Notable New iPad Apps: Google Play Movies & TV

Share this:

Chromecast

Google Play Movies & TV is a new app for the iPad and iPhone that lets you watch movies and TV shows that you bought or rented through Google Play.

The app has a very bare bones UI, with just 3 sections – Watch Now, My Movies, and My TV Shows. Watch Now shows your most recently viewed item. My Movies and My TV Shows show your recently purchased or rented items in those categories.

You can’t rent or buy anything within the app itself (due to App Store restrictions), but it will show any movies or shows you’ve paid for in the Google Play Store instantly.

I haven’t spent enough time in the Google Play Movies & TV store yet to see how good the range of selections is, but I’m happy to see another source of content available on the iPad – and especially another one that supports Google’s excellent Chromecast device.

Here’s an App Store link for Google Play Movies & TV; it’s a free app and a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
