Android TV erases some of the best content search tools from the Google TV platform, including Watchlist and more tuned recommendations.
Starting this week, Android TV users will be able to add titles to their watch list, which will be populated in a row on the Discover tab. To add movies and series to this section, users can either select the “Watchlist” title from the info page, or long press on the title on the Find tab and select “Add to Watchlist.” Additionally, users can add apps to this section from their other devices using Google Search or the Google TV mobile app.
Google TV also has the ability to refine user-recommended titles with the card swipe tool. This feature is now on its way to Android TV, allowing users to decide if they want to see more or less recommended titles. You can also find this tool on the Find tab or in Settings by selecting Device Settings, Home Screen, and then Content Settings.
Finally, trailers are automatically played on the data pages, if available. If that’s not your thing, you can turn off the feature in Settings by going to Device Settings and then on the Home screen, under Enable Video Previews. The changes are as follows a previous update earlier this year on the Android TV interface. Like these latest features, this one made the Android TV experience feel more like the Google TV experience.
According to the spokesperson, users will start seeing these features appear on their Android TV interfaces this week.
