Google search gets personalized TV, movie recommendations
Google has announced a new feature which would make personalized recommendations of what to watch, including both TV shows and movies, to make its search tool more user-friendly.
The new tool appears only when users search for things such as “what to watch” or “good shows to watch” from their smartphones. Google is making it easier to help users to watch by swiping left to dislike or right to like a particular show or movie.
“When you are settling in for a movie night or figuring out which shows you might want to binge before they return this fall, it’s not always easy to choose from all the options out there. If you’re like me, you have a few different streaming subscriptions, and you might find yourself spending more time browsing across multiple apps than actually watching a movie or TV show,” Matt Sheets, a product manager at Google Search, wrote in a blog post introducing the new tool.
