Though there are many features of Galaxy S5 that prove to be handy in our everyday life, however, Samsung WatchON 2.0 app might just be the one we are looking for that simplifies our room. With WatchON, the users can check what’s happening on TV, control it, set top box, can share content between different devices, and much more. Ideally, it is a new global remote and private TV guide app with increased usability and User Interface.
Just as easy it is to use, there were many difficulties initially while developing the app. Galaxy S5 is used globally, and so, as a result, Samsung’s WatchON 2.0, was particularly targeted as a global remote and private TV guide app. Therefore was needed to make sure that it meets the requirements of the audience worldwide.
WatchON 2.0 app is simpler and much more intuitive as compared to its predecessor. Moreover, the accessibility has also been increased on search as well as on remote control features that allows the users to find the required content much easily. More importantly, the process of installation has been decreased from 15 steps to just 3 steps.
After having been confirmed that WatchON 2.0 works absolutely fine in different areas of the world, the engineers needed to work at the headquarters of as many as 60 different countries, and some teams had to travel to at least three or four countries, without any particular manual or direction for reference. However, this information gathering mission and data was extremely useful for launching this app.
Also, the marketing team had their work stopped for them. Hyunyoung Park, the assistant manager of Video Service Group, said that the alliance between Netflix, the biggest video streaming company in US, and Samsung was attained after several attempts. Moreover, he had to create smaller but aspiring start-ups to join in order to create WatchON 2.0 powered eco-system, which was a success.
However, Robert Hodges, the Assistant Manager of Video Service Group, said that it was not difficult for the marketing team to access the European market, especially with its spilling over small sized service alliances without a combined platform. Despite the difference in the locations and size of international business partners, the team thought that these partnerships were rewarding, as something new was added with every mutual effort.
All the developers, engineers and marketers have and are working vigorously to create new markets for TV applications and take a leading position in the newly developed market. It is expected that the lives of people, at least in their living rooms, would become more convenient, with this WatchON 2.0.
