Google Play Movies App Updated, Brings New Functionality For Finding New Shows


The official Play Movies & TV app from Google received an update today, just nearly missing the update festival Google held yesterday with all of its other apps. The update isn’t anything too major, but does bring several bug fixes, and the ability to buy the next episode in a series directly through the application. The app now also allows users to browse by TV show in the “My TV Shows” tab on the sidebar. 

What’s New:

  • Browse by TV show in “My TV Shows”.
  • Buy the next episode directly from the app.
  • Several bug fixes.

Go grab it.

    Stop teasing and release Kit-Kat and the Nexus 5 already, Google.

    • AbbyZFresh

      Kit Kat is basically all these updates they been releasing today and yesterday. The only changes to Kit Kat are gonna be a slight design modificatin in my opinion.

      • Droidzilla

        I’m just antsy because the wife shattered her Nexus 4.

  • I always get updates like this a week or two late. It’s so frustrating…

  • Gnex

    Google, please update Chrome for Android and make it GOOD.

    • Booyah

      It’s great on my Moto X.

      • Gnex

        Not so great on mine. Freezes frequently, doesn’t scroll smoothly, pinch to zoom is horrendously slow. Had to install the good ol’ AOSP browser after I rooted.

        • Booyah

          I’d get a new Moto X under your warranty. Every Moto X I’ve seen has been super fluid. There shouldn’t be any hiccups at all.

          • Gnex

            The only part of the X that isn’t really smooth is Chrome. Just try scrolling down/up a page. Compare it to dolphin Next browser, which is built from source. You’ll notice a SIGNIFICANT difference in overall responsiveness. Just try it.

          • Booyah

            Scrolling up/down in Chrome is the smoothest I’ve seen in a browser on a phone. I’m telling you that you may have a defective device. Or factory reset. There should be no lag. None.

            nope not noticing that here

        • Robert Macri

          Open Chrome -> Settings -> Developer Tools -> Uncheck Enable tilt scrolling and Uncheck Enable USB Web Debugging.

          That speeds things up a bit.

    • Droidzilla

      Great on my Nexus 4. Maybe try reinstalling it?

    • Alexander Garcia

      I feel ya’ 100%. Chrome for Android is horrendously buggy and laggy. AOSP Browser all the way every day! =)

      Dolphin 4 Lyfe! EEEEE EEEE! <— Dolphin sounds………sorry

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    “Buy next episode” check it out and seems they really mean that literally…. as in just the next episode after the one you watched, even if theres are 10 episodes after the last one you watched. I don’t understand why I need to go the playstore on my phone to find new shows. EVERYTHING Movie and TV show related should be built into the app. Why can’t I just buy from the app?
