Check out the new look of the updated app below. We'll continue to add more partners over time. It will also include a new watchlist tab that makes it easier to save shows and movies to watch later. All you have to do is long press on any show or movie and add it to your watchlist. It also lists third-party apps and streaming platforms that currently have rights to your desired content.
In the watchlist tab, we'll show you when it becomes available to buy or rent on Play, if the price has recently dropped, or if it is now available to stream. These updates will be rolling out to Android phones and tablets in the U. Google is also adding quick access to genres, aiming to take you to a good pick much quicker than before when you had to scroll down a long list. There was a time when you either watched something on a physical disc, or you streamed it through one of the very few services available. But for those that do work, you can just tap and the show or movie will automatically open and start playing in the respective app. The app will also keep track of your tastes with a rating system and suggest shows based on what you have watched and rated. Google will then tell you everywhere that you're able to stream that show, and you can just tap on whichever one you're interested in to start watching or start the purchase process.
The app will now allow users to see which streaming app is playing specific shows and help discover something entirely new to watch. Unfortunately, you'll notice that the glaring omission right now is Netflix. The update means that when you search for a show within the app, you'll be told which app or service you can use to watch it -- regardless of whether you're a subscriber or not. That app has a similar functionality, aggregating shows and movies across various services and showing them to you in one place. There are so many streaming apps and services to choose from, it can be hard to know where to look when you want to watch something. .
The is also being updated to include similar functionality. Google says that the features will come to Android phones and tablets in the U. There was a choice, but it was also easier to keep track of. Both companies are trying to act as a bridge between you and these other video apps, which sometimes have cluttered or bad interfaces. Now with so many streaming services available, it can be tough to figure out where a show is streaming. .
