Google house: About a month ago, Google released the new “Android TV Remote” functionality for the Google TV app. Soon, the feature will also be available on hundreds of smartphones with Android and iOS systems via Google house, which allows TVs to be controlled via the mobile device.
According to information released to the Engadget portal, users of Google TV and televisions with the Android TV system will be able to use almost any mobile phone as a remote control via the Google house application.
“As of today, you can find something great to watch on Google TV, even if the couch eats your remote. We’ve built remote control features on your Android smartphone so you can turn on your TV, scroll through your recommendations, or even start your favorite show right from your phone,” was published in the Google TV community.
Through Google house, the user can turn on the TV, set the schedule and even type a search query directly from the mobile phone. While some Android users are already using the feature, the company has not yet announced a general release date for Android and iOS.
