Freaking amazing, I'm like a kid in a toy store so many courses from great professors about so many things I want to learn it all. Every man, woman and child should try this. The courses go into more depth than you will find on a typical youtube channel and will open you up to many subjects you may not have known that you were even interested in.
The app has several shortcomings and missing features. Firstly would be the ability to set the video quality. The course I'm watching now is in HD, and the video plays in HD even when I'm using my data connection. Since I'm not unlimited, this really eats up my data fast. Second, is the ability to play audio only. As other reviewers have mentioned, this feature is missing. I've experienced a few other bugs and crashes, but if these two things were added I'd be able to put up with the bugginess.
Great content, terrible app. Only downloaded this because TGC refuses to make the Plus app for Roku available in Canada. Figured at least with this, I'd get to use the service on my Chromecast, but guess what? Casting won't work. Since I don't want to watch lectures on a tiny screen, I will be uninstalling.
The courses are great. Only problem I have is that it doesn't seem to stay connected to my chromecast. Streaming over my S8 is never a proble.. fix the Chromecast issues please
Just dined up for the free trial yesterday and have been binge watching videos. I have not had any issued with streaming via the Google app. Loving it so far.
Good selection of courses. Interesing ones, as well. Would like additional courses for further study but then I would want more time in the day. As for now, plenty to keep me busy learning.
