According to foreign media reports, Google has injected new movie slides into the top line of Android TV interface, which can help users more easily find what they may like. It will include Google’s TV shows, movies, APP recommendations and sponsorship content. Google said that “each source will be clearly marked on the content, so as to give users transparency”, so that users can distinguish between well planned recommendation and paid advertising.
It’s like net
Like flix’s TV app, if a user pauses one of the programs, it starts to play a preview.
Recommending popular, relevant content and apps may be useful to most people, but some people may not be too excited to see the huge ad at the top of the home screen.
Another update to Android TV is to adjust the subscription process to make it easier to subscribe to paid subscriptions. Usually, users need to pick up the mobile phone to complete the payment, or use the TV remote control to fill in their ID. the newly added function allows users to authorize payment, and automatically set up the subscription by clicking the Google account on Android TV.
Usually, Android TV doesn’t have many updates. Why not this time? According to rumors, Google may be preparing for its next streaming device. Previously, the media has exposed the news of a device code named “Sabrina”, which is said to be running Android TV and also includes a remote control with Google assistant function. Of course, only time will tell us exactly.
