Google working on home entertainment device

The company behind the Web’s most popular search engine is working on a home entertainment device, according to a filing with the Federal Communications Commission. And reports say that device will stream music wirelessly in people's homes.

Google plans to test 252 of the devices in its employees’ homes in Mountain View, Calif., where it has its headquarters; in Los Angeles; in New York; and in Cambridge, Mass. The device uses wireless home networks and “requires testing outside the laboratory environment,” the filing said.

The device isn’t ready to ship yet. The company says it’s still in the “prototyping phase.”

Google is looking for promising gushers other than its gangbusters search advertising business, which accounts for nearly all its revenue.
