Google releases four new features for Android TV
The other alternative would be to connect these TVs to the internet by using a mobile hotspot, and that's exactly what many owners are doing, even though watching HD TV on a mobile data connection will quickly drain their data plans.
Furthermore, Data Alerts helps users monitor their data usage while watching TV. With Hotspot Guide, users will be able to set up their TV with their mobile hotspot, while Cast in Files lets users view downloaded media from their phone on their TV without using data.
According to Google, all the improvements announced this week will be rolled out to Android TV devices in India over the coming weeks, starting with Xiaomi, TCL and MarQ by Flipkart, with a global rollout following after. Also, Cast in Google's Files app is already available for download via the Beta program and will roll out to all users in the coming weeks.
