The Google TV app is now available on iOS, and it aggregates content recommendations from a variety of streaming sources and allows you to create a universal watch list of your favorites. If you already have the Google Play Movies & TV App installed, you should be able to update to the Google TV experience sometime today, according to Google.
The Programmer, which is already available on Android, also allows you to evaluate previous recommendations in order to improve future ones. More crucially, you can use the Google TV app as a remote for your Android TV or Chromecast with Google TV by tapping the remote icon.
Netflix is the only major streaming service that does not enable its content to be featured in Google TV’s rows of aggregated recordings.
Google TV connectivity was discontinued shortly after the release of the 2020 Chromecast, and the firm has been unable to entice Netflix back into the fold since then.
Apart from the entertainment carousels, the Google TV app also has your Google rental and purchase library. (If you already have Movies Anywhere set up, here’s another way to watch it.) All of this may be found under the “your things” tab.
“In the loop with a personalized daily feed of news, reviews, and more about the entertainment you enjoy,” according to Google’s “highlights” tab.
Google TV remains one of my favorite interfaces for reviewing what’s available across all of your subscription providers. Google recently added individual user profiles to the experience, allowing each member of your household to have their own personal preferences and home screen. The corporation has also hinted that fitness features for its TV platform are in the works.
