Never finishes a movie
by E$_29 on 2019/08/19 03:13
Absolutely terrible. You never finish a single movie! A time out is inevitable and constantly crashes when the movie is playing. Worse on the Samsung television!!! Seriously, get your act together Google.
Disappointed Multi Platform User
by dna514 on 2019/08/18 13:33
This app has been my go to for my digital libraries on iPad for the last few years, and I travel quite a lot. The offline feature is the biggest featurefor me. A lot of people one starring this app because they cant purchase movies throughit must not understand that is Apples rules - their quest for monopoly removes your choices as a consumer. Use your web browser to purchase and the movie is in the app immediately. Finally updated so the app fills the iPad Pro display!

ZERO SUPPORT, ZERO REFUNDS
by Keith C 504 on 2019/08/05 02:25
GARBAGE, THEY STOLE MY MONEY, and there is absolutely NO support for this kind of thing. I spent hours trying to reach some form of support, with nothing but pathetic and misleading tips. Google it the worst.
Good but...
by Jaxerstar on 2019/08/04 20:28
It’s great for watching movies and tv but it’s really annoying that you cant use the app to purchase or rent content
Still no ability to filter or sort movies
by MoreCowBell999 on 2019/08/04 15:04
Still no absolute to filter or sort movies after the August 2019 update. So disappointing.
Great app. Too bad it's limited by Apple
by Jeff Chapman on 2019/08/03 17:14
Apple requires all purchases to go through them so they can get their 30% cut. That's why you can only use this app to watch previously purchased movies and not buy them through the app. Another reason my next phone won't be an iPhone.
Need zoom feature and fix low quality
by rf15e on 2019/07/30 13:01
Used this app on an iPhone X and Xs max and it needs the feature to pinch to zoom. All the movies are in the correct format to watch full screen on these phones but you can cause it won’t let you dull screen it. Also the quality is horrible. Does this only allow you watch in 720p? It looks terrible on the iPad.
Great way to watch your move library
by jdecelles on 2019/07/28 12:11
I buy movies from a lot of services and most of them support Movies Anywhere. I was glad to find this all app on the Appstore because I used it on all of my other devices and it's a great way to manage your movie library when you buy from different services.
No

Eh
by uggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh on 2019/07/24 23:28
It’s a good streamer but only when connected to WiFi. It won’t stream over network and trying to use the help and support section crashes the app. Not to mention you cannot purchase anything from the app itself. You need to go to a different app, make a purchase then return to this one to stream it.
Downloading Issues
by 3609phoenix on 2019/07/22 23:56
I downloaded this app so I can watch movies on my IPad Pro. After seeing how great this looks I started to download all my movies for offline viewing. It took me three days and a lot of internet use but I finally downloaded all of them. After a few weeks and an update to my IPad all of my movies show they are not downloaded and now I have to repeat this process. Really?!! What sense does it make for me to go through that long process again and wonder if this will happen again. I’m not sure who is at fault, Apple because they hate that I won’t purchase their movies,or Google because they hate I’m watching it on the IPad. There is no guarantee this won’t happen again, and I don’t want to burn through unnecessary data. SOMEBODY PLEASE GET IT TOGETHER!!!

Update to support new iPad Pros
by T0rul3 on 2019/07/12 12:27
The app works okay for what I need it, but is it very annoying that the new iPad Pros have been out for 8months or so, yet the screen size is still no supported. Can you please just update the app to support the new screen sizes?

by Anonymous7532bjkkk on 2019/07/08 04:05
Yes it’s cheaper than on iTunes but not worth the headache of constant interruptions. Btw those are not due to slow internet. It’s Google Play. They should have called it Google Stop.
Movies aren’t downloading.
by folir on 2019/07/07 04:43
Enjoy it when it works, but movies that I’ve had for years are suddenly not loading properly. It may be time for another app update. The last one seems to have been over a year ago.
Good but could be great
by Myappleid45 on 2019/06/30 12:45
I love the app and fact that my whole movie collection is not only digital but if I lose a device I don't loose my movie collection. 1 request, can you add the option to create playlists? Play music has the, youtube has them, hell even netflix and hulu give you a favorites list usable in the apps. 100+ movie now it would be great to organize the collection.
Not Helpfull
by vffhjfffhn on 2019/06/29 04:36
Over the course of six years I bought almost 100 movies on Google play. I loved the service and the ability to watch the movies anywhere and keep them forever. Well, this came to an end when I had to switch email addresses. My new email address was also Gmail but even though I spoke with customer service a representative and a manager they refuse to switch the movies I’ve paid for from one Gmail account to the other. Even though I could verify they were both my accounts. Not only will I be buying movies from amazon in the future but I am now slowly phasing out any Google products that I have.
Can’t link Smart TV
by FireSmack on 2019/06/28 22:45
When I launch this app first thing Google says is it wants access to my microphone so it can hear the signal from the TV. No problem, I give it permission. It says to turn the TV off of mute so the app can hear the TV emit a sound containing the code. So I do that. Turn the volume way up. No sound ever comes from the TV. So eventually Google says just go ahead and enter the code manually and press Next. So I enter the code that’s on the TV and I press next and nothing happens. I tap the next button about 100 times, and nothing at all happens. No errors, no ackknowledgement, nothing. I tried this several times with different codes that the TV gave me, tried exiting the app on the TV and on the phone and re-launching them. No joy. This app doesn’t work. Goodbye.
This App doesn’t work

$30 in movies and cannot play on TV - iPad to converter to tv. Are you kidding me?
Google Play
by Rutschmanch on 2019/06/26 15:55
Google play is a good option for watching movies however I can’t purchase new movies in the app, just gives me the error of this device is not supported for in app purchases, kind of a big deal if it’s supposed to be a place to “rent and sell” movies to watch....
Zoom / fill screen?
by Monkeysee2003 on 2019/06/24 19:24

What's the point of this app?
by iHiJump on 2019/06/04 23:39
I open the app and I get "Recommended by Play" and a list of movies in screen- covering size. Nothing else. No genres... No options.. Just a search box.
This app is better on the android device

Family account
by lou1226lou on 2019/06/01 19:53
Very disappointed our family accounts can’t share rentals. This needs to be changed. My s/o travels for work & it’s frustrating when we both have to rent the same movie if one of us rents a movie & thinks it’s fantastic enough the other should watch it too.
Please add full screen view.
by Angel Levi on 2019/06/01 13:25
Latest update one year ago? Really? In any case please add the option for full screen view.

Better on a Samsung
by nellie bertrum on 2019/05/31 05:51
I used to have a Samsung and this automatically came with my that phone which probably explains why it was much easier to use on my Samsung. Definitely works better on a Samsung than an iPhone.

Works great in general but not formatted for iPad Pro yet :(
by Jess_Simpson13 on 2019/05/15 03:37
I have a large google play movies collection I love to watch on my iPad. Sadly since buying my new iPad Pro the movies don’t play in full screen, instead showing a 1 inch bar on the left and right. Oddly the YouTube app will play the same movies in full screen but Google doesn’t permit downloading movies in the YouTube app. Will go back to 5 stars when I can watch movies in full screen.
It won’t work!!

