Developers please update this app

I usually don’t leave reviews but please update this app back in 2020 this app did its job things weren’t great but they were fine 2021 same story did okay a few bugs here and there but still good 2022 there’s audio cracking(chirp noises,etc)playback skipping(it will jump ahead or back minutes randomly after pausing on its own) I’m not sure what happened between then and now but this app has all my favorite movies and I want to continue to use the app cause it’s not bad it just isn’t aging well or whatever and needs some TLC from the developers. I’m hopeful a patch or update will come soon.

Dumpster Fire of UI and UX

For a Google product, this app is astonishing awful. I’ve used more of it recently for tv shows I love that have left Netflix and other streaming platforms. Here are the problem areas: 1) you can purchase all seasons of a series (1-10) but the interface doesn’t acknowledge you bought all of them and doesn’t separate them out. So you have to search hundreds of episodes in a single line and the same seasons you purchased that are broken out by season ask you to purchase them again to view them in that menu. It’s absurd. 2) there is no “return to view” or “continue watching” orientation in the UI except the one episode you were in anchored at the top of the experience. Once you complete that episode, you have to go back to the menu and find where you were and play the next episode. 3) the experience claims to allow “binge watching” but most shows do not auto play the next episode even when the feature is turned on. After each episode you have to go find your place and play the next which makes it even harder when 1) and 2) above are so poor. Honestly guys, put your celebrated “design sprints” in action and get the right folks from product, ux and design in a room and fix this shitshow. And maybe look at how seasons are sold and appear in the UI vs. buying each individual episode. Not rocket science here

Downloads

The idea with purchasing a movie, and downloading it, is that you can play it anytime you want, without having to be connected to the internet. If that’s your objective, do not purchase movies from Google, and attempt to play them with this app. When they’ve been downloaded, you still need to be connected to the internet to play them…intermittently. Most times it won’t start unless you’re connected to the internet. If you want to fast forward the movie, it will hang up; you need to reconnect to the internet. You have to close the app and reopen it, and then you’re back to the part of the movie you started at, not the part you ended at. I certainly bought the movies; but do I own them? Apparently not unless Google has unrestricted access to my computer (via their app) the whole time I’m watching the movie I bought. Guess what happens when you try deleting their hideous app and reinstalling it (because maybe it’s just broken); you get to re-download all of your movies.

(Update)
No response from Google. Still can’t play my purchased and downloaded movies without being connected to the internet. Worthless app-what a pain-if I could give this app ‘0’ stars I would. Don’t purchase movies from Google!!
