Google TV finally gains personalized profiles for more tailored content

Now it's easy to separate your content from the rest of the family.

What you need to know

  • Google TV is enhancing user profiles with personal content preferences and individualized recommendations.
  • Ambient mode will not show glanceable, actionable cards based on the current profile.
  • The Google TV remote will be available via the Google Home app.

Google TV is making it easier for families to separate their media content and preferences by bringing new personalized profiles.

Coming soon to users worldwide, Google TV will offer personalized recommendations for each profile based on individual interests and preferences. Users will have their profiles linked to their own Google Account, meaning they will have their watchlist and personalized responses from Google Assistant.

Google TV Personalized Profiles

It's already been possible to add a kids profile to your Google TV, but now everyone in the family will have their own space for content, something that's already been possible on some of the best Amazon Fire TV sticks. Apps and logins will work across profiles, making it easy to quickly manage content when setting up a new account, especially for apps that already support multiple profiles.

The new personalization will also extend to Google TV's ambient mode. In addition to images from Google Photos, users will now see glanceable cards based on their profiles, showing weather, news, content recommendations, and more. Users can also cycle through these cards to jump straight into the content.

Live TV subscribers may be happy to learn that Philo is now integrated into the For You and Live tabs, joining YouTube TV and Sling TV as built-in live streaming options with more teased for future updates.

Lastly, after bringing the Google TV remote to the Google TV app, it will soon come to the Google Home app as well for quick access on the best Android phones and on iPhones.

Personalized profiles will arrive globally on Chromecast with Google TV and Sony and TCL TV sets running Google TV. The new ambient mode cards will arrive first in the U.S., although no time frame was given for a wider release.

How to watch season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy online from anywhere

After last season was cut short, Grey's Anatomy is returning to ABC with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch the longest running medical drama yet on TV or online. Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department. Based on the trailer for the two show's latest crossover event, after a Station 19 fire truck is hijacked, a patient needs to be brought on foot to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for treatment. Last season of Grey's Anatomy saw Dr. Meredith Gray infected Covid-19 and while in a coma, many characters from past seasons of the show returned to visit her on a beach. Although Mere

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to
