One of the features Google TV is supposed to offer is personalized recommendations. However, as only one profile was available earlier, it became difficult to recommend content that everyone who used the same TV would like. A few months ago, Google tried to resolve this by adding Kids profile. That remotely didn’t come close to solving the issue, and so finally, we got Multiple Google account on Google TV for better-tailored recommendations.
So, what’s new in Google TV now?
For starters, as mentioned earlier, Personalized Recommendations, Creating your Watchlist, and finally Recommendations from Google Assitant.
Since you will add multiple profiles for multiple people, every recommendation will be based on the account activity. Someone recommends you a movie/series to watch, and you can create your watchlist and save it to watch later. And since it is your account, all the recommendations from Google Assitant will be based on your activity. Since it is your account, you can also get answers to other questions about your daily activities.
Setting up profiles is not going to be a hassle, in Google’s words,
“And setting up a new profile is easy. Your downloaded apps and app login details will be used across profiles, so you won’t have to start from scratch each time you set up a new profile.”
We think this was a much-needed addition to Google TV, and it’s finally here.
