Google TV has officially launched an in-app remote for Android, allowing users to control Chromecast with Google TV right from their phone without having to bother with a physical remote. The app feature is now live

“Starting today, you can find something great to watch on your Google TV even when the couch has eaten your remote. We’ve built remote-control features directly into your Android phone so you can power on your TV, navigate through your recommendations or even start up your favorite show right from your phone. And you can use your phone’s keyboard to quickly type complicated passwords, movie names or search terms. Try it on your Google TV or other Android TV OS devices by adding the remote tile to quick settings on your Android phone, or by visiting the Google TV app.”

The Google TV app is also expanding to 14 new countries over the coming weeks. The Google TV app replaces the previous Google Play Movies & TV app.
