Its new content discovery-oriented design comes to more Android TV models as well.

What you need to know

  • Android TV's new Discover interface makes its way to additional TV models.
  • The new experience, which focuses on easy content discovery, is also available in more countries.
  • It introduces a minor change to the home screen interface to help you easily find your streaming apps.

Google appears to be expanding the new Android TV interface to more TV models and regions. The new design, inspired by Google TV, includes the Discover tab, which was introduced earlier this year, as well as a minor change to the home screen interface.

The new UI for Android TV focuses on making it easier for users to find content that may be of interest to them. It was released in the United States in February, and Google updated the system in July to include new features such as a watchlist in the Discover tab.

The new Discover experience is now available on additional TV models, including the Xiaomi Mi Box, OnePlus TV, and some TCL models. Some users in India, Brazil, and Europe have received the UI update (via XDA Developers).

In addition to the previous changes Google made to Android TV, the latest update adds a "Favorite apps" carousel. This feature, as the name implies, displays multiple streaming apps in a single row for easy access.

These changes appear to be available with the most recent version of the Android TV Home app as well. Owners of the best Android TVs will also notice that all of the system's new features are prominently displayed on the home screen.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy

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. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really 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 here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive
