We continue to roll out updates to our Android mobile app's navigation, and we want to give you a map to find your way in the latest app.
In our updated app, our Home screen has been updated to be easier to navigate and to highlight content for you. Our latest featured episodes will be ready for you to play at the top of the screen. Below that you can scroll sideways through popular shows. Scrolling vertically will take you to New Episodes, Live Events, Continue Watching, and other curated content.
Continue Watching lets you pick up your most recently viewed videos where you left off. Live Events will take you to any events that are streaming live now or will be live soon. Past that you can scroll through the most recently posted videos. The bar across the bottom can be used for quick navigation to other parts of the app.
Once you have an episode playing, you can go full screen by rotating your phone to be horizontal. Or you can send it to a Chromecast device or cast it to compatible smart TVs (including Samsung, LG, and Vizio). Tap on the casting icon and then follow the onscreen prompts to connect to a Chromecast device or other compatible casting receiver.
We have newly implemented a new Photos screen and different MotorTrend site navigation to highlight our editorial content for you. You can scroll sideways through the epic images and, if you want to see them bigger then you can tap on one and rotate your phone horizontally. Scrolling vertically will take you to more automotive reads. Clicking Read More will take you to the direct site and article of our MotorTrend.com pages.
Discover is the next screen and the screen includes search as well. Quick filters can be applied to the shows, including Live to get to live events quickly. Originals will narrow it down to MotorTrend original productions. The search function includes auto-complete to help speed your search. The search results will have a sideways scrolling list of shows, with episode results scrolling vertically below that.
My Stuff is where you can get to your saved shows and episodes. When you add a series or episode to be saved to your personal list on any of our apps, this is where it will be. When you first go there it will be empty but you can quickly discover and save shows for the next time in the app.
The Profile screen has been updated for faster access to information. This includes your Account Information (your login information, change password, and subscription information) General settings (push notes & dark/light theme).
Alerts (programming information) will indicate if you have a new message to view, and if you tap on a message you can start streaming by tapping, or you can delete it through the three-dot menu on the right.
Support Center (in-app messaging with firstname.lastname@example.org and a link to this help center), there will be an indicator when the team has replied to you in the app.