No Sound on Apple TV
by Jerry's ambivalence on 2019/05/13 01:34
I have multiple Apple TV’s and multiple iPads yet I cannot get sound to work whenever I use either iPad and Airplay it to either TV. The video is there but there is no sound. And then when the iPad screen inevitably turns off from no use it stops playing on the TV. Google...make an App for the Apple TV. This is TERRIBLE unless you want to watch videos on your iPad. TERRIBLE!
It’s good but needs updated
by Spaz04 on 2019/05/12 17:09
It’s good app but it needs upgraded to accommodate the bigger screens on the new IPhone. No adjustments are available for this currently.
A complete waste of time
by Southtampacane on 2019/05/11 15:23
I missed half an hour of an episode of a CBS show and my on demand will let you watch but no fast forward allowed. So I’d have to sit for 90 minutes waiting for the part I missed. So Google Play says I can see the episode for 1.99. Okay. Fine The website says I can only watch on an iPhone or IPad. Okay why? Don’t argue. Just download the app. I did. It seems to recognize me fine but won’t allow for “in-app” purchases? Look for help but it is nowhere to be found. Delete the app because this is a complete waste of my time. It’s just TV and it makes no sense to be this frustrated for a problem created by a bad DTV DVR and CBS incompetence
Google play moves and tv
by Music 9.3.2 on 2019/05/06 11:45
This app I find very useful cause whenever you can’t afford to buy cable to get good tv shows around here other than stupid rabbit ears then this app is all you need it’s useful I can watch whatever I want whenever I want!
Can only watch movies purchased sometimes.
by StrengthTruth on 2019/05/06 02:39
I keep having to delete and reinstall app to watch what I already paid for. The app signed me out of my google account. Grrrrr
Pathetic issues

Won’t buy anything more since it won’t use my iPad’s screen fully... after over half a year it’s still not to iPad Pro 11 inch dimensions.
Still holding put hope
by PePe CoCo65 on 2019/05/02 01:35
Just downloaded this app because it is the only service that offers "The Taking of Deborah Logan" streaming. I love the security of being able to use PayPal. I went thru the motions linking Google Play with my PayPal account, went to purchase a movie, and guess what...DECLINED! How embarrassing! I then begrudgingly entered my same PayPal card number directly to the Google app payment options, and lo and behold no problems...not a good omen when your very FIRST transaction doesn't come to fruition!
Google play
by loooooosssser on 2019/04/28 00:01
What happened to google play! Ever since google plus was closed ! I can’t rent any movies! I tried re setting my pass code ! I also re set my phone . It keeps asking for a pass code on my tv. Can’t change my payment method! Exhausted! I even asked for help no response! Good by google play so sad! I am done.

Useless
by Leeseng Vang on 2019/04/20 02:43
Nothing compare to the web version. Need UI experiences like the web or android app. This is useless and giving a list of tv or movies that I don’t need to see. Google needs to do it better than this.
I like to receive what I’ve paid for
by Nacho333 on 2019/04/16 19:51
When I buy a movie that’s supposed to be 4K or at least better than regular HD, I’d expect to get what I pay for. Now I get to watch a somewhat HD version of Interstellar after purchasing the 4K version. Not to happy about that. I would think it wouldn’t matter that the devices I’ve tried watching them on are new (iPhone X and 2nd generation iPad Pro)! I guess I’ll just had to go back to punching video contact on iTunes. Thought google would treat me well, but I guess I was wrong. Gave 2 stars because my movie was a bit cheaper than other platforms... I guess I see why now.
Literal piece of $%#@!
by 👎🏼🤨😤 on 2019/04/10 03:54

Within the past few days when I try to watch a movie to watch that I have downloaded to view without having to have a strong internet connection, it just shows the loading screen. It will not play the movie. I deleted the download and tried to download it again and it just does the same thing. If I delete the download I can watch the movie that way, but that is not what I want it do.
Doesn’t work

This is the WORST app I have in my phone. I have unfortunately purchased several movies through here. I have the hardest time trying to play the movies I have purchased from this app, it skips, and pulls the whole “we’re having trouble playing this movie” bit. I wish I could take all my movies from this app and put them somewhere else lol. Come one Google, get with it.

Poor excuse for a player
by Thatguy182 on 2019/03/05 13:35
Completely missing some of the most basic things you’d expect from a video player. Things like a way to skip ahead 10/30/whatever seconds and to rewind option, etc. Also, you can’t buy films/shows from the app (because Google and Apple hate each other obviously), no, you have to sign on to your account from a pc (or I’m just guessing an Android device would work too) and make the purchase there. I can live with that last complaint. Having no basic control over things like fast forwarding or rewinding though is just sad and pathetic really.
Bad ratio 😩
by Alrockex on 2019/03/05 05:04
I like google play but the app on Ipad would not play movies full screen 👎🏼 why get an HD movie when cant take advantage of it?
Call them - refunds
by KSK# on 2019/03/04 20:36

No visible 4k upgrades?!?!
by Hailgater108 on 2019/03/01 00:27
Google made a big announcement they would be upgrading pwoole's HD movies to 4K with alerts telling us when we got the upgrades. It appears that's impossible on iPhone. I know this is a competitor platform but giving us a half-baked app that ok not provides half the functionality is not a good way to entice Apple users to switch.

Black bars on sides of iPad Pro 11”
by scarvalho1 on 2019/02/17 18:56
Google please fix this app. I have been waiting months. Pease fix the black bars appearing on sides of iPad Pro 11” for all Google Apps. They currently look aweful and unusable. At moment I am still very loyal to Google ecosystem mostly because up until this iPad 11, movies or music from Google play worked on all my devices. Seems you want to change that. I'm switching out of your ecosystem if you don't fix this asap.

Requires too much effort to watch a movie
by WSFJackson on 2019/02/09 04:43
I have google home, google home app, and play movies app. Still not enough to watch a movie. Requires that I go to my computer to play the move from there. 2 devices and 2 apps later. 1 movie. Google, you can do better than this.
No Roku ratings!
by iPhonePhive on 2019/02/09 01:18
I'm rating this app 1 star because on my Roku you don't show movie ratings. You somehow think showing ratings is going to make me slip over a badly rated movie. Yes it's true. But having no ratings means I skip over all the movies because now I don't use the APP at all. I use Amazon because they show movie ratings. Way to shoot yourself in the foot Google!
No fast forward, no zoom.

by Icequeen313 on 2019/02/04 14:19
Google should let buyers/renters know that you can not watch movies unless you download the play store app, I now have 26 days to buy try and get this movie viewed by my daughter before it expires. It won’t even let me pull the movie up on her phone via my google account. They should not sell movies to people that don’t have access to a google phone, as I could have rented the movie from iTunes and had no problem. 😡

The main reason I got this app and made purchases was because of my 2 year old who loves “Finding Dory” so I bought the movie from Google Play. It worked sure fine when I bought back in middle of December. I’d recently purchased “The Lion King” and my son loves it. I tried to download it to his iPad and by mistake I deleted his “Finding Dory” movie so I thought it wasn’t going to be a big deal if I just download it again but IT IS NOT WORKING!!!! I have done everything... and when I mean everything, I did everything. Obviously got in touch with “Support” and the guy tried to help me as much as he could but didn’t solve the problem. I am upset that I can’t download the movies to my son’s iPad, we have to sit in traffic for near two hrs and that was my only way to keep him entertained but not anymore. Please GOOGLE have an update soon and fix this issue. Sincerely, a desperate mom! 🙏🏻
Downloading Issues
by 3609phoenix on 2019/07/22 23:56
I downloaded this app so I can watch movies on my IPad Pro. After seeing how great this looks I started to download all my movies for offline viewing. It took me three days and a lot of internet use but I finally downloaded all of them. After a few weeks and an update to my IPad all of my movies show they are not downloaded and now I have to repeat this process. Really?!! What sense does it make for me to go through that long process again and wonder if this will happen again. I’m not sure who is at fault, Apple because they hate that I won’t purchase their movies,or Google because they hate I’m watching it on the IPad. There is no guarantee this won’t happen again, and I don’t want to burn through unnecessary data. SOMEBODY PLEASE GET IT TOGETHER!!!
Some Good but More Bad
by steve-of-indiana on 2018/06/14 04:11
I live in a rural location & Internet speed is quite slow the main thing I like about this app is I can download videos & play them through TVs without buffering. There are a LOT of things I do not like about the app - the biggest annoyances are 1) you cannot buy movies through the app 2) the algorithm for "recommended by play" is either badly flawed or does not take into account my purchase history 3) it would really be nice if there was an "ignore list" so that videos that do not interest me would not keep being listed 4) there is not an age level block on the “recommended” list — needed if you want to hand an iPad to a young child I have seen several people indicating they have playback problems. As I mentioned my Internet access is quite slow but I have had good luck downloading movies to my iPad & watching them on a TV that has a Chromecast plugged into HDMI. This also works well when my wife & I visit with our children while their children watch a movie from my iPad on the TV.

