Google TV homescreen gets new content hubs, design tweaks

28 Feb 2023 | Rasmus Larsen |

Starting in the US, Google is rolling out four new content hubs on the Google TV homescreen to make it easier to find content. Globally, Google TV will get design tweaks.

Google is taking curation and "recommendations" – ads – from its partners one step further on Google TV which is slowly but steadily replacing Android TV.

- "So to improve your search journey and help narrow down your options, we’re launching four new content pages on Google TV in the U.S. These new pages, located right below the apps row on the For you tab, give you easy access to the best of Movies, Shows, Family and Spanish-language entertainment, without jumping app to app."

The new content hubs coming to Google TV

Google TV design tweaks

The Google TV profile switcher will be relocated from the top right corner to the top left corner. Search will move to the far right, along with the introduction of a new quick settings button. These design tweaks are rolling out globally now, as opposed to the refreshed homescreen which is available only in the US at launch. The new features and interface elements will be added server-side without requiring a software update on Chromecast with Google TV as well as other Google TV devices such as recent TV models from Hisense, Philips, Sony, and TCL.

New Google TV content hubs

Family: From classics to new releases, the Family page is the new destination for family-friendly entertainment. With content ratings of PG or lower, it's easy to find something the whole family can watch together. And not to worry: When your kids have their own TV time, they can still access their kids profile for all their favorites.

Español: The Español page is the new home for the best Spanish-language entertainment, including movies and shows, telenovelas, and live TV. You can also access popular Spanish-language apps like Pantaya and FlixLatino, plus a library of dubbed and subbed movies and shows. So whether you’re a native Spanish speaker, live in a bilingual household or are someone who enjoys spanish-language content, we’re making it even easier to watch the entertainment you love.

Movies: The Movies page lets you explore thousands of movies by title, genre or topic, all on one convenient page. You’ll also get personalized recommendations for movies you might like, along with new releases and top trending flicks. Shows: From “The White Lotus” to “Yellowstone,” binging your favorite show has never been easier. Visit the Shows page to get new releases from all your subscriptions in one place, see popular shows, and explore personalized topics. And when one show is over, you’ll get recommendations for other shows you might enjoy next.
