Rent in App? 3/5
I like the service but don't understand not actually being able to rent in the app itself.
Needs some work 3/5
By Trinova Labs
I would have given it five stars if it was not for streaming and download quality being subpar. The YouTube app can stream my purchases at a much higher quality but I cannot download them thus I still need this app. I would appreciate a patch for this if possible. Then I’ll give it five stars. Thank you
This app is definitely something 5/5
I especially like when it IDs the actors currently on screen when pausing the show .
Totally love all google play apps for Ios
By pop tart girl
You guys looked awesome at first because the app is free, then you expect people to PAY ? That's just messed up, and the fact that you guys looked super cool then backstabbing them, because they have to pay like fifty five dollars a week??? I Hate the website And horrible loading btw.
Offline play is now horrible 1/5
It used to be I could watch my offline shows and movies for months with my iPad or iPhone 5s without having to connect to the internet. As I live where internet is intermittent. I have to connect to the internet after only a few episodes. And the worst part is now I have to have internet to use airplay mirror. This used to be a great app. I wish I could get my money back. I will be going to iTunes because when I buy something there isn't all the restrictions like on here.
Love it 5/5

This is an amazing app that I totally love!
Updates Have Broken Functionality 1/5
The ability to start watching on one device and then continue on another no longer works as it does NOT remember where I left off (like before the update) and no longer shows Resume option (like before the update) which means I have to Click back to the show and FF to where I was. Also no longer displays the last show watched/in progress which means more clicking. All of these problems are really annoying. I will no longer be purchasing content from Google Play until it's fixed or put back the way it was before. i will just stick with Amazon which does not have this problem.
I luv movies! The only thing that I do not like is that you have to pay for them :( (of course you do)
Is a great app ❤️ thanks for the free movies, love them all ❤️
Awesome app, just 1 BIG issue 4/5
By Koob H
We use this regularly to rent or purchase movies. It works seamlessly! The only big problem is having to purchase the films in a browser and not in the app itself. This just interrupts the user experience and is a bit of a hassle. Fix this and you earn the last star! :)
Too slow to download!!! 4/5
Has anyone else noticed lately that it's taking a ridiculously-unusually long time to download movies and shows?
Nice app but missing features 2/5
I wanted to buy a newly released movie in Ultra-HD 4K. Was looking for a way to download the movie to iOS devices to watch on the road or stream it to a Samsung 4K UHD TV.
It looked like Google was the only site that supported all these and let you buy the movie in 4K format.
After purchasing I realized a) Samsung TV's Google Play app doesn't support UHD-4K playback and b) the iOS app (which downloads the regular HD version) doesn't have any way to rewind/fast forward by N seconds (10, 15, 30, or 60) so you can skip things or go back and re-watch them. This seems like it's a pretty basic feature in video players nowadays. I'm surprised it's missing here.
Once you pause the app the tracking slider is also very small and coarse-grain. Very hard to just go back or forward a little. A good implementation of this feature is in the Amazon iPad app.
Hopefully Google will fix these issues in a subsequent release.
Best app ever 5/5
I use this app always on any device without problem better than itunes
Stuck on Playback 80% when trying to cast 2/5
All the shows that I bought gets stuck on playback 80% when trying to cast. All other casting apps on my phone works just fine. I have an iPhone7S and very disappointed in this issue. Already tried everything to troubleshoot. No luck!
I can't even sign in 1/5
I set this up on Roku with my wowway email and on mobile it only gives you the choice of gmail. Very disappointed
Great app! 5/5
Won't let me play downloads 1/5
The app won't let me play movies that I've purchased and downloaded
Consistently solid app. 5/5
By Dirk Dee Dirk
Never had a glitch. Works well with iPhone 6s as well. Please get google rewards for iPhone too!
1 star until you give me a 30 second rewind/forward 1/5
By My nickname is causing errors
I like the app ok until I try and rewind to pick up something I missed...or fast forward at the end of a movie. The app has me all over the place, except the part of the movie I'm trying to find. It's very frustrating...give me a 30 second rewind/forward button. Other apps have it, why can't google, in all its self-reported infinite creativity, come up with such a simple and needed option? Until such option is included, this app gets one star. Weak showing for such a profitable company...FYI I pay a lot of money for these movies, it would be a shame to have to buy my movies elsewhere.
