    New Update to GoogleTV adds Great New Features


    Google has just released their newest update to GoogleTV, and along with a few bug fixes, it comes with some amazing new features. Here are the new features directly quoted from GoogleTV's Blog:

    Netflix
    We’ve partnered up with our friends at Netflix to upgrade the app so that you can search, browse and watch any movie or show that is in the Netflix streaming catalog. You can even add these titles to your DVD queue if you want them mailed to you. Not sure what to
    watch? The new Netflix app will also give you personalized recommendations based on what you’ve watched before. Your TV is now an unlimited source of entertainment.

    Dual View
    GoogleTV brings the TV and web together in one seamless experience so you can easily watch your favorite TV show and browse your favorite website at the same time. With the feature, you can do things like watch Conan while tweeting about him on Twitter at the same time. Since launch, we’ve had users give us feedback that they want even more customization options for this feature, and so today we have enhanced it to allow you to re-size and move the window however you’d like.

    Remote control app for Android phones
    What if you could control your TV with the power of your voice? Starting today you can download the Google TV Remote app in Android Market. Apart from the standard TV remote options like changing channels or accessing your DVR, you can now interact with your TV in ways you never have before. For instance, try using the integrated voice search which allows you to find your favorite shows and movies just by speaking into your phone. Or, go from small screen to big screen by sharing videos and websites directly from your phone to your TV. We’ve included a short preview of these features below. Stay tuned for more information about the Google TV Remote for other platforms in the near future.



    Movies
    Say you’re searching for a movie like ‘Harry Potter’. Google TV now has a movie results page that shows you all films associated with the title so you can quickly watch what you want, wherever it’s available -- ranging from sources like live TV, Netflix, and Amazon Video on Demand. You can also read a quick summary, see photos, and find the cast list. Click on the name of a cast member and we’ll take you to a new search landing page where you can find other movies featuring that actor. Trust us, you’ll never leave the couch again.

    Between services like GoogleTV, Netflix, Hulu and others, the entire landscape and nature of the way we watch television is rapidly changing. This "Information Age" that we find ourselves in just moves too fast for the old-style television to keep up. It seems that Google has a great handle on the way things are evolving. Obviously, in many markets they seem to be "steering the ship" when it comes to innovation. From Android based smartphones... to television... to cloud-based computing, we seem to be in pretty good hands.

    Woot!

    I can't wait to get home tonight and try these out.

    (Wish someone would capitalize on the $1000.00 bounty and root the thing.)

    Did you guys notice that at the end of the video on the OP that Google has a contest to give away 100 of those 46" HDTV with GoogleTV?

    I wonder how many from this site will enter that...

    Could the update be only for the actual Google TV's, not the boxes?
