Google TV is bringing three new features to Android TV, all of which are aimed at making it easier for users to find content.

The first of the three features is a Watchlist, which we've seen on other Google platforms such as Google Search and the Google TV app, and is now available for Android TV users. Users can use this function to keep track of TV series and movies that they want to view later. To add series, movies, and other items to the list, long-press them in the Discover tab and select "Add to Watchlist."

Google has also added a row to the Discover tab that allows users to quickly access current content. Users will also be able to access the new feature through a new card in the Discover menu. After tapping the card, you'll be able to dislike or like the content that has been provided to them by clicking left or right.

When you're done, your Discover tab will update with fine-tuned recommendations, according to Google. The feature can be found in Settings > Device > Preferences > Home Screen > Content Preferences.

Last but not least, Android TV users will have access to auto-playing trailers on the details page of a movie or show. Of course, you may disable video previews by going to Settings > Device Preferences > Home Screen > deactivate Enable video previews. For those who wish to keep the feature turned on, Google believes it will provide a more cinematic experience.

For those wondering about when these features will be available on Android TV, Google has stated that the new Watchlist recommendation tweaking tool and redesigned details page will be available starting this week.

Like many other firms, the South Korean digital company has officially launched a 2D virtual assistant. The company, however, has opted to produce a three-dimensional variant to take the trend to the next level. The answer is simple: 3D characters are more appealing to the eye. As a result, once Sam arrives, people are likely to forget about Bixby. Although the character is currently two-dimensional, it has experienced a significant transformation since returning to social media. Samsung's new virtual assistant, on the other hand, will feature additional textures, positions, and expressions. The company's goal is to make its virtual assis
