When we launched Logitech Revue with Google TV, we promised we’d take advantage of the open nature of the platform to enhance the experience on a regular basis. Today we released an update that certainly lives up to that promise.
You said you wanted to be able to update your Netflix queue and find movies and TV shows within the Netflix app. And we’re excited to say, as soon as you accept the update, you can.
You said that Dual View was a great feature, but you wanted it to do more. Now, Dual View allows you to move and resize it so whether you want live TV large or small, you’ve got it.
And we’ve added stuff you didn’t know you wanted! Now when you are searching for a movie, Google TV has a landing page that shows you all films associated with the title so you can quickly watch it wherever it’s available on your TV, the web or within an app — from sources like TV channels, Netflix, and Amazon Video on Demand. You can even click on the name of a cast member and we’ll take you to a new search landing page where you’ll see other movies that you can watch with that actor. It’s a cool way to discover movies.
Of course, as with every update, we took the opportunity to tweak features, address bugs and improve the overall experience in ways you may – or may not – notice. We’ve posted a more complete list of the updates on the support forums and we’re already planning for what’s in the next update.
