Google TV's TV & Movies app refreshed for info, suggestions

updated 04:20 pm EDT, Wed April 18, 2012

Google TV video app upgraded

Google has updated the TV & Movies app for Google TV owners (Google Play) to tackle some of the problems of discovery. A new layout puts more info underneath each episode to make it much easier to tell whether it's the most recent or otherwise fill in core details at a glance. Suggestions are more important as a whole: in addition to rating directly from the expanded info, viewers are now asked to rate a handful of shows on the new version's first launch to immediately start populating a suggestion list.

The Favorite Channels section in the update lets users add TV stations and show details of whatever's playing live. Individual shows can be tagged as favorites as well, although they're available for Internet streaming through services like HBO Go or Netflix.

The update is free and applies to all existing Google TV boxes and TV sets.
