Google has just announced a good set of upcoming changes to the Google TV app for Android, not to be confused with the Google TV available on TVs and devices like the Chromecast with Google TV.

On Android, the Google TV app replaces the old Google Play Movies, although only in regions where it is operational. The update adds support for more streaming services, a slight interface change, and more recommendations on what to watch.

More streaming services

Google TV recommends movies and series that interest you from all the streaming services you’ve set up in the app. With this update, Google TV is adding eight more streaming services, including its own, YouTube TV. Here are the new additions:

Discovery +


Cartoon Network

PBS children




YouTube TV

Redesign and more recommendations

In the design section, there is a curious change and that is that the posters of each film are presented in panoramic format, whereas previously they had a square design. Additionally, the Rotten Tomatoes score is included under each cover. On the other hand, if you find something in the recommendations that you have already seen, you can mark it as seen from its information page.

The latest change is also related to recommendations: this update will show more rows with personalized recommendations, after Google claims to have improved its recommendation system to include more specific categories. These changes will begin rolling out this week, first in the United States.
