How recommendations work

Movie and TV show recommendations are based on what's popular or trending in Google products, what’s mentioned across the web, and what’s new to streaming services.

  • Past searches and browsing history.
  • TV shows or movies you’ve rated.
  • Trailers you’ve watched on YouTube.
  • TV shows or movies you've clicked to watch on Google TV.
