Introducing Google TV Click: Real Interaction with Your TV

Think of all those times when you screamed at your favorite TV shows or movies urging the actors finally to have that long awaited kiss (“Go for it!”) or avoid a terrible life-changing decision (“Don’t go in there!”). Now Google TV is making this possible with Google TV Click, an innovative remote control app for your phone and tablet that lets you interact with shows and movies as they’re playing.  

Using the magic of our Common Gateway Interface technology and the patented Motion Beaming feature on your favorite celebrities, you can control the actors, settings, and overall flow of programs. Bored by a dreary atmosphere? Move the show to a tropical beach or an exotic jungle! Did Jar Jar Binks ruin the Star Wars prequels for you? Blast him off on a shuttle to a galaxy far, far away. With Google TV Click you are in control and can ensure that every TV viewing experience is to your satisfaction


We have extensively tested Google TV Click. The Matrix took a very different turn when we had Neo take the blue pill. In our version of Mad Men, Don and Betty are now happily back together.  Our second time through 300, we decided to give the Spartans helicopter support.  And we’re excited to see the drama continue now that we kept Shane from getting killed on The Walking Dead.

Give it a try, and take your TV watching to a new level. Our initial roll-out of Google Click will be available for download from the Google Play Store for one day only — April 31, 2012.  We hope you’re ready, because you haven’t seen anything like this before!
