Google Play Movies & TV App Gets Minor Changes in Latest Update

The Google Play Movies & TV app has a minor update rolling out to the Play Store that is bringing a few user experience changes.  The update, version 3.28 for those keeping score at home, has several cosmetic adjustments but nothing that is overly obvious at first glance.  But there are some detail changes that are important.

First, movie trailers can now be access by the cover art for that movie.  It use to be that there was a dedicated section within the movie’s page for trailers.  Now you will see a small banner in the cover art, “Trailer” that will allow you to watch it.  This is a bit more intuitive instead of having to scroll down to find the trailer.

Second, language details are now shown on TV show listings.  Now you will be able to see the language of the show as well as the captions clearly called out in the TV show’s listing. This is something that has been in the movies section of the app for a while now so this update more-or-less brings it on par.

Look for the update to the Play Movies & TV app to hit your devices over the course of the next few days as it rolls to accounts in the Play Store.  If you are new to the app, you can download it in the Play Store and have access to thousands of movies and TV shows to rent or purchase, including 4K HDR content, and you can cast it to your Chromecast devices from the app.