This app has been my go to for my digital libraries on iPad for the last few years, and I travel quite a lot. The offline feature is the biggest featurefor me. A lot of people one starring this app because they cant purchase movies throughit must not understand that is Apples rules - their quest for monopoly removes your choices as a consumer. Use your web browser to purchase and the movie is in the app immediately. Finally updated so the app fills the iPad Pro display!
Works, but could use improvement.
by 'Ru on 2018/01/02 06:36
Does the job, but it's really obvious that the video player gets less love than YouTube's. No way to quickly skip back or forward by 10/15 seconds and no fine scrubbing control means good luck trying to back up just enough to hear that one line you missed 5 seconds ago. There's also no custom volume indicator, so anytime you adjust the volume, the giant grey square default iOS overlay pops up and covers half the screen.
I like to receive what I’ve paid for
by Nacho333 on 2019/04/16 19:51
When I buy a movie that’s supposed to be 4K or at least better than regular HD, I’d expect to get what I pay for. Now I get to watch a somewhat HD version of Interstellar after purchasing the 4K version. Not to happy about that. I would think it wouldn’t matter that the devices I’ve tried watching them on are new (iPhone X and 2nd generation iPad Pro)! I guess I’ll just had to go back to punching video contact on iTunes. Thought google would treat me well, but I guess I was wrong. Gave 2 stars because my movie was a bit cheaper than other platforms... I guess I see why now.
I guess it “works” but doesn’t seem to be able to cast to Apple TV
by N0iSEA on 2018/09/03 05:15
I wanted to rent a movie using google play’s service because I got 99 cent rental offer when I bought a new TV. The problem is, how do I watch the rental? Google play movies app is not available and does not cast to Apple TV, Xbox One, Playstation 4, or any device I can think of... I am not really sure what the purpose of this app is. If its just to watch movies on your phone then it Is really useless because there are a ton of apps for that and you can even buy movies on the other apps. I cannot recommend this app until it explains why it should exist.
Immediate regret. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.
by The_Bom.com on 2018/09/17 05:05
I just wanted to rent one movie online and this is one of the few options that pops up to do that. Turns out I have to download the movie using WiFi I don’t have access to. A message keeps popping up saying I can’t watch this movie offline without downloading. I do not have access to WiFi because I have unlimited data on my phone and don’t need WiFi for anything else because I have EXCELLENT service where I am at. The fact that I just paid to watch a movie just to find out that I can not watch that movie is COMPLETE BULL SH!T. I wish I had paid attention to the other reviews. There are so many other options out there. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP.
More GOOD content than Netflix, BUT...
by WizardRascal on 2018/07/07 07:30
Hey, GooglePlay, could you maybe NOT be a slow-assed, piece of crap?! I can’t watch a single thing because you keep buffering and losing connection every 2 to 6 minutes! And I KNOW it’s not the WiFi cuz every other app I use works just fine! It’s ONLY YOU that can’t seem to work properly! I’m paying money just to watch each movie and tv show (which isn’t the easiest thing to afford in this day and age), I’d at least like to be able to watch the whole thing without your stupid loading circle thing every 3 minutes! What is the point in having your app anywhere if it’s impossible to watch any content?! 🤬🤬🤬
Error. Error. Error.
by lovethecatwalk on 2018/05/28 12:04
Every time ai rent a movie it stops playing. It does it several times saying “Error”. It gets very old starting a movie over and over and fast forwarding to where I was. Sometimes accidentally going too far and seeing ahead. When I went to report it, the “Describe your issue” feature was also broken and the app would close completely causing me again, to start over and over. Now I’m leaving feedback here. If this didn’t bug out, it would be the best app out there Roku tv. Wifi and hardline both experienced the issue. I did all troubleshooting suggestions. Still bugged out.
Beyond Satisfied!
by Utahn but not Mormon on 2017/12/07 02:19
As an iPhone user, I was distraught I couldn’t chromecast movies I rented on iTunes. I made a wild guess and looked this up—finding it on a whim. I get to rent movies, watch them on my TV, and the curious cat who obsesses over the cast that I am is satisfied by the app showing me which stars are on screen at all times. Could only be happier if this was advertised better so I didn’t waste so much money on iTunes.
It’s restarts my tv
by GSotoR on 2018/09/24 04:42
I have this app in my Samsung Smart TV. I rented a movie and for some reason the movie freezes and my tv restarts by itself send me out of the app to main apps. I disconnected my tv for a moment. I logout from the app and login again. I don’t know what else to do. I can’t watch the movie. I gonna delete my account from this app. I will go with Apple TV. I never had this bad experience before with this app.
Good, unique actor identification & info, needs ratio formatting
by D Kerr on 2018/09/01 04:52
I like the features overall, but I really want the option to zoom in a little more, and use all the pixels on my iPad (the same option Apple’s Video app has), instead of having a black strip at the top and bottom. I’d like this as a setting option, to either have a zoomed version (cutting off either the sides or top) or the original version.
Needs play list
by Hfkzwlalbfbakkdldlskskaak on 2019/01/14 09:44
I love and will always love google movies. It’s my favorite streaming app and I’m addicted but my mom (not part of technology era) doesn’t know how to use it and I don’t know if it exists but it would just be so easy if u could put together a play list if movies that goes one after the next so it’s easier for her. That would be amazing⭐️
Great way to watch your move library
by jdecelles on 2019/07/28 12:11
I buy movies from a lot of services and most of them support Movies Anywhere. I was glad to find this all app on the Appstore because I used it on all of my other devices and it's a great way to manage your movie library when you buy from different services.
Could Be Better
by MichaelSWalker8 on 2019/01/11 22:35
I find it a bit annoying I cannot rent or buy movies directly from my phone within the app. I have to open a browser on my phone to rent or purchase any content and then return to the app in order to watch it. My second issue may not be Google’s fault since they are in competition with Apple but wouldn’t it be great to have Google Movies and TV as an app for Apple TV? Please continue to improve the app and listen to reviews so you can improve your services. Thanks.
Horrible
by hay1515 on 2018/10/24 01:26
I rented a movie on my smart tv. It wouldn’t play the movie without buffering every few seconds and it wasn’t my internet connection I tested on my phone and it would play but yet it couldn’t stream it to the tv with sound. I got frustrated and moved my Apple TV to the living room and bought the movie on iTunes and it’s working perfect. Thanks for stealing 6 dollars from me google.
Don’t bother
by _minty999 on 2018/07/19 18:42
After buying a 30 min episode - I have spent almost 2 hours trying to get it to work. Following all of the ‘trouble shooting’ through pages and pages of instructions. Being so frustrated with it in the end, I decided to get a refund and was presented with a further list of instructions that is so over the top, I won’t even bother. Which is probably the whole point- so they get to keep the money because they have zero customer support and pages of instructions designed to make you give up on it.
Great app. Too bad it's limited by Apple
by Jeff Chapman on 2019/08/03 17:14
Apple requires all purchases to go through them so they can get their 30% cut. That's why you can only use this app to watch previously purchased movies and not buy them through the app. Another reason my next phone won't be an iPhone.
Offline play is now horrible
by bigdickrandall on 2017/09/13 19:43
It used to be I could watch my offline shows and movies for months with my iPad or iPhone 5s without having to connect to the internet. As I live where internet is intermittent. I have to connect to the internet after only a few episodes. And the worst part is now I have to have internet to use airplay mirror. This used to be a great app. I wish I could get my money back. I will be going to iTunes because when I buy something there isn't all the restrictions like on here.
Download issues
by J_A88 on 2019/04/01 10:38
Within the past few days when I try to watch a movie to watch that I have downloaded to view without having to have a strong internet connection, it just shows the loading screen. It will not play the movie. I deleted the download and tried to download it again and it just does the same thing. If I delete the download I can watch the movie that way, but that is not what I want it do.
The player needs updating
by Mansquatch1968 on 2018/06/08 09:58
The picture quality is fine, but having a slider as the sole functionality for rewinding and fast-forwarding a movie is beyond ridiculous for 2018. There is no excuse for not having at least a 10-second backward and forward button like even the simplest media players do in this day and age. Incredibly frustrating.
Google doesn’t want to pay Apple royalties for in-app digital purchases and it affects the end-user
by Timbo907 on 2018/03/21 18:02
