Wont use screen properly on iPhone X
I am disappointed to find that the Google Movie Player isn't yet equipped to maximise screen space on the iPhone X.
I always buy my movies, rather than rent and use Google Play as my source even though iOS is my tech platform of choice. I always buy HD versions and pay a substantial premium for doing so.
So when my phone is where I watch a large proportion of my movies and having a new iPhone X with an OLED screen, I was very disappointed to find that this app uses only about 70% of the screen. I get that some aspect ratios might not allow screen. Use to be maximised both in height and width, but on the iPhone X it's like 15% above 15% below and 15% either end that is unused.
I am praying that Google are working on it and that s forthcoming app update will correct the issue.
I don't like slamming app developers in reviews and would have reported it in support, but there was no 'report an issue' link when I went to support, only help pages, so here I am.
My Google Play balance is blocked
I was victim of a gift card scam, which I reported to Google. They informed me the gift cards had been redeemed by the scammers, where in fact this was not true and only about half had been redeemed. I managed to redeem the other gift cards myself, in the hope of getting a refund. Google informed me that refunding was not possible. I then attempted to use the balance I had redeemed, but I was asked to verify my purchase because suspicious. I submitted all the receipts and photos of the gift cards, but my balance is still blocked because “ According to our systems, the Google Play Gift Card that you have submitted has already been redeemed in an account.”
This is ridiculous. Not only did they mislead me when I was informed that the cards had been redeemed, but when I actually managed to redeem some before the scammers did, I still was not allowed to use that balance for any purchase. Clearly Google knows that by blocking my balance they retain the money without giving me the possibility to spend it, so it’s basically free money for them. And instead of tracking the balance I lost in the scam and refunding, they block ME for a situation where I was just the victim.
I sincerely hope someone from Google support will see this and attempt to get in touch to resolve this situation, otherwise I will have to contact the relevant authorities, as I am being denied the use of a purchase that I LEGALLY AND PERSONALLY made.
Reconsider Your Purchases
I used to love this app, but over the past several weeks it has been riddled with bugs that render it unworthy of the very purpose for which it was made.
The app suddenly quits, movies play with mismatched audio and picture, wrong runtimes, the inability to move back and forward (which causes it to jump to the end), etc.
The only certain way to watch anything is to download it or cast it (app still quits unexpectedly), otherwise you are wasting money buying/renting movies.
I've been waiting for an update for weeks but so far, nothing.
Maybe the virus situation is to blame for that, but until they do fix it, consider buying/renting your content elsewhere. I know I may have to :(
