Google Fiber App for Android Updated, Brings DVR Management Features


For the few of you who are lucky enough to have Google Fiber connected to your house, you can go grab the updated Fiber app that just hit Google Play. Google introduced a few DVR management features, which should help you control the media stored on your storage box a lot better. If you own an iPhone or iPad as well, you will be happy to know that Google also released the Google Fiber app for iPhones earlier today. 

Here is a look at the full changelog for the Fiber app.

What’s New:

  • Easier-to-use DVR
  • New remote control behavior and Now Playing screen
  • Improved user interface for smaller screen sizes
  • Performance improvements
  • Bug fixes

Anyone here actually rocking Fiber? If you are, I am so jelly of you.

    Fiber…Google’s ultimate staged rollout

  • Well, not only Fiber is updated…
    Blogger, Calendar, Chrome, Drive, Earth, Gmail, Goggles, Google+(ye it was yesterday, but still rolling out to users), Hangouts, Keep, Play Magazines, Play Music, Translate, Wallet and Analytics are all updated today. Did I miss anything? 🙂

  • andrew borrelli

    I live in San Diego… and while it’s not google fiber… my connection is DAYAM fast and only 50 a month…

    • Wyatt Neal

      Don’t take this personally … but I hate you.

    • DodgingDonkey

      I am envious of you.

    • chaoslimits

      Can you adopt me?

    • andrew borrelli

      It’s ridiculous how instantaneous youtube videos are… I can click anywhere and there’s no delay.

    • Derin Richardson

      You know it’s ludicrous speed when your upload rate is higher than your download rate.

      And considerably so.

      • andrew borrelli

        What’s ludicrous is that I had to buy a new WIFI router because my 802.11n router was bottle necking my internet connection 🙂

        • Derin Richardson

          Holy shite! That’s insane! Had to get an ac router then?

          • andrew borrelli

            Yeap.. looks like my only device that will support it will be the N5 if it ever fricken comes out.

        Nice download…. but I beat you on the upload 🙂

        • T4rd

          Meh, ping and download > upload. 😉

          • andrew borrelli

            I agree… what type of connection is that? My ping went in half going from cox cable to webpass service.

          • T4rd

            I dunno, I pulled it off of Google images just to mess with you, lol. XD.

          • Derin Richardson

            dat ping….

    • Lawrence_Hart

      What service do you have?

      • andrew borrelli

        webpass.net I’m gauranteed 200/200… but as you can see I’m getting quite a bit higher 🙂

    • rthvk

      I’m in San Diego too… Who the he** is your ISP? 😀

      • andrew borrelli

        webpass.net They really only service multi-dwelling units (high rises)

        • rthvk

          I’m looking into the “bring to your building” service. Hopefully I can get the service! I pay way more for 18 Mbps on U-verse, so changing would be pretty refreshing

          • michael arazan

            I get 18 on u-verse as well regularly, but you have to remeber that the dvr boxes take away from your net speeds, especially watching in hd and recording. Would probably get twice as much if the boxes were unplugged.

  • enigmaco

  • TeeJay1100

    • Wyatt Neal

  • T4rd

    *starts looking for jobs in Salt Lake City*

    • Marcellus111

      Look for a job in Provo Utah instead of SLC–that’s where Fiber is

      • T4rd

        D’oh, meant to say Kansas City. Ninja edited now ;-).

  • Great, now come to San Diego…
