Google has spent years striving to deliver a complete and smooth operating system on televisions through Android TV and its most up-to-date layer Google TV. That is why during this time we have seen big design changes of its interface and new features for the user.
The company already announced some time ago that it would add a new tab to its main menu focused on the user can find all the contents for purchase or rent. In this way, we will always have at hand those series and movies that we want to see through the service offered by Google.
Google Play Movies will cease to exist on Android TV in October
However, this initiative sounds redundant, especially considering that Google already offered its ‘Google Play Movies’ application (renamed Google TV), where users could buy or rent all the titles. For this reason, the company has wanted to get rid of it. In addition, we also know the exact day the app will disappear from the stores.
As reported by Android Headlines, some users have already begun to receive emails specifying the date on which Google Play Movies will permanently disappear from Android TV.
As can be seen in the screenshot, The company has decided to withdraw this app on October 5so those who want to buy or rent movies and series will have to do it from the new purchase tab integrated into the main menu of the operating system itself.
Don’t worry, the fact that the application disappears does not mean that you can no longer access those titles that you have recently purchased or rented. And it is that you will have access to all of them also from the tab mentioned above.
Also, if you want to access that content from your mobile devices, keep in mind that the app will continue to exist for Android and iOS devices. This app, as we mentioned before, was renamed ‘Google TV’, so you can also download it for your mobile or tablet.
The shopping tab was announced a while ago for Google TV, although not everyone has it yet. In addition, the date chosen for the removal of Google Play Movies is one day after the ‘Made by Google’ event that the firm will hold on October 4, where we will see all the hardware news that the company is preparing.
