So, what exactly is Google TV and why is there so much hype surrounding it? Google TV is a television interaction platform accessed through Google Chrome, offering users access to online video content from various sources such as YouTube and Netflix. The browsing experience is now easier than ever, requiring only a remote, mouse, keyboard, or Android-powered device for simple navigation.

To help users fully grasp the potential of Google TV, TCL shares five incredible things you can do with this innovative platform:

  1. Find movies and series from all streaming apps in one place! Google TV gives you access to the Google Play Store, where you can find everything from games to apps. By linking your Google account, you can easily download content without the hassle of browsing through different apps like Netflix or YouTube. With the Google Home app and voice commands, you can effortlessly browse across all your streaming devices. Simply say, “Hey Google, find me some good comedies” or “Hey Google, what are the best dramas?” and explore the curated results across all your apps.
  2. Dive into a world of games. Google TV isn’t just about a superior viewing experience; it also offers an extensive collection of games through apps like Google Play Games. Transform your Google TV into a gaming console and experience immersive, cross-platform gameplay like never before. Whether you’re into action-packed adventures or mind-bending puzzles, Google Play Games allows you to play a wide variety of games on your Google TV, seamlessly picking up where you left off on any other device running the app. Capture and share your best gameplay moments, create unique profiles, and automatically save your progress. And the best part? Built-in Google games like Solitaire, Minesweeper, Snake, PAC-MAN, Cricket, and Whirlybird are available even when you’re offline.
  3. Say hello to your perfect personal assistants: OK Google & Alexa. With the built-in voice search feature “Ok Google,” TCL’s Google TV range, including the TCL P635, offers easy control with simple voice commands.
