One of the best things about Chromecast with Google TV is its personalized show and movie recommendations. But it may take Google TV a while to figure out your shtick, and even then, it’s not always accurate. That’s why the latest Google TV update lets you improve your recommendations by telling Google what you like and what you don’t like directly.

This week’s latest Google TV update includes a “Content Preferences” option in settings. After opening “Content Preferences”, Google will ask you to rate a series of shows and movies. Once that’s done, Google applies your new preferences to your Google Account, improving recommendations across all of the company’s departments.


Google is now rolling out the latest Chromecast update with Google TV, but it may take a few days to reach your device. If you don’t see the option to manually update your content preferences, try adding shows and movies that interest you to your watchlist, and be sure to mark any recommendable content you already have. seen as “watched”.
