3. Lean Back And Let YouTube Work For You
What’s great about Google TV is you have multiple options when it comes to listening to music. Take the YouTube for Google TV app. YouTube has just about everything and then some when it comes to music and entertainment.
Within the YouTube app, you can find all kinds of entertaining videos from creative minds like you. Take for instance, a music parody from Weird Al. Type in ‘Weird Al Yankovic Star Wars’ and you’ll find several videos to stimulate your funny bone.
What’s also great about YouTube on Google TV is that when one video ends, another automatically begins. Constant playback is great for when you have guests over and you want to turn your TV into a conversation starter.
So instead of waiting for your protocol droid to pick a song for you in Geonosian, sit back, relax, and let the melodies of Google TV move the Force in you.
