Ask and ye shall receive! In the case of the HBO Go app, owners of Android tablets have been asking for the streaming app to work on their devices for quite some time now. And it looks like their prayers have been answered.

HBO has just updated its HBO Go app on Google Play Store and guess what? It no longer discriminates tablet devices. The added tablet support is listed on the change log, but unfortunately, it fails to mention any specific devices. So we’ll just assume that the new HBO Go app will work on most Android tablets, if not all – we’re seeing conflicting reports now. It either works great or force closes.

The log does mention that the app only works for tablets running up to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. So yeah, no such luck for Google Nexus 7 tablet owners. Comparatively, Kindle Fire owners got their HBO Go fix last month. However, we’re sure that an update to support Jelly Bean will be available once the N7 is fully out in the market.

Alongside the tablet support, the updated HBO Go app has also received some performance enhancements and bug fixes, making your viewing on the go more pleasurable, at least in theory.

Head to Google Play to download the latest HBO Go app, and do let us know how it works on your tablet.

    I have a Samsung galaxy and the video works but the sound does not. Netflix and Hulu + play seamlessly, so I know its an issue with HBO GO.
