Google Play Movies updated with new layout and Watch Now feature

by: Brad WardJune 27, 2013


Google’s been updating its apps with a slide-out navigation bar recently, and the next app to receive this handy tool is Google Play Movies. However, the slide-out navigation bar isn’t the only thing included in this new update.

Alongside the slide-out navigation bar, Google Play Movies also received a new layout, taking on the Google Now-esque card-like design. Furthermore, a new Watch Now feature was added to the app, which will predict what you’re going to watch next, and provide easy access to those titles.

Overall, the update is a pretty good one, and we can see the Watch Now feature becoming quite handy, especially if you watch TV series on Google Play Movies, such as The Walking Dead. Here’s the full change log:

  • New layout and visual design.
  • Watch Now provides quick access to what you’re likely to watch next.
  • Personal videos now available via overflow menu.

You can either hit the Google Play link below to grab the update or download it directly on your smartphone.

    Great, now it just needs content. At the moment it is even more barren than Netflix, which is pretty bad.

    First off nice update, second in my country Movies are not available, and the app says Movies is not avaiable in your country, so I Cannot see my personal videos. :(
