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

Ratings and Reviews
Promising foundation, but could still use improvements
This app is smooth and has an easy-to-navigate layout, but I’m hoping that in time there will eventually be an option to remove shows and/or movies from the “Continue Watching” section of my Home Screen? Also it’d be very nice to be able to track each specific episode of the TV shows I’m watching as I finish a single episode at a time, not just each show in their entirety. Other than that, I really like the app - maybe it could expand to include even more streaming services as movie or TV show sources, but I have no suggestions outside of that.
I often spend money to purchase material to watch if my favorites. However, I have receipts of things I purchased and was able to view it on my library and then go back to watch later and it’s no longer present. I go back to look at how to retrieve my purchase and it says after so many days it’s no longer retrievable as the warranty is no longer valid. So basically I paid for the purchase to have for ever yet I really paid for it to rent because I can’t get it again. So irritated. I don’t have money to just give to you Google especially when I’m a valuable client who purchases a lot. Then, I had to make two accounts because my other one won’t even let me buy anything anymore. I’m not sure if I’ve purchased too much on that account so I had to make another? Not sure but I didn’t use to have so many issues until just recently and it’s not making me really happy. If it continues I’ll just start going with Apple products which I prefer Google.
Behind the curve
The app would have been a good start 5 years ago but when comparing to ReelGood or JustWatch it simply is light years behind. Design wise it certainly doesn’t fit well on iOS. Most importantly you can’t track episodes of seasons. Only supports a limited number of services. For You or Your Stuff should be the default page not Highlights which is just filler. Ideally more blended together. In the end can’t hold a candle to ReelGood and it’s strength of course is being built into GoogleTV so it’s the one we all want to want to use but google makes thst difficult. The only other benefit is it’s search feature is far better than the competitors. You can misname or type but it knows what you mean and you can search for movies similar to another which works well. I don’t expect to see much progress in this app which is too bad since the TV ui on Google TV is much better.
