Just what does this app do?
Well, besides doubling as a TV remote control, it also lets users search for programming, browse listings, access on-demand content, and pick shows or recordings to watch. The app also lets users watch any of these shows or movies directly on their iPad.
Google inaugurated its high-speed Internet and TV service in Kansas City in November. The first Net-access system of its kind, Google Fiber has the Internet speed capacity of 1-gigabit-per-second, which the company says can be up to 100 times faster than what most Americans have today with broadband.
Now that Kansas City residents have had a chance to test the service out, Google Fiber will also be launching in Provo, Utah, sometime this year and in Austin, Texas, in 2014. The Google representative told CNET that the Google Fiber TV apps will also be available to customers in these cities once their Internet service is installed.
