  1. Support more streaming apps (FX Now, ESPN Go, etc.)

    The one thing (only thing really) I truly miss about AT&T U-Verse was that it supported streaming apps like FX Now, Comedy Central, ESPN Go., etc. I liked being able to watch those programs on my tablet. But Google Fiber doesn't offer that, which is disappointing. If Google Fiber can't offer this, at least give us the ability to play DVR'd content via the Fiber app.

    • Emergency alerts need to be able to be stopped by viewer.

      The emergency alerts need to be able to be stopped by the viewer once they are popped up. The volume on them is so loud that we can't hear the news to get the details on whatever the alert is about. I understand that you need to pop them up, but the viewer needs to be able to control if they continue or not, especially if it's the second or third or more time for the same alert.

        • Google Fiber Roku, Chromecast, etc App for Live TV

          Have the ability to watch live Google fiber TV through an app on the Roku, Chromecast, etc while within the home network. This would reduce the number of set top boxes needed for tvs that are used casually.

            • Fiber phone display caller ID on Google Fiber TV

              If you have Google Fiber TV and Google Fiber Phone, it would be great to have an option for the caller ID to pop up on the TV when the phone rings. Had this functionality with TimeWarner and loved it, would be awesome to have that ability on my fiber service.
              Something that TWC didn't have was the ability to send a call to voicemail with your remote if you don't want to talk to someone. Call screening over your tv's audio would be nice to have as well.
              Another nice to have feature would be to be able to…

              • Start over

                Ability to restart a broadcast show from the start. When tuning into a broadcast late it would be great to have the option of restarting that particular show from the beginning.

                • PLEASE PUT THE MOVIE RELEASE YEAR IN THE INFORMATION OF THE MOVIE.

                  I hate reading the info, thinking it sounds good, and then finding out it is from 1932 in black and white. ugh. so frustrating.

                  • Fast forwarding thru commericials

                    Fast forward is fast enough that you cannot not time the proper end of Commercials and have to manually go back (Reverse) to not miss the show your watching. TIVO automatically backs up a few seconds anticipating the delay of hitting the play button. It's was a neat feature that Google Fiber needs to do. It takes a way the the frustration of passing by the show.

                    • Pandora App on Google Fiber

                      Pandora app is a great app that allows us to stream music through our Internet. We would like to add this app to our selection of Google Fiber apps available on our television.

                            Click on app - shows full screen mode of local weather radar. Sweeet!

                            The Intellicast app in the Google Android Play Store is a good radar app to copy from.

                            • Custom font sizes

                              Add the ability to change font size in the Guide. The only text size is too small to see from viewing distance. Chrome allows this, so should the guide.

                                • TV Everywhere should actually be TV EVERYWHERE

                                  The TV Everywhere app can only be used when you are connected to your home Wifi. That is not "TV Everywhere" but instead "TV at Home, where I can already watch TV". I would like to be able to watch live TV and DVRed content remotely. I'm disappointed that what is supposed to be a high tech sort of product doesn't have this basic seeming technology.

                                  • Prompt/check before software update

                                    Before updating the GF firmware, please display a prompt to the user on the TV allowing them to delay the update. This would prevent the TV service from suddenly cutting out for several minutes in the middle of watching TV. At least one user has reported an unwanted SW update in the middle of and interrupting prime time TV at 8PM.

                                    Perhaps a TV with the screensaver running could be considered idle and if all TVs were on the screensaver no prompt would be needed.

                                    I've experienced similar difficulties with a show that records at 02:00 (central) weekdays. Every few…

                                    • Make it simpler to delete programs.

                                      There are WAAAAAY too many steps to delete programs. At least make it an option to delete with 1 or 2 "clicks" (same button, preferably) If you delete something by accident, make it possible to recover it, like xfinity's interface. C'mon, you're Google! Don't let Comcast have even ONE good feature you don't.

                                        • Smart recording defaults to First Runs+Reruns

                                          Add ability to change smart recording defaults. I don't want to have to update every new smart recording to record just First Runs. I would like to change the default to First Runs instead of First Runs + Reruns.
