Google TV is rolling out a redesign that adds a new “Highlights” tab and reorganizes other parts of the Android app. The new Highlights tab showcases YouTube videos, news, reviews, and other articles related to the movies and TV shows you’re interested in. The new version v4.32.50 of the Google TV app with the new redesign is now being released via the Play Store. However, the update does not bring all the Material You design changes that Google showed off in March.
Revamped Google TV App With Highlights Feed Is Now Rolling Out
With the redesigned app, you get a variety of new tabs at the bottom to easily find what you are looking for. As mentioned earlier, the Highlights tab helps you find additional content related to the movies and TV shows that you’re interested in.
Additionally, you get a “Share” button to send the content you like across different platforms. A “Stacked Card” button further assists you to load “Related highlights”. Plus, the revamped Google TV allows you to like or dislike the content you see, so that the feed is tuned to showcase more relevant content.

Furthermore, “For You” is now the new Home tab, and it occupies the second position in the bottom bar. Google has removed the top tabs for Movies and Shows from the main page of the older version of the app. With the latest update, they are now part of the “For You” tab, and you’ll find them as you scroll down.
Next up, there is a “Shop” section, which will become more relevant once the Play Store gets rid of the Play Movies & TV tab. Meanwhile, Library and Watchlist have been consolidated into the Your Stuff tab.
