Google just remembered that Android tablets exist, and the company has announced “Entertainment Space,” a new, tablet-exclusive interface that the company says is “a one-stop, personalized home for all your favorite movies, shows, videos, games and books.”
Google’s blog post is vague about the details of Entertainment Space. Is Space an app? Is it a new home screen, which would give Google a similar UI to a Fire tablet? Here’s a report from The Verge that fills in some of the blanks: Entertainment Space is a new home screen page.
Just like how the Google Discover news feed lives on the left side of a home screen or how Samsung puts “Bixby Home” over there, Entertainment Space will be the new left-most home screen for tablets, replacing Discover. So for apps, widgets, and a customizable home screen, you’ll have the main home screen page. For media, you have this big custom interface on the left.
