In the near future, Google TV might automatically log in to your previously connected apps and services to make setting up a new smart TV or dongle easier.
Regarding APK Insight: We’ve decompiled the most recent version of an app that Google put on the Play Store in our APK Insight post. When we decompile these files—known as APKs for Android apps—we can find numerous lines of code that allude to potential future features. Remember that Google might or might not ever deploy these features, and our understanding of what they are might be limited. However, we’ll try to give those that are nearly finished a chance to demonstrate how they’ll seem if they do ship. Read on with that in mind.
You may connect in to your numerous streaming services and your chosen music app right now in the Google Assistant settings. This eliminates the need to sign in again and lets you play music and TV shows straight on gadgets like the Google Nest Hub or any other Cast-compatible gadget.
Both the phone app and the TV experience of Google TV leverage these connected services to suggest shows to watch based mostly on what you currently have access to. However, if you want to view a service’s whole library after configuring a new Google TV streamer, you’ll need to sign in to each app again.
Google TV will use your list of associated subscriptions to automatically download their corresponding apps and, where possible, sign in to your account, according to the most recent update to the Google TV Setup app, version 1.0.4508.
During setup, the following apps will be loaded on your TV: percent 1$s. Apps for your subscriptions will also be installed in addition.
Your Google Account-linked devices’ app information will be used to install and sign in to these apps on your TV.
According to the wording, Google TV will copy data from another device, either your phone, tablet, or another TV, to sign in rather than utilizing the credentials from Google Assistant.
In any case, it’s nice to see Google attempting to make it even simpler to get started with a new Google TV device, particularly in light of the company’s anticipated plans to release a new, more affordable Chromecast dongle this year.
