Android TV is about to get recommendations and a watchlist, two of the best elements already found on Chromecast with Google TV…
Android TV is readying another big update. This time, it’s one that doesn’t have anything to really do with its form factor, but its function. And, Google is bringing the changes to the streaming platform starting next week. In fact, these are two of the most popular features found on Chromecast with Google TV: recommendations and watchlist. Better still, it’s on the way very soon.
Android TV Gaining Recommendations and Watchlist from Chromecast with Google TV
Introduced on Chromecast with Google TV, recommendations use Google’s algorithms to show viewers movies and television shows they might most want to watch based on previous ratings. It’s a great way to discover interesting titles people would otherwise miss or not to look for on their own. Plus, it helps keep uninteresting content from being foisted upon viewers.
The other, watchlist, which is self-explanatory. When someone comes across a movie or television show they’d like to watch in the future, the tool allows them to add it to a list. The watchlist will appear in a single row on the home page of Android TV, making it easy to find.
