The Google TV app, previously Play Movies & TV, makes it easy to find and enjoy the entertainment you love from across your apps, all in one place. With Google TV, you'll be able to:
Find what to watch next
Browse movies and TV episodes from across your streaming apps, all in one place and organized into topics and genres. Discover new things with recommendations based on what you love and what’s trending across the services you already have access to. Search for titles to see which apps are streaming them.
Create a list for all your discoveries
Add interesting shows and movies to your Watchlist to keep track of your new discoveries and view them later. The Watchlist is shared across your devices, so you can even add to your Watchlist from your TV or phone and laptop through Search on any browser.
Take your favorites on-the-go
Your recommendations, Library and Watchlist go with you wherever you go, whether it is out the front door or just to the other room. Start streaming right on your mobile device, or download your previously purchased entertainment from your Library to watch when you're not connected.
Use your phone as your Google TV / Android TV remote
With a remote built right into the app, you can find something great to watch even when the couch has eaten your remote. And you can use your phone’s keyboard to quickly type complicated passwords, movie names or search terms on your Google TV or other Android TV OS device

Downloads Don’t Work
What is the deal with downloads? It took me three days to download a show because they kept getting stuck so I had to download each episode separately, and the downloads took a long time per episode (my internet speed is not the issue here). THEN when they were finally done and I tried watching the downloaded shows, it says I can’t because I have no Internet connection. Isn’t that the entire point of downloading a show/movie? On top of that when I do watch with a connection, it stops every five minutes and I either need to fast forward 10 seconds or exit out of the episode and restart.

Can’t Download Anything
2022 - Now GoogleTV. The downloads still don’t work. It keeps on giving me an error any time I try and download something.
They did respond with the typical troubleshooting page. None of those things worked years ago, and they still don’t work now. This is a fine app for streaming things, but if you want to download anything, go elsewhere.
UPDATE: App now crashes whenever I click on. Buy your movies and TV shows elsewhere. UPDATE: They obviously haven’t updated this app in ages. Since buying a new iPad Pro, my movies and TV episodes freeze often, and I still can’t download anything. UPDATE: Still can’t download anything. It’s been repeatedly crashing while watching anything I’ve purchased. And now the app itself crashes every time I open it. NOT HAPPY googleplay. Purchase movies and TV shows elsewhere. Original Review. I’ve been using googleplay for years, and, overall, have been fairly happy with it. I haven’t been able to download anything on the app for months now though, and that makes me very unhappy, as I travel frequently. I contacted them, was told that they were aware of the problem, were working on it, and there was nothing to be done on my end. It’s obvious it’s not something they are very keen to fix, and I find that incredibly frustrating.

I guess I was hoping that you could watch shows in the app instead of being redirected, but it is a nice hub of all you tv apps. It would be nice if you could connect the apps so that you can see what you’ve been watching in the app like with Apple TV.