Cannot purchase or rent items from the app. Very inconvenient and not user friendly. The “how do I watch this” link on an item page does not even answer the question. It merely states that purchasing is not supported on this device. What’s the easiest way to rent/buy a movie and watch it? Without a streamlined solution the end-user is going to default to the Apple iTunes Store. Hope your happy Alphabet!
Apple is Greedy and non competitive.
by JE19821012 on 2018/12/18 06:54
This app is great other than the fact Apple is so anti competitive they won’t let google sell movies on their OS. Complete BS. Other than that, app is great. I will just buy my movies through the web interface and call it good. Yeah, you sure showed me Apple.... smh.
Please add 10sec or 15sec rewind and fast forward
by Eli 21 on 2018/10/29 06:21
Hey Google, App works fine I think for the most part. But could you add 10sec or 15sec rewind and fast forward like most videos now have? It would make rewatching a missed part of a movie or show a lot easier. It would also make it easier to find a particular spot in the video playing.
Half an App
by Jon Humphreys on 2018/08/31 03:02
So I will give this app 2 stars because it allows you to watch movies and tv you have purchased from the Google Play store. However, this is really only half an app because you cannot purchase movies or tv from the app. Will rate 5 stars if this gets included. Aside from that, app works perfectly fine - just a huge oversight leaving the store part out of this app (I can’t throw my money at you either :-/).
Family account
by lou1226lou on 2019/06/01 19:53
Very disappointed our family accounts can’t share rentals. This needs to be changed. My s/o travels for work & it’s frustrating when we both have to rent the same movie if one of us rents a movie & thinks it’s fantastic enough the other should watch it too.
Google play moves and tv
by Music 9.3.2 on 2019/05/06 11:45
This app I find very useful cause whenever you can’t afford to buy cable to get good tv shows around here other than stupid rabbit ears then this app is all you need it’s useful I can watch whatever I want whenever I want!
Still holding put hope
by PePe CoCo65 on 2019/05/02 01:35
Just downloaded this app because it is the only service that offers "The Taking of Deborah Logan" streaming. I love the security of being able to use PayPal. I went thru the motions linking Google Play with my PayPal account, went to purchase a movie, and guess what...DECLINED! How embarrassing! I then begrudgingly entered my same PayPal card number directly to the Google app payment options, and lo and behold no problems...not a good omen when your very FIRST transaction doesn't come to fruition!
Ehhhh good, but could be better.
by Subway surfer beast on 2018/10/25 05:34
To be honest I like a lot of things about this app but for some reason when I try and stream from my phone or my iPad to my AppleTV audio always cuts out every other app works with audio but this one so that’s like a minor thing but I think they could fix it
Don’t support racism and sexism
by Wallyman.8 on 2018/04/09 00:22
Loved google till I read the entire Damore memo for myself and saw the screen shots of not hiring white or asian men. People aren’t random, over 70% of USA is white, google is only 55% white and they are desperately trying to lower that! The only way to “appear” to not be racist is to actually be systemically racist. Equality of opportunity is democracy. Equality of outcome is communism. Olympics are fair, but the podium is never politically correct/equal. You shouldn’t punish Norway for too many gold medals and “Norway privilege.” #boycottgoogle #cathynewnaninterview
Doesn’t play without app
by Icequeen313 on 2019/02/04 14:19
Google should let buyers/renters know that you can not watch movies unless you download the play store app, I now have 26 days to buy try and get this movie viewed by my daughter before it expires. It won’t even let me pull the movie up on her phone via my google account. They should not sell movies to people that don’t have access to a google phone, as I could have rented the movie from iTunes and had no problem. 😡
Keep my place
by singsongacol on 2018/01/26 06:49
I, like man people, watch my shows over and over. It would be so nice if this platform remembered what episode I watched last and where I was. Every time I start the app it opens to the first episode of the last season, regardless of what episode/season I watched last.
Needs some things
by kaydden on 2017/11/27 05:27
Okay I hate thats I am not able to purchase movies from the app, I don’t understand why I’m forced to go to a computer or use a web app to buy a movie when it would be much more convenient to do it with in the app itself. Also I loved to see a quick update to support the iPhone X, Thanks
Terrible customer service!!!
by akasuboski10 on 2018/11/15 10:11
This app allows purchase of seasons however most episodes don’t appear in a timely manner… Sometimes not for several days or weeks. Also, after downloading a show that You have purchased you are NOT able to PLAY it on your television and must stream it through the Internet instead, which can completely defeats the purpose of downloading it in the first place. SOOOO FRUSTRATING!
Add a way to archive or delete content!!
by philipsism on 2017/11/25 06:27
We seriously need a way to archive movies or shows. I watched some of the free shows and short movies, just to check them out, not knowing that they will be stuck in my library forever!! So please add an archive button to unclutter my library. Thank you.
Better than any other website
by king chacho on 2018/07/19 20:52
This is way better than any other stuff out there, all of the older movies is on here to watch full movies type it in then wahlah!
Black bars on sides of iPad Pro 11”
by scarvalho1 on 2019/02/17 18:56
Google please fix this app. I have been waiting months. Pease fix the black bars appearing on sides of iPad Pro 11” for all Google Apps. They currently look aweful and unusable. At moment I am still very loyal to Google ecosystem mostly because up until this iPad 11, movies or music from Google play worked on all my devices. Seems you want to change that. I'm switching out of your ecosystem if you don't fix this asap.
No full screen on Xs Max?
by Gilbertttooo on 2018/10/03 05:57
I want to buy some new movies, but I can’t even view the ones I already own in full screen. I get these black bars I can’t do anything about, and even worse you get small ones on the top and bottom when watching a wide screen movie. Gonna hold off for a bit but at this point I might as well just buy my movies from iTunes.
Loses Downloaded Movies with Multiple Google Accounts
by groove_guru on 2019/01/05 12:59
So before I went on vacation, I downloaded a load of movies with my personal Gmail Account. During the vacation I added a couple of G Suite accounts; all of my movies are tied to my personal account yet Google Play decided to log me out of my personal account, log me into an account I haven’t used in years, and left me without any downloaded movies. I logged back into my personal account only to find that all my movies were removed, but in Settings, it showed that I had 17GB of data used for downloaded movies stuck within the Play Movies app. So disappointed, going to Movies Anywhere or back to Apple TV, Google must have used interns to test this app!
I have no problem SmartCasting, but
by kmd0709 on 2019/02/27 13:56
When I got to SmartCast fifty shades freed unrated the preparing to download always stop at 39% and it’s been doing it for a few days now. The other movies I purchased I have no problem SmartCasting it’s just this one movie. Please fix issue
Good Apps but could use improvement
by Foxxy3400 on 2018/07/04 22:40
Good app but when watching a 2 hour movie the slide bar is too hard to use. A jump back/forward 30 seconds or 15 seconds would make it better.
Movies aren’t downloading.
by folir on 2019/07/07 04:43
Enjoy it when it works, but movies that I’ve had for years are suddenly not loading properly. It may be time for another app update. The last one seems to have been over a year ago.
Need zoom feature and fix low quality
by rf15e on 2019/07/30 13:01
Used this app on an iPhone X and Xs max and it needs the feature to pinch to zoom. All the movies are in the correct format to watch full screen on these phones but you can cause it won’t let you dull screen it. Also the quality is horrible. Does this only allow you watch in 720p? It looks terrible on the iPad.
Could Be Better
by BcnLvr27 on 2017/10/23 01:33
I wish we were able to actually pay for the movies and shows on this app instead of having to do it elsewhere.
Crashing on Samsung TVs
by johnb1493 on 2018/10/03 04:28
With all of my family’s TVs the google play app constantly crashes about every 5 minutes while watching a movie have to restart my tv and open app again to continue show been happening for about 5 months now tried multiple TVs even bought a new tv something needs to get fixed about this this is ridiculous
Eh
by uggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh on 2019/07/24 23:28
It’s a good streamer but only when connected to WiFi. It won’t stream over network and trying to use the help and support section crashes the app. Not to mention you cannot purchase anything from the app itself. You need to go to a different app, make a purchase then return to this one to stream it.
Technical problems
by donuts and culcakes on 2018/07/02 01:45
I just downloaded the app and the part that says “ cant refresh. Null “ makes me press try again many times and the search bar seems to not work. If this technical problem is not fixed I will delete the app and rate the app a one star. Please fix it. Thank you very much.

