The overview covers video, game and book apps under the names Watch, Games and Read. The Watch screen shows you content from all of your video applications, including YouTube. Only Netflix does not seem to participate.
This screen also shows the series and movies you were watching recently. Finally, you will see all the content recommended to you in this place. The design of this screen is very similar to Google TV, the tech giant’s smart TV operating system.
All your games and all your books
Games brings together different games on one screen, such as the games you last worked on and Google’s algorithm recommendations. You can also play some games here on a trial basis, without downloading them completely.
The Read screen displays the books in your Google Play Books collection. You will also find sample chapters from new books and audiobooks.
Later this year
The entertainment space will be rolled out “later this year” around the world on various tablets, including those from Lenovo and Sharp. In the United States, it will soon be available on Walmart shelves.
According to Google, the number of Android tablet users increased by thirty percent last year. With the new feature, the company wants to make it easier to view all of your content, without having to open different apps.
