Are you tired of always having to connect to your favorite streaming services as soon as you buy a new TV? Google may soon fix this problem. Indeed, a line of code in the latest OS APK seems to indicate that the latter could soon use Google account information to automatically log in to all platforms.
In recent years, Google has put a lot of effort into improving its TV operating system.

It should be noted, however, that these lines of code are subject to interpretation and that, whatever the case, it could be that Google decides not to ultimately succeed with the general public.
