Google TV is the biggest change to Android TV we've seen in years, and although it may well have its drawbacks, it sounds like it's pretty good at serving you the content you actually want. It also has an easily accessible watchlist that you can add movies and shows from various services. We now know that this list is also integrated with the watchlist feature in Google Search, as well as the wishlist in the Play Store.

Stadia on Android TV isn't officially coming until 2021, even though it works already

Google has been preparing Stadia support for Android TV for a while now, and it remains one of the only Google platforms where the game streaming service isn't officially available yet.

It's been a few years since Google released a new Chromecast and even longer since it gave us a new Android TV device. Today, we get both... sort of. After being rumored, leaked, and sold early at multiple national retailers (yikes), the new Chromecast with Google TV is official.

Google products undergoing multiple rounds of rebranding during their life cycle has become the norm — sparing not even the more popular ones.
