Google TV’s individual profiles are arriving after being delayed for a few months

After months of delay, Google is finally rolling out its personalized profiles for Google TV “in the coming weeks.”

Announced in October, Google TV Profiles will make it easier for multi-viewer households to navigate content by giving people access to individualized recommendations, watchlists, and Google Assistant answers.

Google has expanded Google TV to make it less of a one-store experience for household members who prefer different content. Last year, Google TV launched Kids Profiles, where parents can choose which apps are available and set viewing time limits. Earlier this month, the team began rolling out an ambient mode screensaver with personalized maps showing things like the weather, sports scores and podcast links.

Installed apps are ready to stream through any profile — except for kids’ profiles, of course — and credentials are saved for households sharing accounts across streaming services.
