Not showing full watch history (Chromecast with Google TV) 0 Recommended Answers 27 Replies 63 Upvotes

Chromecast with Google TV has a "Continue Watching" section that shows recently played movies/shows, however it is only showing me recent history from the HBO Max app. Anything I start watching from any other app does not appear in this list so I have to manually browse to it anew each time.

How do I access ALL recent watch history or get other apps to feed into the "Continue Watching" section? I am not casting, only using native apps on the Chromecast.

This seems to be an error specifically on the Google TV with Chromecast, as this is working in the Android app (phone) spendidly, it would be nice if this worked properly on the Google TV as well, currently HBO Max seems to be the only contributor to mine, all other apps are ignored. Searching on reddit reveals the apps that are currently included/not included appears to be per device basis and random. Does this currently work for anyone?

If this helps I have the following apps installed and logged in, includes Status of showing up in the "Continue watching" section:

Amazon Prime Video (not showing)
Hulu (not showing)
Netflix (not showing)
HBO Max (*showing)
Peacock (not showing)
VRV (Not showing)
Philo (Not showing)

Does anyone know of this is a google issue or an app developer issue?

I'm not sure either of these articles address the issue to which I'm referring. The first is about App Only Mode (which is the opposite of what I want) and the second is about Watchlists mainly.

I'm asking about shows/movies you are in the middle of watching or bingeing as a series, called the "Continue Watching" section in Chromecast (same in Netflix and possibly others). I'd assume Chromecast could list shows from any app I'm currently watching but it is only listing ones from HBO Max for some reason.

I have the same issue but strangely for me Netflix is the only app that works. I use Prime and Plex otherwise and both don’t show in the continue watching.

Just tried this and nothing has changed, again this is working on the phone app, but not on google TV. Seems as if the Google TV app needs a Developer to investigate, I am happy to be contacted if this will help any progress!

I have the same problem. Only shows Disney Plus shows. 
Weird that such an obvious feature doesn't work and isn't being fixed...

Same here, only Disney+ while it ignores Netflix and Prime. Very frustrating as one of the main reasons I bought the chromecast with google tv!

So Disney (the only one showing up in "continue watching" section) is the only app using my Gmail. Netflix and prime are signed up using different email addresses... Maybe the reason?

I have raised the issue with google support who noticed this. Fingers crossed for a solution soon.

to vinny who posted before me i think thats part of it but i think the issue still lies beyond that as i have hulu with disney+ both on the same email and it still only shows disney+ even though i have used hulu to watch things like animaniacs and it doesnt show me things from youtube
