Google Videos Coming To Your Phone In The Very Near Future?

Google looks to be prepping for a release of their Videos app for smartphones very shortly. For some lucky users, it has been showing up in the Android Market, then disappearing though. There’s only a few things Google really needs to implement with this release for it to be successful – Allow rooted phones to use it, lower the renting price of movies, and make sure there aren’t device compatibility issues like we’ve seen from competitors. But alas, most of these will not happen. We can dream, right? 

With competition like Hulu+ and Netflix, I think it will be tough for Google Videos to get its foot in the door. As of July 1st though, Google seems to be in preliminaries of acquiring Hulu. Game changer coming soon?

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

    I wish to express my thanks to you just for rescuing me from this trouble. Just after exploring through the the net and coming across ways which were not productive, I figured my life was gone. Being alive minus the answers to the issues you have sorted out all through your entire post is a critical case, as well as ones that would have negatively affected my entire career if I had not encountered your site. Your good skills and kindness in taking care of the whole lot was crucial. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a step like this. I’m able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this high quality and amazing guide. I won’t be reluctant to refer your web blog to any person who should have direction on this topic.

    should work great with my new tiered data plan from verizon. oh wait…im going to have to count kilobytes now

  • Jason Paninski

    by “near future” i think you mean by 2020. that seems more accurate the way new features and devices are released

  • Ioannis Stasinopoulos

    I’m afraid that these streaming programs are mostly hubs for expensive Hollywood blockbuster trash.

    I hope google differentiates themselves from the pack.

    Hulu would be nice on my Xoom, but there is NO WAY I’m paying for a subscription.

  • Stelv81

    I can’t wait to watch Hall Pass on my 4″ screen. Much better than my 40″ HD TV. This would be nice if one traveled a lot and there were no TV’s in ones hotel room. It’s also much better watching a movie on a 4″ cell phone opposed to a laptop computer.

    Bring on Netflix or hula on all phones and tablets and call it a day! No one wants to pay per movie fee.

  • Bert336

    as long as it doesn’t have outdated movies like the online package of Netflix ill be game….

  • Mctypething

    If they could increase their selection of movies from awful to mediocre, they might get a foot in the door. Every time I search for a movie I want to see, it’s not available.

    i want to pay one fee not per view we need a monthly subscribtion like netflix

      which is what hulu + is… kinda…

      • tjhrulz

        Then maybe we need a movies+ (It fits the new Google+ scheme :P)

    If they block access to rooted phone like the Xoom then it’ll be something I won’t even have to bother thinking about running CM7.  I’ll just stick to Netflix.  Plus I can’t imagine paying a premium rental fee for a phone, it would have to be discounted (by half?) to make it worth it for me even on my 4″ screen.

  • Mr.Joe

    Ditched Movie rentals when I got netlix.  Paying per rental gets crazy expensive. 

    • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

      Indeed. 

    • tjhrulz

      Maybe Google could have a monthly subscription? I would dig something like that

    It’d be kinda nice if they’d finish rolling out Videos to their Honeycomb devices before working on phones. I would much rather watch a movie on a 10.1″ screen than my phone.

    • Anonymous

      The idea is that with Ice Cream Sandwich, anything they roll out will be for tablets and phones, as they will both run ICS. Which honeycomb device are you talking about?

    Hopefully this won’t be like Netflix where it only works on a limited amount of phones.

      “Google Videos Coming To Your Phone In The Very Near Future?”……. YEAH RIGHT I HAVE A THUNDERBOLT!

    Still kinda miffed about the fact that my Tab doesn’t have this app yet (and it’s not rooted).  

    For those that might ask, my phone was running SynErgy Theme over CM7 for this screenshot, so I won’t be able to run it even After it rolls out.  But I confirmed with other’s that it wasn’t just my phone.

    I have Netflix and several movies on my phone, yet I never actually watch anything on it…
