Sky has today announced a new update has rolled out for their Sky+ for Android application which brings with it a number of new features and tweaks including listings for on-demand content, and now shows listings for Catch Up, TV Box Sets, Sky Movies and Sky Store.
The new Sky+ for Android app is now also equipped with an enhanced search capability, which has been designed to enable Sky customers to find their favourite shows even easier than before.
Enabling Sky+ users to find TV shows by cast names, actors and keywords adding to the already programme title search facility. The new Sky+ for Android will now also automatically generate suggestions based on letters being typed and the current popular TV search terms. Sky explains in a little more detail:
“For example, if a customer types the letter “L” the top result will be the current British and Irish Lions Tour, then other results such as Life of Pi, Lincoln and The Lion King will start to appear in order of current popularity as additional letters are typed. When Lions Tour is selected, all the next matches will be shown. Or if customers search for an actor, such as Adam Sandler, the search results will show all the movies he’s in currently showing on Sky, whether it’s in the TV Guide, available On Demand or in Sky Store.”
The newly updated Sky+ for Android application is now available to download from the Google Play Store for free.
