About this app

Google TV, previously Play Movies & TV, makes it easy to find and enjoy the entertainment you love in one place. With Google TV, you'll be able to:
Find what to watch next
Browse 700,000+ 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 streaming apps offer them.
See the latest releases
Buy or rent the newest movies and shows right in the Shop tab. Purchases are stored in your Library and can be downloaded to watch when you're not connected. Watch instantly on your laptop, Android phone or tablet, or on your TV with Google TV or on Play Movies & TV where available.
One 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 between all your devices, so you can even add to your Watchlist from your TV or phone and laptop through Search on any browser.
Use your phone as your 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.
Pantaya is a service only available in the US.
Separate subscriptions required for certain streaming services or access to certain content.

Overall, this is a good app. My primary complaint is with the remote. There is a scenario (which happens frequently) where I leave the remote open until the screen locks. When I unlock the screen, the unlock pattern and/or fingerprint reader is in the same place as the remote. My finger is on the screen as the phone unlocks and I inadvertently, yet unavoidably, press a button on the remote (usually the home button), interrupting whatever is playing on the TV.

quite possibly the buggiest app Google has. remote functionality randomly disappears or doesn't work. I watched a movie days ago and it still shows on my media controls. edit: I'm not entering an endless support chat again. I've learned my lesson multiple times there. maybe you can just fix the problem instead of making me do more work?

I love this app, but the latest update has absolutely ruined my Google TV Remote functionality. It's become horrendously unreliable. Edit: I have provided this feedback. Thank you. I was having the issue on my pixel fold, and it continues on my pixel 8 pro. Hopefully this is fixed soon. Thanks! I've provided feedback in the app for weeks. The issue still occurs and had made the software remote worthless.
