Google Play Movies & TV
By Google, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Google Play Movies & TV syncs movies and TV shows from your Google Play account so that you can watch them on an iOS device, on any HDTV using Chromecast or on Apple TV using AirPlay. In-app purchase is not supported, so sign in to Google Play online.
Open Google Play Movies & TV, then search for movies and shows, and manage your wishlist and library. Download and watch from anywhere, even when not connected.
When you sign up for Google Play Family Library, you and up to 5 family members can share movies, TV shows and more across devices.
What's New in Version 2.9.0102
* Bug fixes and performance improvements
Works well and as expected. Streaming is smooth and you can download video for offline viewing. The chromecast support is also working well. The only drawback is that you cannot buy/rent movie directly from the app; probably because of apple rules.
Google doesn't half make things difficult.
Is it really true that I need to purchase a movie via a web page and then use this Google Play app to watch it?
The GP app allows you to make wishlist selections under your account but not purchases.
What am I missing here? The app support implies I need to use the Google Store app (which when searched for on the App Store here returns the Google Play app, which of course I already have and isn't the same thing) to purchase a movie and then I watch it on the Google Play app.
Clearly I must be doing something wrong, but if it's proving difficult for a professional web designer then clearly the Google Play app just isn't intuitive enough.
Good for viewing/casting but why not buying movies through the app
Works fine for viewing and casting movies but it is frustrating to have to switch to the website to buy movies before watching them. Why not let users buy through the app?
