Revamped User Interface
The overall user interface on the Astro Box and Astro GO has been simplified for a sleeker, friendlier look to highlight the content, which include redesigns of posters, easier access to popular movie franchises and live programmes from the Home Page, new cursor, faster access to TV Guide and a “See all” button on title rows to allow you to view all the content you love.
Updates on Astro GO
With the new Picture-in-Picture Mode, users can now continue watching their favourite shows in a smaller floating player even when they are using other apps on their mobile device. Additionally, Interactive Mode will now launch automatically for the Premier League and UEFA Champions League so users can access instant highlights, match statistics, player statistics and fixtures of upcoming matches without the hassle of initiating it manually.
Other updates on Astro GO include a new bottom menu bar in the app for faster access to thousands of content and better visibility of featured title rows such as “Live Events”.
