It was back in the spring of 2021 when we told you how the redesign of TVs with Android TV. In that case I noticed how my Sony TV had changed its design and Android TV looked more like Google TV than ever.
It was something that Google had reported that it would do from 2021 and now, touching the fingers the last quarter of 2023, the update with the redesign has ended for distributed among users in more countries.
Android TV doped for more users
It took a while, but more than two years later he has fulfilled what he promised and has freed up more markets the update that turns TVs with Android TV into something much more similar to a device with Google TV. It is something that Reddit users have echoed with an update that, for example, reaches Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates, South Africa, Bulgaria and Turkey.
A new design that improves the start menu giving it a more dynamic appearance. Google TV offers a more attractive design than Android TV, although it also has its drawbacks (oh Google Play Store is so hidden…).
The truth is that with the update that is now beginning in more countries, the aesthetic differences between both devices are minor. For example, it comes the “Discover” tab (“Discover” in some countries), with recommendations based on the user’s previous activity as well as interests found in the Google account. The new screen is organized by topics and genres to make it easier to find content.
Upper lashes arrive on the new home page or user profiles, for Android TV (if you are one of the lucky ones)… and even a banner with featured content on the home page.
The truth is It is now when this update is reaching all users, who will receive a notice when they turn on the TV informing them of the availability of said update. The profiles are missing, which have not reached everyone, but it is hoped that Google will not take too long to launch them.