Never finishes a movie
by E$_29 on 2019/08/19 03:13
Absolutely terrible. You never finish a single movie! A time out is inevitable and constantly crashes when the movie is playing. Worse on the Samsung television!!! Seriously, get your act together Google.

ZERO SUPPORT, ZERO REFUNDS
by Keith C 504 on 2019/08/05 02:25
GARBAGE, THEY STOLE MY MONEY, and there is absolutely NO support for this kind of thing. I spent hours trying to reach some form of support, with nothing but pathetic and misleading tips. Google it the worst.
Good but...

Downloading Issues
by 3609phoenix on 2019/07/22 23:56
I downloaded this app so I can watch movies on my IPad Pro. After seeing how great this looks I started to download all my movies for offline viewing. It took me three days and a lot of internet use but I finally downloaded all of them. After a few weeks and an update to my IPad all of my movies show they are not downloaded and now I have to repeat this process. Really?!! What sense does it make for me to go through that long process again and wonder if this will happen again. I’m not sure who is at fault, Apple because they hate that I won’t purchase their movies,or Google because they hate I’m watching it on the IPad. There is no guarantee this won’t happen again, and I don’t want to burn through unnecessary data. SOMEBODY PLEASE GET IT TOGETHER!!!

The app works okay for what I need it, but is it very annoying that the new iPad Pros have been out for 8months or so, yet the screen size is still no supported. Can you please just update the app to support the new screen sizes?
iPhone not supported.

You get what you pay for
by Anonymous7532bjkkk on 2019/07/08 04:05
Yes it’s cheaper than on iTunes but not worth the headache of constant interruptions. Btw those are not due to slow internet. It’s Google Play. They should have called it Google Stop.
Movies aren’t downloading.
by folir on 2019/07/07 04:43
Enjoy it when it works, but movies that I’ve had for years are suddenly not loading properly. It may be time for another app update. The last one seems to have been over a year ago.
Good but could be great
by Myappleid45 on 2019/06/30 12:45
I love the app and fact that my whole movie collection is not only digital but if I lose a device I don't loose my movie collection. 1 request, can you add the option to create playlists? Play music has the, youtube has them, hell even netflix and hulu give you a favorites list usable in the apps. 100+ movie now it would be great to organize the collection.
Not Helpfull
by vffhjfffhn on 2019/06/29 04:36
Over the course of six years I bought almost 100 movies on Google play. I loved the service and the ability to watch the movies anywhere and keep them forever. Well, this came to an end when I had to switch email addresses. My new email address was also Gmail but even though I spoke with customer service a representative and a manager they refuse to switch the movies I’ve paid for from one Gmail account to the other. Even though I could verify they were both my accounts. Not only will I be buying movies from amazon in the future but I am now slowly phasing out any Google products that I have.
Can’t link Smart TV
by FireSmack on 2019/06/28 22:45
When I launch this app first thing Google says is it wants access to my microphone so it can hear the signal from the TV. No problem, I give it permission. It says to turn the TV off of mute so the app can hear the TV emit a sound containing the code. So I do that. Turn the volume way up. No sound ever comes from the TV. So eventually Google says just go ahead and enter the code manually and press Next. So I enter the code that’s on the TV and I press next and nothing happens. I tap the next button about 100 times, and nothing at all happens. No errors, no ackknowledgement, nothing. I tried this several times with different codes that the TV gave me, tried exiting the app on the TV and on the phone and re-launching them. No joy. This app doesn’t work. Goodbye.
This App doesn’t work

$30 in movies and cannot play on TV - iPad to converter to tv. Are you kidding me?
Google Play
by Rutschmanch on 2019/06/26 15:55
Google play is a good option for watching movies however I can’t purchase new movies in the app, just gives me the error of this device is not supported for in app purchases, kind of a big deal if it’s supposed to be a place to “rent and sell” movies to watch....
Zoom / fill screen?
by Monkeysee2003 on 2019/06/24 19:24
Can we pretty-please get a way to zoom in / fill screen? Would make my downloaded movies much more awesome. Thank you
Worst app ever

On TV
by Dezrenee on 2019/06/10 03:34
Super slow. Nothing ever loads. Always quits. Always backs out of the movie. Stupid app
Downloads only
by Ethman1 on 2019/06/08 18:11
When I go to downloads only the app freezes please fix
What's the point of this app?
by iHiJump on 2019/06/04 23:39
I open the app and I get "Recommended by Play" and a list of movies in screen- covering size. Nothing else. No genres... No options.. Just a search box.
This app is better on the android device
by TylerD333 on 2019/06/02 06:27
Can’t make any purchases in app and unable to rewind 30seconds that option is available on the android version
Family account
by lou1226lou on 2019/06/01 19:53
Very disappointed our family accounts can’t share rentals. This needs to be changed. My s/o travels for work & it’s frustrating when we both have to rent the same movie if one of us rents a movie & thinks it’s fantastic enough the other should watch it too.
Please add full screen view.
by Angel Levi on 2019/06/01 13:25
Latest update one year ago? Really? In any case please add the option for full screen view.
Good

Better on a Samsung
by nellie bertrum on 2019/05/31 05:51
I used to have a Samsung and this automatically came with my that phone which probably explains why it was much easier to use on my Samsung. Definitely works better on a Samsung than an iPhone.
WTH

Not even able to pair with my Roku TV

Works great in general but not formatted for iPad Pro yet :(
by Jess_Simpson13 on 2019/05/15 03:37
I have a large google play movies collection I love to watch on my iPad. Sadly since buying my new iPad Pro the movies don’t play in full screen, instead showing a 1 inch bar on the left and right. Oddly the YouTube app will play the same movies in full screen but Google doesn’t permit downloading movies in the YouTube app. Will go back to 5 stars when I can watch movies in full screen.
It won’t work!!

No Sound on Apple TV
by Jerry's ambivalence on 2019/05/13 01:34
I have multiple Apple TV’s and multiple iPads yet I cannot get sound to work whenever I use either iPad and Airplay it to either TV. The video is there but there is no sound. And then when the iPad screen inevitably turns off from no use it stops playing on the TV. Google...make an App for the Apple TV. This is TERRIBLE unless you want to watch videos on your iPad. TERRIBLE!
It’s good but needs updated
by Spaz04 on 2019/05/12 17:09
It’s good app but it needs upgraded to accommodate the bigger screens on the new IPhone. No adjustments are available for this currently.
A complete waste of time
by Southtampacane on 2019/05/11 15:23
I missed half an hour of an episode of a CBS show and my on demand will let you watch but no fast forward allowed. So I’d have to sit for 90 minutes waiting for the part I missed. So Google Play says I can see the episode for 1.99. Okay. Fine The website says I can only watch on an iPhone or IPad. Okay why? Don’t argue. Just download the app. I did. It seems to recognize me fine but won’t allow for “in-app” purchases? Look for help but it is nowhere to be found. Delete the app because this is a complete waste of my time. It’s just TV and it makes no sense to be this frustrated for a problem created by a bad DTV DVR and CBS incompetence
Google play moves and tv
by Music 9.3.2 on 2019/05/06 11:45
This app I find very useful cause whenever you can’t afford to buy cable to get good tv shows around here other than stupid rabbit ears then this app is all you need it’s useful I can watch whatever I want whenever I want!
Can only watch movies purchased sometimes.
by StrengthTruth on 2019/05/06 02:39
I keep having to delete and reinstall app to watch what I already paid for. The app signed me out of my google account. Grrrrr
Pathetic issues

Adding a new card . There is no menu option that we keep being referring to. Code I input on screen will not go through . A hot mess
Still not to iPad pro dimensions.
by itsdamo on 2019/05/02 02:53
Won’t buy anything more since it won’t use my iPad’s screen fully... after over half a year it’s still not to iPad Pro 11 inch dimensions.
Still holding put hope
by PePe CoCo65 on 2019/05/02 01:35
Just downloaded this app because it is the only service that offers "The Taking of Deborah Logan" streaming. I love the security of being able to use PayPal. I went thru the motions linking Google Play with my PayPal account, went to purchase a movie, and guess what...DECLINED! How embarrassing! I then begrudgingly entered my same PayPal card number directly to the Google app payment options, and lo and behold no problems...not a good omen when your very FIRST transaction doesn't come to fruition!
Google play
by loooooosssser on 2019/04/28 00:01
What happened to google play! Ever since google plus was closed ! I can’t rent any movies! I tried re setting my pass code ! I also re set my phone . It keeps asking for a pass code on my tv. Can’t change my payment method! Exhausted! I even asked for help no response! Good by google play so sad! I am done.

