Google TV will bring the ability to hide movies, shows from ‘Continue watching’ row
Android TV is set to get considerably more features from Google TV soon, yet the opposite is currently likewise set to occur. The Google TV “Continue watching” carousel will before long let you “Hide” content.
“Continue watching” is an exceptionally advantageous approach to return to what you were formerly viewing. Films and TV shows across various applications are displayed here with a cover image and progress bar. At I/O, Google shared how more than 100 significant application partners support the WatchNext API and that it prompts an about 30% expansion in re-engagement.
On the new Chromecast and apparently upheld Sony TVs, Google TV is starting to carry out a new “Hide” action for the Continue watching line that is accessible by long-pressing on a card with the middle catch on your remote. This already just introduced “Open,” with this feature not yet broadly carried out. It’s not live on three gadgets they checked this evening.
