Google upgrades TV offering

Google is launching a new upgrade of its Google TV offering, beginning with LG devices this week.

The new update adds voice search to the service. Google has also renamed its TV & Movies app as PrimeTime and upgraded it, allowing users to browse for one show while watching another, see TV shows you recently watched, and find other suggestions based on what they enjoy watching.

Google has also updated the YouTube app for Android and Google TV, enabling users to play any YouTube video from an Android device or TV with just one button.

The updates will roll out on LG devices initially. First-generation Google TV devices will receive the PrimeTime and YouTube updates.
