Google TV also has the ability to customize recommendations using cards. This feature is now rolling out to Android TV, allowing users to decide if they want to see movies that are similar to the recommended ones. This tool can be found in the Discover tab or in the settings.

Another innovation is that trailers will automatically play on the description pages. If desired, this function can be disabled in the settings.

A Google spokesman confirmed that users will begin receiving these features on the Android TV interface starting this week.

Recall that Google TV is not a standalone OS and not a renamed Android TV, but an additional shell for Android TV. It is used in the new Chromecast media player, which debuted in October 2020.
