Today, Google released the first update to Google TV software. In addition to fixing some bugs, there are four significant improvements to the platform:
- Now using Netflix the app lets you search, browse and watch any movie or show from the Netflix streaming catalog. You can even add these titles to your DVD queue if you want them mailed to you. The Netflix app will also give you personalized recommendations based on what you’ve watched before.
- Dual View: Google TV brings the TV and web together in one seamless experience so you can easily watch your favorite TV show and browse your favorite website together at once. Also, it now allow you to re-size and move the window however you’d like.
- Remote Control App for Android Phones is now available in Android Market. Apart from standard TV remote options like changing channels or accessing your DVR, you can now interact with your TV in ways you never have before. You can try using integrated voice search by speaking into your phone. Or, go from small screen to big screen by sharing videos and websites directly from your phone to your TV.
- Movies: Google TV’s movie results page shows you all films associated with the title so you can quickly watch what you want, wherever it’s available — ranging from sources like live TV, Netflix, and Amazon Video on Demand.
