Update to Google TV brings voice search, PrimeTime

Capture

In Google’s latest slew of updates, Google TVs made by LG (followed by others) have gotten some new features. Google TV users will now enjoy voice search, which speaks for itself, and PrimeTime, the update to the TV and Movies app. According to Google:

Now called PrimeTime, the app makes it even easier to find your favorite content. Easily access PrimeTime anywhere in Google TV and browse for something new while you watch. You can quickly flip through the best stuff on live TV, access your favorite channels, see TV shows you recently watched, and find other suggestions based on what you enjoy watching.

As far as voice search is concerned, you can say commands like “CNN” to go straight to that channel, “Homeland” to see all live and streaming options for that show, or even search for phrases for Google search results. Check out the video below for full examples.
