Google has added a new feature on Google Search called ‘Watchlist.' Watchlist enables users to bookmark television shows and movies that they want to watch in the future. The new watchlist feature is currently only available on mobile.
Building on the existing Collections feature, Google has added a new feature on Google Search called ‘Watchlist.’ It enables users to bookmark television shows and movies that they want to watch in the future. It can be found within a card on Google Search, joining a different tool that allows users to mark a show or movie as already watched.
Users can find the Watchlist feature below the description card for a TV show or a movie searched by the user. The new feature enables users to generate a Watchlist, which in turn makes it easier to browse content they are looking to watch the next time they’re in need of something to stream for movie night.
There is a ‘Watched it?’ bubble next to the ‘Watchlist’ whose function is precisely what it sounds like - it lets users mark a movie or TV show they’ve already watched. Once bookmarked, the movies and TV shows are saved to the particular Google Account used to perform the action. When a user clicks on the Watchlist, it shows the content with its posters or other related materials.
Google also provides users with the option of sharing the Watchlist with other people. It could allow a user to coordinate with someone else on what to watch next. Also, to find the Watchlist, a user needs to go to ‘Collections.’ A Watchlist can also be found by searching for ‘My Watchlist’ within Google Search. Apart from the bookmark feature, Wishlist includes the available streaming and digital rental/purchase options.
The new watchlist feature is currently only available on mobile through the web or Google app for Android and iOS.
