From Netflix to Disney + and Hulu – with multiple streaming platforms available, it can be difficult to keep track of what you are watching.
Now Google has made the task easier by adding a new built-in ‘Watchlist’ to Search that allows you to bookmark what you are currently viewing and want to see in the future.
Among images and trailers of films and shows is a new card with “Watched It?” and ‘Watchlist’, so that you can save the titles in your ‘Collections’ or you can view it by searching on ‘My Watchlist’.
The new feature is only available on the Google mobile site, the Google app for Android and iOS, as reported by 9to5Google.
