Google’s recent YouTube for Android app update allowed users to stream videos directly on Google TVs. But that obviously wasn’t enough, as Google is now announcing a slew of updates that should “make finding whatever you want on Google TV even faster and easier.” The slew of updates, which will begin rolling out this week to LG devices, includes Voice Search and PrimeTime. As the name of the feature suggests, Voice Search lets users control their Google TVs with their voice. Voice Search works with TV shows and movies, YouTube videos, applications, websites, and more importantly, Google Search.
“Say ‘CNN’ to go right to the channel, or say ‘Homeland’ to see all the live and streaming options to watch the show. You can even say ‘how to tie a bow tie’ to watch an instructional YouTube video. Try ‘search movies with Jeff Bridges’ and see results in our new, more visual search results page,” Google said. On the other hand, the PrimeTime feature is actually a new name for the TV & Movies app. But apart from being just a new name, Google says that finding content has never been easier. LG devices are the first in line to receive the updates. The rest will follow in the coming months.
