Google concedes its Google TV software is excessively sluggish
Google has been dealing with making its TV experience faster, more responsive, and to a lesser extent an issue for clients. As indicated by a post on its support forums on Monday, the organization has been working on improving boot time, general performance, and the number of options for managing storage on both third-party TVs as well as its Chromecast with Google TV streaming puck.
The organization says that it’s fixed things such that the Google TV homescreen loads faster, lessening how much time before you can select which content to watch. Google says it accomplished the performance enhancements “through CPU optimizations and improvements to cache management” and that they’ve begun to carry out on third-party gadgets and are “coming soon” for Chromecasts.
As per the post, clients ought to be seeing faster performance in a few regions — while loading the Live tab, looking at the homescreen, or utilizing a kid profile. Some of these upgrades, as indicated by the organization, are thanks to the way that Google TV itself uses less RAM, leaving something else for applications, particularly while you’re switching between various screens.
The organization’s additionally responding to complaints that have cropped up about how storage limitations can make it hard to install applications for Google TV, particularly on gadgets like the Chromecast, which just truly has 5GB of usable space, as per Android Police. Google says it’s additional a menu in Settings > System > Storage that will allow you to let you free up space by clearing the gadget’s cache and uninstalling apps, which has carried out to the Chromecast and will be coming soon to smart TVs. It likewise says there’s an “automated process that runs in the background” to free up space for apps.
With late reports about Google hoping to integrate wearables and free channels into Google TV, it seems like the organization could be preparing to push clients toward its big screen experience. Assuming that is the plan, it’s a good idea that enhancing the basics now is attempting. Notwithstanding, as individuals need increasingly more applications to stay aware of the developing number of streaming services, it could be the ideal opportunity for hardware manufacturers (including Google) to consider updating how much capacity that accompanies Google TV gadgets. While software stunts might assist with decreasing the quantity of low storage error messages, there’s actually not a viable replacement for simply having more space.
