Sky has kept to its promised and updated Sky Go for the latest Android devices running Ice Cream Sandwich, or version 4.0 if you’re counting.
The new version of the app makes it compatible with three of Samsung’s finest 4.0 smartphones; the Galaxy Note, Galaxy Nexus, and the flagship Galaxy SIII. Version 2.0 launched last month, but now it’s been updated again for Android 4.0 gadgets, and is available as a free download from the Play Store.
We’ve given it a spin on our S3 and everything seems as you would expect, with plenty of speed and great quality. The S3 has a pretty big 4.7-inch display making it great for watching video, but we’re still going to be envious of Galaxy Note owners streaming Sky on that big 5.3-inch screen.
Owners of the HTC Sensation and Sensation XE who have updated to ICS will again be able to use the app, as the new update brings support for their new software.
Despite launching on Android in February of this year, the three new devices only take the total of supported products up to 11. Sky says it has to carefully test and select devices that will work with the app, and many cannot be supported due to digital rights restrictions – basically Sky doesn’t want you outputting its content from your device to a TV and then recording it.
