Google Fiber’s deployment into new markets has been paused for now, but that hasn’t stopped Google from working on the service in areas it already exists. For example, today, Google Fiber TV gets a shiny new app!
Google says that the new Fiber TV app lets you both play and record favorite shows, sports, and movies with a single tap. It also shows you the next episodes of your favorite series, listings of sports as they are happening live with options to record them, more personalized recommendations, and will recommend recordings on your DVR.
Here is the full list of changes:
- Catch up on your favorite shows. You’ll now find the next episodes from your favorite shows waiting for you as soon as you open the Fiber TV app. With one tap you can begin watching.
- Don’t miss the game. See what sports are happening right now, or are scheduled for later, then record them to your DVR with one tap. And you can set up your recordings no matter where you are, even when you’re out with friends.
- Find recommendations for what to watch. View personalized recommendations for live TV. That means you’ll know to check out that Fresh Prince of Bel Air marathon or a new show you might enjoy, like Designated Survivor.
- Get to your recordings quickly. The app now recommends recordings on your DVR to watch next as soon as you open it, so you can save time getting to the entertainment you love.
The new app will begin rolling out to Fiber TV subscribers in the coming weeks.