Useless
by Leeseng Vang on 2019/04/20 02:43
Nothing compare to the web version. Need UI experiences like the web or android app. This is useless and giving a list of tv or movies that I don’t need to see. Google needs to do it better than this.
I like to receive what I’ve paid for
by Nacho333 on 2019/04/16 19:51
When I buy a movie that’s supposed to be 4K or at least better than regular HD, I’d expect to get what I pay for. Now I get to watch a somewhat HD version of Interstellar after purchasing the 4K version. Not to happy about that. I would think it wouldn’t matter that the devices I’ve tried watching them on are new (iPhone X and 2nd generation iPad Pro)! I guess I’ll just had to go back to punching video contact on iTunes. Thought google would treat me well, but I guess I was wrong. Gave 2 stars because my movie was a bit cheaper than other platforms... I guess I see why now.
Literal piece of $%#@!
by 👎🏼🤨😤 on 2019/04/10 03:54

Download issues
by J_A88 on 2019/04/01 10:38
Within the past few days when I try to watch a movie to watch that I have downloaded to view without having to have a strong internet connection, it just shows the loading screen. It will not play the movie. I deleted the download and tried to download it again and it just does the same thing. If I delete the download I can watch the movie that way, but that is not what I want it do.
Doesn’t work

This is the WORST app I have in my phone. I have unfortunately purchased several movies through here. I have the hardest time trying to play the movies I have purchased from this app, it skips, and pulls the whole “we’re having trouble playing this movie” bit. I wish I could take all my movies from this app and put them somewhere else lol. Come one Google, get with it.
iPhone X

Poor excuse for a player
by Thatguy182 on 2019/03/05 13:35
Completely missing some of the most basic things you’d expect from a video player. Things like a way to skip ahead 10/30/whatever seconds and to rewind option, etc. Also, you can’t buy films/shows from the app (because Google and Apple hate each other obviously), no, you have to sign on to your account from a pc (or I’m just guessing an Android device would work too) and make the purchase there. I can live with that last complaint. Having no basic control over things like fast forwarding or rewinding though is just sad and pathetic really.
Bad ratio 😩
by Alrockex on 2019/03/05 05:04
I like google play but the app on Ipad would not play movies full screen 👎🏼 why get an HD movie when cant take advantage of it?
Call them - refunds
by KSK# on 2019/03/04 20:36
They refunded my last six movies. Call them!! They will pay you back. The only way they will make it better as if everyone demands a refund. Horrible app!! No updates on app in 7 MONTHS!!! Update. Still no bug fixes. Google still ignoring this app.

No visible 4k upgrades?!?!
by Hailgater108 on 2019/03/01 00:27
Google made a big announcement they would be upgrading pwoole's HD movies to 4K with alerts telling us when we got the upgrades. It appears that's impossible on iPhone. I know this is a competitor platform but giving us a half-baked app that ok not provides half the functionality is not a good way to entice Apple users to switch.

Awful

Black bars on sides of iPad Pro 11”
by scarvalho1 on 2019/02/17 18:56
Google please fix this app. I have been waiting months. Pease fix the black bars appearing on sides of iPad Pro 11” for all Google Apps. They currently look aweful and unusable. At moment I am still very loyal to Google ecosystem mostly because up until this iPad 11, movies or music from Google play worked on all my devices. Seems you want to change that. I'm switching out of your ecosystem if you don't fix this asap.

Requires too much effort to watch a movie
by WSFJackson on 2019/02/09 04:43
I have google home, google home app, and play movies app. Still not enough to watch a movie. Requires that I go to my computer to play the move from there. 2 devices and 2 apps later. 1 movie. Google, you can do better than this.
No Roku ratings!
by iPhonePhive on 2019/02/09 01:18
I'm rating this app 1 star because on my Roku you don't show movie ratings. You somehow think showing ratings is going to make me slip over a badly rated movie. Yes it's true. But having no ratings means I skip over all the movies because now I don't use the APP at all. I use Amazon because they show movie ratings. Way to shoot yourself in the foot Google!
No fast forward, no zoom.

Doesn’t play without app
by Icequeen313 on 2019/02/04 14:19
Google should let buyers/renters know that you can not watch movies unless you download the play store app, I now have 26 days to buy try and get this movie viewed by my daughter before it expires. It won’t even let me pull the movie up on her phone via my google account. They should not sell movies to people that don’t have access to a google phone, as I could have rented the movie from iTunes and had no problem. 😡

Can’t download the videos I’d purchased 😭
by Jenifer Cordova on 2019/01/19 03:17
Everything was peaches until by mistake I deleted the movie I’d purchased. I tried to download it again and the second movie I’ve purchased from this app but I can’t download it. The main reason I got this app and made purchases was because of my 2 year old who loves “Finding Dory” so I bought the movie from Google Play. It worked sure fine when I bought back in middle of December. I’d recently purchased “The Lion King” and my son loves it. I tried to download it to his iPad and by mistake I deleted his “Finding Dory” movie so I thought it wasn’t going to be a big deal if I just download it again but IT IS NOT WORKING!!!! I have done everything... and when I mean everything, I did everything. Obviously got in touch with “Support” and the guy tried to help me as much as he could but didn’t solve the problem. I am upset that I can’t download the movies to my son’s iPad, we have to sit in traffic for near two hrs and that was my only way to keep him entertained but not anymore. Please GOOGLE have an update soon and fix this issue. Sincerely, a desperate mom! 🙏🏻
Downloading Issues
by 3609phoenix on 2019/07/22 23:56
I downloaded this app so I can watch movies on my IPad Pro. After seeing how great this looks I started to download all my movies for offline viewing. It took me three days and a lot of internet use but I finally downloaded all of them. After a few weeks and an update to my IPad all of my movies show they are not downloaded and now I have to repeat this process. Really?!! What sense does it make for me to go through that long process again and wonder if this will happen again. I’m not sure who is at fault, Apple because they hate that I won’t purchase their movies,or Google because they hate I’m watching it on the IPad. There is no guarantee this won’t happen again, and I don’t want to burn through unnecessary data. SOMEBODY PLEASE GET IT TOGETHER!!!
Some Good but More Bad
by steve-of-indiana on 2018/06/14 04:11
I live in a rural location & Internet speed is quite slow the main thing I like about this app is I can download videos & play them through TVs without buffering. There are a LOT of things I do not like about the app - the biggest annoyances are 1) you cannot buy movies through the app 2) the algorithm for "recommended by play" is either badly flawed or does not take into account my purchase history 3) it would really be nice if there was an "ignore list" so that videos that do not interest me would not keep being listed 4) there is not an age level block on the “recommended” list — needed if you want to hand an iPad to a young child I have seen several people indicating they have playback problems. As I mentioned my Internet access is quite slow but I have had good luck downloading movies to my iPad & watching them on a TV that has a Chromecast plugged into HDMI. This also works well when my wife & I visit with our children while their children watch a movie from my iPad on the TV.
Disappointed Multi Platform User
by dna514 on 2019/08/18 13:33
This app has been my go to for my digital libraries on iPad for the last few years, and I travel quite a lot. The offline feature is the biggest featurefor me. A lot of people one starring this app because they cant purchase movies throughit must not understand that is Apples rules - their quest for monopoly removes your choices as a consumer. Use your web browser to purchase and the movie is in the app immediately. Finally updated so the app fills the iPad Pro display!
Works, but could use improvement.
by 'Ru on 2018/01/02 06:36
Does the job, but it's really obvious that the video player gets less love than YouTube's. No way to quickly skip back or forward by 10/15 seconds and no fine scrubbing control means good luck trying to back up just enough to hear that one line you missed 5 seconds ago. There's also no custom volume indicator, so anytime you adjust the volume, the giant grey square default iOS overlay pops up and covers half the screen.