By Charles Guda
It works for what it does.
It's decent... 4/5
It's an okay app. Just wish I could buy movies thru the app. But it's a pretty good app.
Good app, minor recommendation 4/5
Big fan of the the instant google account link when I open the app - I can start watching shows without any hassle. Autoplay would help improve immersion, don't want to be doing anything while running through Mad Men :)
Nice app 3/5
App is cool even though you can't buy stuff. Need to put in features from the android version like binge watching though.
It's ok 2/5
I don't really Watch it app because of vudu
To everyone complaining as to why you can't buy through here: 5/5
Because Apple would get a cut of the money due to policy and Google doesn't want to charge more. Similar on the Prime Video app.
This is the best place to keep your digital library!
Too good to be true? 1/5
By A guy with good judgement
Yes. It's only trailers and not actual movies. Would not recommend.
All movies I've watch have been great!!! 5/5
App won't load 1/5
I can't even get the app to work. After having uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, each time I open the app I still get a blank page. Please fix.
Google Play is a rip off if 1/5
I don't know if it's because I have an iPhone, but the Google Play Movie App is crap! I rented a movie on my iPhone7 and casted it to my Chromecast. Played beautifully. Tried to do it again a couple weeks later and I get this bunk error about how I've downloaded this video to the maximum number of devices. Which is funny, since I just rented it and downloaded it to only 1 device.
Not only do I will I not bother with this s**t app, I just may throw my Chromecast in the garbage if this is how things are going to be. I can only rent a movie once? B-S!
I want to give it ZERO stars!
No me deja comprar series 1/5
By No me inicia la app
No puedo comprar nada ya que me dice que mi dispositivo no es compatible ( tengo un iPhone 7)
Very good app
Fix it Better 3/5
Make it easy were if we delete a movie or tv show on the app, that we can get our money back PLEASE OKAY!!!!!!!!!!!!😤😡
Easy peasy! 5/5
Easy to use. Love being able to cast movies to a big screen!
Great app 4/5
It's a great app just that you can't watch tv shows and when you play a movie it will give you the trailer instead of the actual movie
Great app 4/5
Great app and works really well. Just wish I could download for offline viewing on both my iPad and iPhone for offline viewing for the 48 hours
Love it 4/5
By Ms Colin D
I love to be able to stream my movies through my phone or my computer to my television. I do wish I could purchase movies through my apps, but the clarity and everything with this is excellent, thank you!
How do I downloaded 4/5
By important to
The Google Play & Cracker Barrel 5/5
I'm getting a Google media player from work
To remember my 10 year anniversary at the Cracker Barrel as a employee
As bad as Apple apps 1/5
Download only option permanently locks it up. So many bugs as is common with Google, Apple, and Microsoft. Horrible app.
I love this app.
Added a buy button 2/5
For how long this app has existed there should be a buy button. There is no excuse.
Love it 5/5
This app rocks
I want to love this--but the customer service.... 1/5
I want to love this app, because I have gotten substantial gift cards for Google Play and I love my google chromecast. I would prefer to use that for my content; however, the customer service has gone from great to awful. They are routinely days to weeks late supplying content, unlike other content providers. If they would just refund for the series they don't update, I would have no problem, but getting a refund is almost impossible, even though the problem is theirs. They don't have a real person behind their emails, and they don't respond to their tweets or direct message on twitter, unlike other reputable companies. If you can get a hold of a person by deep diving for the customer service number, they will not care or in any way try to make up for the inconvenience. Pretty much if you don't like paying for content that isn't provided as agreed, you are just out of luck. This is the complete opposite of my experience with Amazon. They will be getting my business from now on.
Great google app 5/5
Works great with our tv that allows us to cast and there's promos a lot that allow us to rent new movies.
Decent but... 2/5
The app is fine and all but why can't we buy movies in the app? It seems like a feature that should be there but it's not.
