Google TV replaces Play Movies & TV on Android

Google TV replaces Play Movies & TV on Android

The app focuses heavily on content one can buy or rent on the Play Store at present. However, with the update slated to turn it into Google TV, it may become much more like many other smart-TV content aggregators instead, as the app “learns” the user’s preferences and starts to show them shows or movies they might like in the new window-heavy interface from any other apps or sources as available.

Google has announced that its Android Play Movies & TV app would be renamed Google TV in a forthcoming version. This will align the app’s design with the Mountain View company’s current “one-stop-shop” smart-screen UI, which includes a trend-based content carousel and watchlist. Play Movies & TV for Android is now the official Google TV app for this platform. As a result, its UI should soon begin to resemble that of new smart TVs and TV devices with the corresponding OS from TCL, Realme, or Sony. This means that it has the potential for far greater functionality than it has now.

The app will stil have a Watchlist, however, which Google touts as editable on the go or from devices in other rooms at home. Nevertheless, the user should not lose access to their current purchases or rentals from the Play Store; it may just be mixed into the new style of feed. The Google TV for Android roll-out should be complete after a few weeks from now (October 6, 2021).
