Back in December, Google handed out 75% off codes to everyone to try and get them to rent a movie on Google Play. If you missed out, you now have a second chance, as Google opened up the “75% off any one movie rental” promo again last night.
To claim, all you need to do is open up Google Play, jump through to the Entertainment (on app) or Movies & TV sections, and hunt for the red banner that tells you about the 75% off deal. Click the banner, tap “Continue” in the prompt that shows, and then be on your way to renting at a discounted rate. (more…)

Fittingly on the day Nexus 6 pre-orders went live, Google has officially unveiled an updated Play Movies & TV app with a look inspired by Material Design. That is not all that has changed, though, as the app is gaining automatic Info Cards, a tweaked “Watch Now” tab, plus a new icon.
The influence of Material Design is everywhere. The slide-out menu has shed its Holo appearance, buttons and iconography float above parallax images, and every header is distinctly red. The result is a much cleaner, more intuitive interface. (more…)
