Millions of Android owners warned to look out for urgent new Google alert


GOOGLE has refreshed its popular TV app with a new look similar to the firm’s other services.

Google TV has a slight lick of paint

It’s all part of Google’s so-called Material Design project, which is a similar look and feel across all its apps.

You’ll see that things appear a lot more rounded, like the pill-shaped buttons along the bottom.

But content wise, everything is pretty much the same as before.

There are no new features either.

Material Design has been implemented right across Google’s apps for the last few years.

It was first unveiled by the firm back in 2014.

So it was about time the Google TV app should receive the same treatment.

It comes after the tech giant recently revealed a new universal cast feature.

This will let you cast videos to a connected TV straight from the Google TV app.

A new look virtual remote was shown off, but neither have appeared in the new app design yet.

The Google TV app was launched in May 2011.

Though back then it was known as Google Play Movies & TV.
