Google Play Movies v4.9 includes several subtle UI tweaks and prepares Watchlist price comparisons [APK Teardown]

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

While most of Google's core apps have gone through some pretty monumental changes in their adoption of Google's Material Theme, many of the other apps have been slower to take on a new look. In some cases, like the latest Play Movies & TV app, the changes are also much gentler, spanning over the course of a few versions.

You can now access Google Play Movies content via Google Home

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Google Home can start playback of video content from plenty of streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. This has been a thing since shortly after Home launched, but Google's own Play Movies platform was not included for some reason. After getting some hints last week that the feature would arrive, it's now official.

To launch content from your Google Play Movies library, just tell Assistant what you want to watch. It really is that easy—no setup is required to use Play Movies.

Google Home may have playback controls for Play Movies soon

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

Google's Home/Assistant have been able to pull media from your Netflix subscription for a while now, but playback for first-party Play Movies content has been unavailable. Based on recent reports, that may be set to change. For some, media in Play Movies can now be triggered for playback on a Chromecast by asking a Google Home.

We were tipped off to the new behavior by Trent Archer, who was able to record the video above demonstrating the new feature.

Google Play Movies v4.3 prepares configuration options for streaming services [APK Teardown]

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

Google recently launched a new feature that suggests various streaming services when you're looking at TV shows and movies to watch. The latest update doesn't appear to do any more than ensure that feature is available, assuming it hadn't already rolled out to you. However, it looks like there's still a little more to come. It looks like we'll also get the option to configure those streaming services and cable subscriptions to get better suggestions.

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

The latest version of Google Play Movies & TV is making the rounds, and this one has quite a bit to discuss. There are several surface-level changes, including a new bottom nav bar, improved support for Rotten Tomatoes, and even some rearrangements to the screens in the app. Digging a bit deeper, we can also see there's a new Guide screen in development, some degree of support for external content providers, and even a rating system for content.

Update Notes for Android Wear, Play Store, Maps, YouTube and YouTube Kids, Project Fi, and more (Mar 4, 2018)

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

Play Movies & TV v3.28 relocates movie trailers and adds language information to TV shows [APK Teardown]

Friday, October 6th, 2017

After Google's event finished yesterday, a stream of app updates began rolling out. Among them, Play Movies and TV saw a relatively simple update, but it has a couple of changes that are worth pointing out. The thumbnails for movie trailers are gone, but you can still watch them by tapping on the cover art. Also, TV shows now include the language of captions and audio tracks. A teardown also shows there may be something happening with Disney Movies Anywhere.

Google Play Movies seems to be moving to match Apple’s new $19.99 UHD pricing

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

uhd

A number of new releases on Google Play Movies have seen their prices for UHD copies lowered substantially, and you've probably got Apple's new 4K version of Apple TV to thank. When Apple announced it would charge the same price for UHD as HD movies (with in-place upgrades - something Play is not offering, sadly), it was probably inevitable that other streaming movie platforms would see their prices drop, as well.
