The Google TV app provides various features for your home entertainment needs. From access to streaming services to your library of movies and television shows, this app allows you to find what you want when you want it. Thanks to the Google Family Link, you can control your library from your phone.
Casting content from multiple streaming services directly within the Google TV app
If you’ve ever lost your TV remote or wished you could stream content from several streaming services on your TV, Google has plans to make it easier. The new casting functionality will launch in the Google TV app early next week.
Before you can start casting, you’ll need to link your account to the service. Then, you’ll be able to cast from your Android device to your TV. You’ll also be able to use the device’s remote to control casting.
Once you’ve linked your accounts, you’ll be able to select multiple subscriptions and improve recommendations. In addition, you’ll be able to enable voice casting through Google Assistant.
This will allow you to use voice commands to start media playback through Google Assistant. You can also enable audio descriptions for the entire app.
Finding where your favorite movies and television shows are streaming
If you’re looking for a new way to watch your favorite TV shows and movies, you might want to consider streaming your content using a device like Google TV. It’s easy to find what you’re looking for without all the hassle of downloading apps on your phone or laptop.
One of the first steps in using a streaming service is signing up for a subscription. These services will allow you to watch movies and TV shows for a monthly fee. Of course, you’ll need to set up a data plan through your cell company to make the most of these services. But don’t worry, you won’t get stuck with an enormous bill!
Several apps out there will help you find what you’re looking for. Some will help you figure out where to stream, while others will show you what you’ve already been watching.
Taking your library on the go
If you’re looking for a way to take your library on the go, the Google TV app is a great option. Not only does it offer a variety of content, but it also helps you to browse and manage your watchlist. This includes recommending titles that you may not have seen.
The Google TV app is available on both Android and iOS devices. It’s based on machine learning to help users organize information. A top carousel contains themed content, ads, and top releases.
You’ll also find a “For you” tab with content from various apps. For instance, the Seattle Public Library has a list of reading lists for local plays.
While the Google TV app hasn’t been out for long, it’s certainly an improvement over its predecessor, the Android TV. It’s likely to be the interface of choice shortly.
Managing your library via Google Family Link
If you are concerned about your child’s Internet use, Google has a free Family Link app. It allows you to manage the apps, websites, and content that your child uses. You can also set screen time limits and restrict their use of games and YouTube videos.
The app works on Android devices and iPhones. You’ll need a Google account and a connected device to install it. During setup, you’ll be asked to enter your credit card information. Select “Accept” to continue.
After signing up, you’ll be prompted to choose a family payment method. Once you select the one you prefer, you’ll be redirected to the Google Play Store.
You’ll then see an invitation to join the Google Play Family Library. First, you’ll need to create a group of at least five people. This group can be anyone you want, including your kids and friends.
Personalized entertainment for everyone in your home
Google TV has a new feature that will change how you watch movies and television shows. It lets users create personalized profiles to get customized recommendations. They’ll also be able to access personalized responses from Google Assistant. This makes it easier to navigate and control your TV using voice commands.
The profile feature hasn’t been available for all Google TV-enabled devices, but it is expected to be coming soon. Personalized profiles will give each household member recommendations for shows, movies, and other content.
Currently, you can add up to 12 profiles on a single connected device. In addition, each family member can have an account, which can help parents control the amount of time their kids spend on their screens. There are even parental controls so that children can’t watch R-rated films.
