Google TV is finally gaining one of its most desired features- multi-user profile support, after launching in October of last year.
Google TV is a rebranding of Google’s Android TV OS—Android, but with a big-screen UI tailored for televisions. While some Android TV boxes are still available, Google is apparently planning to take out the “Android TV” brand by 2022 in favor of utilizing the Google TV branding everywhere. The next version of Android TV would be Google TV.
What Are The Benefits Of This Feature?
One of the most notable aspects of the Chromecast with Google TV, which was released in late 2020, was the Google TV software and dashboard. Google’s most recent attempt to get its services in front of your eyes while you’re watching TV was a launcher. It prioritizes personalization and smart recommendations, as long as you’re a one-person household.
Google TV only supported one user profile at first, but after introducing kid profiles, you don’t have to watch endless Baby Shark-related recommendations, Google pledges to offer more. That functionality has finally arrived after a long wait and a gradual deployment.
How Many Users Are Allowed To Use?
The new update by Google allows up to 12 profiles on a single connected TV device. It also makes the app downloads and login details visible excluding the kid’s profile.
How To Add Profile On Google TV?
On your Google TV, you may create several user-profiles and check in to Google services using multiple accounts. Your media and activity are synced across all of your signed-in devices. Profiles may not be available on all televisions at this time.
