Android TV is gearing for another big update that Google has announced today. Recommendations and the watchlist are two of Google TV’s best features on the docket this week. Recommendations available first on the Chromecast with Google TV use Google’s algorithm to show users TV shows and movies they might want to see based on previous ratings. However, you can change the algorithm by rating more films.

The second new feature is the watchlist, allowing users to add films and shows they like while looking at the interface to a single row of the home page. This will help the users to keep track of the content they’ve meant to watch but, for some reason, haven’t found the time yet, and adding a show or movie to the list is as convenient as clicking on the card and clicking “add to watchlist.”

Now, the question is, how soon will users see these features? Well, according to a Google report, from the beginning of this week, they’ll start to see these new features on their Android TV.
