Google TV, which was launched with a newly redesigned Chromecast, should offer an enhanced Android TV experience even when it is based on Android TV below. That said, ironically it did not have several features that had long been owned by Android TV. Google finally discussed one of them when launching a child profile to put parents. However, still missing is support for some profiles of adults, something that will eventually be coming to Google TV, or at least hopefully soon.
Even though TV is often seen as a family or group device, not everyone has the same taste when it comes to entertainment. The emergence of smart TVs and their content sources make things a little more personal and bring out the need for different profiles for different users to keep their content with others.
With a platform like Android TV and Google TV, the need is even bigger because the recommendation system takes into account the user’s display and search history. When Google TV was launched, it has no profile support even when it allows multiple Google accounts to be signed to the same device. The end result is that only recommendations and the main account history are considered.
Google TV will eventually support many user profiles and 9to5Google checks from the latest APK instructions that you might come faster than later. Google TV application Google seems to have text pointing at preparation made to launch this feature. However, when it will happen, there are still allegations of anyone.
The latest version of this application also hides preparations made to increase existing child profile support. There will be onboarding tutorials for parents to guide them on how to create a profile like that and, more importantly, how to hide inappropriate content from the profile.
