The latest update for Android TV’s operating system now features cinematic teaser trailers that automatically play on the home screen while you’re browsing for shows. This new feature is designed to help users get a taste of the content available and be able to find something to watch more easily.
The trailers you see will be picked for you by “Google Play’s entertainment experts,” as well as sponsored media partners who pay to get their trailer on your screen. You’ll also be able to get more personalized trailers popping up by linking your Google account.
There’s also a new feature rolling out as a trial on a few apps on Google play, like the STARZ app that makes it easier for you to sign up for new service by auto-filling your information for you after a few initial clicks. That way you don’t have to bother with typing out all your information using a time-consuming remote control. Simply find your app and click on “Subscribe and install,” and watch Google do the rest
These updates have started popping up on Android devices, so keep an eye out for the new features.
