Is 20 minutes of Netflix or Hulu scrolling part of your nightly routine? Either "Nothing looks good" or "I do not watch a three-hour movie at this time of night." Normally you just pick something random to watch and then play on the phone to stay busy. Google has developed a new mobile tool that can help you find a way to overcome this nighttime emergency. Now you can finally stop scrolling past the same movie for the hundredth time.
You can also tell Google if you've already watched a movie and what you thought about it by thumbing up or down. Your guide will help Google personalize movies and shows that Google shows you. And once you find out what you want to see, Google will let you know where you can see it.
