Google TV has recently been showing a “Personalized ads update.”First of all, this is not a software update but rather a disclosure. When clicked, this notification in Quick Settings opens a dialog box.
Your Google Account information and activity on Google TV, as well as other Google products and services like YouTube and Search, may be used to create personalized ads when they are displayed.
Ads on Google TV and partner apps in Google-owned ad spaces are personalized using this data and activity. If the signed-in account’s age is under 18, advertisements cannot be personalized. Your action and Google Record data are not imparted to accomplice applications and your action data from these accomplice applications isn’t imparted to research.
We are aware of no actual adjustments or additions to the settings for Google TV. After reading, you can only close the dialog box by following the instructions in the message. The platform already offers personalized ads that are linked to your Google Account. The company introduced “My Ad Center” in November to allow customers to personalize their advertising based on interests and brands.
Similar to Android phones, you can reset or delete your advertising ID in Google TV by going to Settings > Privacy > Ads.
At last, the fact that this is referred to as an “update” is particularly perplexing, as this message about personalized ads is seen by many Google TV users, including Chromecast owners.