I guess it “works” but doesn’t seem to be able to cast to Apple TV
by N0iSEA on 2018/09/03 05:15
I wanted to rent a movie using google play’s service because I got 99 cent rental offer when I bought a new TV. The problem is, how do I watch the rental? Google play movies app is not available and does not cast to Apple TV, Xbox One, Playstation 4, or any device I can think of... I am not really sure what the purpose of this app is. If its just to watch movies on your phone then it Is really useless because there are a ton of apps for that and you can even buy movies on the other apps. I cannot recommend this app until it explains why it should exist.
Immediate regret. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.
by The_Bom.com on 2018/09/17 05:05
I just wanted to rent one movie online and this is one of the few options that pops up to do that. Turns out I have to download the movie using WiFi I don’t have access to. A message keeps popping up saying I can’t watch this movie offline without downloading. I do not have access to WiFi because I have unlimited data on my phone and don’t need WiFi for anything else because I have EXCELLENT service where I am at. The fact that I just paid to watch a movie just to find out that I can not watch that movie is COMPLETE BULL SH!T. I wish I had paid attention to the other reviews. There are so many other options out there. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP.
More GOOD content than Netflix, BUT...

Hey, GooglePlay, could you maybe NOT be a slow-assed, piece of crap?! I can’t watch a single thing because you keep buffering and losing connection every 2 to 6 minutes! And I KNOW it’s not the WiFi cuz every other app I use works just fine! It’s ONLY YOU that can’t seem to work properly! I’m paying money just to watch each movie and tv show (which isn’t the easiest thing to afford in this day and age), I’d at least like to be able to watch the whole thing without your stupid loading circle thing every 3 minutes! What is the point in having your app anywhere if it’s impossible to watch any content?! 🤬🤬🤬
Error. Error. Error.
by lovethecatwalk on 2018/05/28 12:04
Every time ai rent a movie it stops playing. It does it several times saying “Error”. It gets very old starting a movie over and over and fast forwarding to where I was. Sometimes accidentally going too far and seeing ahead. When I went to report it, the “Describe your issue” feature was also broken and the app would close completely causing me again, to start over and over. Now I’m leaving feedback here. If this didn’t bug out, it would be the best app out there Roku tv. Wifi and hardline both experienced the issue. I did all troubleshooting suggestions. Still bugged out.
Beyond Satisfied!
by Utahn but not Mormon on 2017/12/07 02:19
As an iPhone user, I was distraught I couldn’t chromecast movies I rented on iTunes. I made a wild guess and looked this up—finding it on a whim. I get to rent movies, watch them on my TV, and the curious cat who obsesses over the cast that I am is satisfied by the app showing me which stars are on screen at all times. Could only be happier if this was advertised better so I didn’t waste so much money on iTunes.
It’s restarts my tv
by GSotoR on 2018/09/24 04:42
I have this app in my Samsung Smart TV. I rented a movie and for some reason the movie freezes and my tv restarts by itself send me out of the app to main apps. I disconnected my tv for a moment. I logout from the app and login again. I don’t know what else to do. I can’t watch the movie. I gonna delete my account from this app. I will go with Apple TV. I never had this bad experience before with this app.
Good, unique actor identification & info, needs ratio formatting
by D Kerr on 2018/09/01 04:52
I like the features overall, but I really want the option to zoom in a little more, and use all the pixels on my iPad (the same option Apple’s Video app has), instead of having a black strip at the top and bottom. I’d like this as a setting option, to either have a zoomed version (cutting off either the sides or top) or the original version.
Needs play list
by Hfkzwlalbfbakkdldlskskaak on 2019/01/14 09:44
I love and will always love google movies. It’s my favorite streaming app and I’m addicted but my mom (not part of technology era) doesn’t know how to use it and I don’t know if it exists but it would just be so easy if u could put together a play list if movies that goes one after the next so it’s easier for her. That would be amazing⭐️
Great way to watch your move library
by jdecelles on 2019/07/28 12:11
I buy movies from a lot of services and most of them support Movies Anywhere. I was glad to find this all app on the Appstore because I used it on all of my other devices and it's a great way to manage your movie library when you buy from different services.
Could Be Better
by MichaelSWalker8 on 2019/01/11 22:35
I find it a bit annoying I cannot rent or buy movies directly from my phone within the app. I have to open a browser on my phone to rent or purchase any content and then return to the app in order to watch it. My second issue may not be Google’s fault since they are in competition with Apple but wouldn’t it be great to have Google Movies and TV as an app for Apple TV? Please continue to improve the app and listen to reviews so you can improve your services. Thanks.
Horrible
by hay1515 on 2018/10/24 01:26
I rented a movie on my smart tv. It wouldn’t play the movie without buffering every few seconds and it wasn’t my internet connection I tested on my phone and it would play but yet it couldn’t stream it to the tv with sound. I got frustrated and moved my Apple TV to the living room and bought the movie on iTunes and it’s working perfect. Thanks for stealing 6 dollars from me google.
Don’t bother
by _minty999 on 2018/07/19 18:42
After buying a 30 min episode - I have spent almost 2 hours trying to get it to work. Following all of the ‘trouble shooting’ through pages and pages of instructions. Being so frustrated with it in the end, I decided to get a refund and was presented with a further list of instructions that is so over the top, I won’t even bother. Which is probably the whole point- so they get to keep the money because they have zero customer support and pages of instructions designed to make you give up on it.
Great app. Too bad it's limited by Apple
by Jeff Chapman on 2019/08/03 17:14
Apple requires all purchases to go through them so they can get their 30% cut. That's why you can only use this app to watch previously purchased movies and not buy them through the app. Another reason my next phone won't be an iPhone.
Offline play is now horrible
by bigdickrandall on 2017/09/13 19:43
It used to be I could watch my offline shows and movies for months with my iPad or iPhone 5s without having to connect to the internet. As I live where internet is intermittent. I have to connect to the internet after only a few episodes. And the worst part is now I have to have internet to use airplay mirror. This used to be a great app. I wish I could get my money back. I will be going to iTunes because when I buy something there isn't all the restrictions like on here.
Download issues
by J_A88 on 2019/04/01 10:38
Within the past few days when I try to watch a movie to watch that I have downloaded to view without having to have a strong internet connection, it just shows the loading screen. It will not play the movie. I deleted the download and tried to download it again and it just does the same thing. If I delete the download I can watch the movie that way, but that is not what I want it do.
The player needs updating
by Mansquatch1968 on 2018/06/08 09:58
The picture quality is fine, but having a slider as the sole functionality for rewinding and fast-forwarding a movie is beyond ridiculous for 2018. There is no excuse for not having at least a 10-second backward and forward button like even the simplest media players do in this day and age. Incredibly frustrating.
Google doesn’t want to pay Apple royalties for in-app digital purchases and it affects the end-user
by Timbo907 on 2018/03/21 18:02
Cannot purchase or rent items from the app. Very inconvenient and not user friendly. The “how do I watch this” link on an item page does not even answer the question. It merely states that purchasing is not supported on this device. What’s the easiest way to rent/buy a movie and watch it? Without a streamlined solution the end-user is going to default to the Apple iTunes Store. Hope your happy Alphabet!
Apple is Greedy and non competitive.
by JE19821012 on 2018/12/18 06:54
This app is great other than the fact Apple is so anti competitive they won’t let google sell movies on their OS. Complete BS. Other than that, app is great. I will just buy my movies through the web interface and call it good. Yeah, you sure showed me Apple.... smh.
Please add 10sec or 15sec rewind and fast forward
by Eli 21 on 2018/10/29 06:21
