The Chromecast with Google TV interface has principally been lauded as an enchancment over Android TV, however there are nonetheless some issues lacking from it. Till now, for instance, it is not been potential to cover exhibits from the ‘Proceed watching’ part of the homescreen, however that appears set to vary. As Android TV continues to pick up Google TV features, a minimum of this one necessary factor goes the opposite means.
Lengthy-pressing a TV present or film residing on this part solely produced a redundant Open button beforehand, however a Redditor simply observed that they now have a Disguise button beneath it (by way of 9to5Google). That is precisely what you want if you happen to’re achieved watching one thing and would now not prefer it to clog up your feed.
I’ve not but received this functionality regardless of my Chromecast being on the newest firmware, so this can be a restricted check in the interim. It should not take too lengthy to roll out extra broadly, although.
That is nice information that can absolutely make tons of customers comfortable, however how about getting exhibits to persistently present up within the ‘Proceed watching’ part within the first place. From my expertise, solely two objects ever seem within the carousel and solely from Netflix despite the fact that we’re at the moment watching collection from a number of totally different companies. Type it out, Google — this might be one in all your greatest merchandise with just a bit additional care.
