On Facebook, Zynga's poker title is currently the fifth most popular app, and pulls in more than 29 million monthly active users, according to AppData. The title's new Google TV version is Zynga's first direct foray into the smart TV market, a space that has offered increasing support for games over the last several months. For instance, set-top box company Roku recently added a motion-sensing game remote to its line of products, and AMD and Happy Cloud have partnered to stream Windows games to internet-enabled televisions. Last week, Zynga revealed that it will make its long-anticipated IPO later this month, with public trading set to begin December 16.