Hey Google, App works fine I think for the most part. But could you add 10sec or 15sec rewind and fast forward like most videos now have? It would make rewatching a missed part of a movie or show a lot easier. It would also make it easier to find a particular spot in the video playing.
Half an App
by Jon Humphreys on 2018/08/31 03:02
So I will give this app 2 stars because it allows you to watch movies and tv you have purchased from the Google Play store. However, this is really only half an app because you cannot purchase movies or tv from the app. Will rate 5 stars if this gets included. Aside from that, app works perfectly fine - just a huge oversight leaving the store part out of this app (I can’t throw my money at you either :-/).
Family account
by lou1226lou on 2019/06/01 19:53
Very disappointed our family accounts can’t share rentals. This needs to be changed. My s/o travels for work & it’s frustrating when we both have to rent the same movie if one of us rents a movie & thinks it’s fantastic enough the other should watch it too.
Google play moves and tv
by Music 9.3.2 on 2019/05/06 11:45
This app I find very useful cause whenever you can’t afford to buy cable to get good tv shows around here other than stupid rabbit ears then this app is all you need it’s useful I can watch whatever I want whenever I want!
Still holding put hope
by PePe CoCo65 on 2019/05/02 01:35
Just downloaded this app because it is the only service that offers "The Taking of Deborah Logan" streaming. I love the security of being able to use PayPal. I went thru the motions linking Google Play with my PayPal account, went to purchase a movie, and guess what...DECLINED! How embarrassing! I then begrudgingly entered my same PayPal card number directly to the Google app payment options, and lo and behold no problems...not a good omen when your very FIRST transaction doesn't come to fruition!
Ehhhh good, but could be better.
by Subway surfer beast on 2018/10/25 05:34
To be honest I like a lot of things about this app but for some reason when I try and stream from my phone or my iPad to my AppleTV audio always cuts out every other app works with audio but this one so that’s like a minor thing but I think they could fix it
Don’t support racism and sexism
by Wallyman.8 on 2018/04/09 00:22
Loved google till I read the entire Damore memo for myself and saw the screen shots of not hiring white or asian men. People aren’t random, over 70% of USA is white, google is only 55% white and they are desperately trying to lower that! The only way to “appear” to not be racist is to actually be systemically racist. Equality of opportunity is democracy. Equality of outcome is communism. Olympics are fair, but the podium is never politically correct/equal. You shouldn’t punish Norway for too many gold medals and “Norway privilege.” #boycottgoogle #cathynewnaninterview
Doesn’t play without app
by Icequeen313 on 2019/02/04 14:19
Google should let buyers/renters know that you can not watch movies unless you download the play store app, I now have 26 days to buy try and get this movie viewed by my daughter before it expires. It won’t even let me pull the movie up on her phone via my google account. They should not sell movies to people that don’t have access to a google phone, as I could have rented the movie from iTunes and had no problem. 😡
Keep my place
by singsongacol on 2018/01/26 06:49
I, like man people, watch my shows over and over. It would be so nice if this platform remembered what episode I watched last and where I was. Every time I start the app it opens to the first episode of the last season, regardless of what episode/season I watched last.
Needs some things
by kaydden on 2017/11/27 05:27
Okay I hate thats I am not able to purchase movies from the app, I don’t understand why I’m forced to go to a computer or use a web app to buy a movie when it would be much more convenient to do it with in the app itself. Also I loved to see a quick update to support the iPhone X, Thanks
Terrible customer service!!!
by akasuboski10 on 2018/11/15 10:11
This app allows purchase of seasons however most episodes don’t appear in a timely manner… Sometimes not for several days or weeks. Also, after downloading a show that You have purchased you are NOT able to PLAY it on your television and must stream it through the Internet instead, which can completely defeats the purpose of downloading it in the first place. SOOOO FRUSTRATING!
Add a way to archive or delete content!!
by philipsism on 2017/11/25 06:27
We seriously need a way to archive movies or shows. I watched some of the free shows and short movies, just to check them out, not knowing that they will be stuck in my library forever!! So please add an archive button to unclutter my library. Thank you.
Better than any other website
by king chacho on 2018/07/19 20:52
This is way better than any other stuff out there, all of the older movies is on here to watch full movies type it in then wahlah!
Black bars on sides of iPad Pro 11”
by scarvalho1 on 2019/02/17 18:56
Google please fix this app. I have been waiting months. Pease fix the black bars appearing on sides of iPad Pro 11” for all Google Apps. They currently look aweful and unusable. At moment I am still very loyal to Google ecosystem mostly because up until this iPad 11, movies or music from Google play worked on all my devices. Seems you want to change that. I'm switching out of your ecosystem if you don't fix this asap.
No full screen on Xs Max?
by Gilbertttooo on 2018/10/03 05:57
I want to buy some new movies, but I can’t even view the ones I already own in full screen. I get these black bars I can’t do anything about, and even worse you get small ones on the top and bottom when watching a wide screen movie. Gonna hold off for a bit but at this point I might as well just buy my movies from iTunes.
Loses Downloaded Movies with Multiple Google Accounts
by groove_guru on 2019/01/05 12:59
So before I went on vacation, I downloaded a load of movies with my personal Gmail Account. During the vacation I added a couple of G Suite accounts; all of my movies are tied to my personal account yet Google Play decided to log me out of my personal account, log me into an account I haven’t used in years, and left me without any downloaded movies. I logged back into my personal account only to find that all my movies were removed, but in Settings, it showed that I had 17GB of data used for downloaded movies stuck within the Play Movies app. So disappointed, going to Movies Anywhere or back to Apple TV, Google must have used interns to test this app!
I have no problem SmartCasting, but
by kmd0709 on 2019/02/27 13:56
When I got to SmartCast fifty shades freed unrated the preparing to download always stop at 39% and it’s been doing it for a few days now. The other movies I purchased I have no problem SmartCasting it’s just this one movie. Please fix issue
Good Apps but could use improvement
by Foxxy3400 on 2018/07/04 22:40
Good app but when watching a 2 hour movie the slide bar is too hard to use. A jump back/forward 30 seconds or 15 seconds would make it better.
Movies aren’t downloading.
by folir on 2019/07/07 04:43
Enjoy it when it works, but movies that I’ve had for years are suddenly not loading properly. It may be time for another app update. The last one seems to have been over a year ago.
Need zoom feature and fix low quality
by rf15e on 2019/07/30 13:01
Used this app on an iPhone X and Xs max and it needs the feature to pinch to zoom. All the movies are in the correct format to watch full screen on these phones but you can cause it won’t let you dull screen it. Also the quality is horrible. Does this only allow you watch in 720p? It looks terrible on the iPad.
Could Be Better
by BcnLvr27 on 2017/10/23 01:33
I wish we were able to actually pay for the movies and shows on this app instead of having to do it elsewhere.
Crashing on Samsung TVs
by johnb1493 on 2018/10/03 04:28
With all of my family’s TVs the google play app constantly crashes about every 5 minutes while watching a movie have to restart my tv and open app again to continue show been happening for about 5 months now tried multiple TVs even bought a new tv something needs to get fixed about this this is ridiculous
Eh
by uggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh on 2019/07/24 23:28
It’s a good streamer but only when connected to WiFi. It won’t stream over network and trying to use the help and support section crashes the app. Not to mention you cannot purchase anything from the app itself. You need to go to a different app, make a purchase then return to this one to stream it.
Technical problems
by donuts and culcakes on 2018/07/02 01:45
I just downloaded the app and the part that says “ cant refresh. Null “ makes me press try again many times and the search bar seems to not work. If this technical problem is not fixed I will delete the app and rate the app a one star. Please fix it. Thank you very much.
