Google TV has just got a new update that makes hunting content on your smart telly faster and easier, by the simple method of talking to it.
It's 'Voice Search' where you can basically say anything you want to the TV and see what results come up. You won't know how good the gizmo's hearing is until you've tried it. Say "HBO" and you might go right to a shopping channel selling deodorant, or say "Homeland" to see all the live and streaming options to watch the show. You can even say "how to tie a bow tie" and watch a YouTube video showing you how to do it. Which nicely segues into Google TV's updated YouTube app.
With it, devices automatically pair up, so you can play any YouTube video from your Android phone or tablet on your TV with just one button.
The update comes with a re-branded and improved TV & Movies app, now called PrimeTime. Where you can browse 100,000+ movies and TV episodes that are available to watch.
The update starts to roll out this week to LG devices and to other devices thereafter.  For more information, check out the updated Google TV overview.
