What to Watch - A New Google Search Experience

What to Watch: In a bid to help the user find new movies and TV Shows from different OTT apps, Google search has rolled out a new experience. Now, the user can ask Google search What to Watch, and the search engine recommends a list of latest movies and TV shows from different OTT applications available in India.

Google search has rolled out a new snippet that lists all the movies and TV shows from select OTT Providers. A user can execute this Snippet to appear on Google search by feeding specific pre-defined queries in the Google search. Below are some list of queries users can feed in the google search to execute this Snippet.

List of Queries to ask Google about the latest Movies and TV Shows.

  1. What to Watch
  2. Good Shows to Watch
  3. The Latest Shows to Watch on Netflix
  4. The Latest Movies to Watch on Netflix
  5. Crime Series to Watch and many more.

Users can either use a combination of the queries mentioned above or can use the options present in the Snippet to narrow down their search.

For example, say I want to watch the latest sci-fi shows available on Netflix. In that case, I can either type Latest Sci-Fi Shows to Watch on Netflix or can select and save Netflix as the service provider and then select shows and sci-fi from the Snippet’s navigation bar.

Although the user can use this Snippet to know which movies and TV Shows to watch from different OTT apps, there are still some OTT apps not enrolled in this Experience. Some popular ones are Amazon Prime Video, Zee5, and AltBalaji.
