NO STARS 1/5
This is the WORST app I have in my phone. I have unfortunately purchased several movies through here. I have the hardest time trying to play the movies I have purchased from this app, it skips, and pulls the whole “we’re having trouble playing this movie” bit. I wish I could take all my movies from this app and put them somewhere else lol. Come one Google, get with it.
iPhone X 2/5
Please update for iPhone X full screen support thanks than I’ll rate this app 3 stars also update to make it easier to find free movies and rent and buy movies with in the app thanks again kindly
6 months and no fix 1/5
Going On 6 months since the iPad Pro 2018 launched, and for some reason google can’t update google play to not have big black bars n the sides of the screen. Congrats, you made me start buying movies in apple’s store now, way to screw that up, guys.
Garbage app 1/5
I WANT MY MONEY BACK
Does not work 1/5
Cannot download or watch two movies i purchased. It took my money with ease though.
Google play is awesome I like how you can use the gift card to buy movies!!!!!!!!!i like how it has cartoons on there!!!
Poor excuse for a player 2/5
Completely missing some of the most basic things you’d expect from a video player. Things like a way to skip ahead 10/30/whatever seconds and to rewind option, etc.
Also, you can’t buy films/shows from the app (because Google and Apple hate each other obviously), no, you have to sign on to your account from a pc (or I’m just guessing an Android device would work too) and make the purchase there.
I can live with that last complaint. Having no basic control over things like fast forwarding or rewinding though is just sad and pathetic really.
Bad ratio 😩 2/5
I like google play but the app on Ipad would not play movies full screen 👎🏼 why get an HD movie when cant take advantage of it?
Call them - refunds 1/5
They refunded my last six movies. Call them!! They will pay you back. The only way they will make it better as if everyone demands a refund. Horrible app!! No updates on app in 7 MONTHS!!!
Update. Still no bug fixes. Google still ignoring this app.
Stole my money 1/5
By Britt male
Dolby support missing 3/5
By C waugh
When can we expect surround sound on airplay???? Long awaited
Terrible support 1/5
Wasted a hour trying to fix an issue with a movie that didn’t download properly. Terrible customer service, no help at all.
I hate this thing intensely 1/5
By accesory nivicular
I spent 4-5 hour on a wild goose chase trying to purchase ONE MOVIE.
No visible 4k upgrades?!?! 2/5
Google made a big announcement they would be upgrading pwoole's HD movies to 4K with alerts telling us when we got the upgrades. It appears that's impossible on iPhone. I know this is a competitor platform but giving us a half-baked app that ok not provides half the functionality is not a good way to entice Apple users to switch.
No stars 1/5
By Worked for a while
The program creates too many hoops to benefit from paying a fee of over fifteen dollars: forced to slave labor chores while benefiting from cash paid for: for what? None sense!
I have no problem SmartCasting, but 4/5
When I got to SmartCast fifty shades freed unrated the preparing to download always stop at 39% and it’s been doing it for a few days now. The other movies I purchased I have no problem SmartCasting it’s just this one movie. Please fix issue
You can’t download movies or shows 1/5
By John Turcotte
I did all the instructions it doesn’t work it says there’s a error when there’s not.
Lousy actions board 1/5
Don’t bother. Google is great at a lot of things. They don’t have it together here. Best to use another service entirely
Please include a zoom option in the new update for people that have an iPhone X and above. It’s frustrating not having the full screen
How to watch 1/5
How do I watch
Too small IPad Pro (2018), please update. 3/5
Launching the app on the iPad Pro, the app is too small, it only occupies about 3/4 of the screen real estate. I would really love for this to be changed, thanks.
This app is garbage. Slow streaming, about 150 passwords and pins required to buy anything, and Closed captions didn’t work on my $20 movie purchase. I hate this app
Black bars on sides of iPad Pro 11” 1/5
Google please fix this app. I have been waiting months. Pease fix the black bars appearing on sides of iPad Pro 11” for all Google Apps. They currently look aweful and unusable.
At moment I am still very loyal to Google ecosystem mostly because up until this iPad 11, movies or music from Google play worked on all my devices. Seems you want to change that.
I'm switching out of your ecosystem if you don't fix this asap.
Terrible device support 1/5
Doesn’t work with 2018 iPad Pro.
Can’t find chromecast 1/5
Can never find chromecast on my network even though YouTube can.
Google hasn’t released an update in 8 months for this app...
Update please 3/5
By Mavrick Zero
Update for iPad 11 inch please.
Please stretch movies to the edges! 3/5
I don’t want to watch a movie that just takes up a small rectangle in the middle of the screen! Please update the iPad app to stretch to the edges
Apple play - No Sound - for TV Show 1/5
Bought GOT but when tried playing to Apple TV through AirPlay there was no sound. YouTube working fine just not google play
The worst in the world 1/5
If there was an option for zero star I choose that one, I bought a movie $12 and it’s been more than 4 hours I’m still watching it!!!! The video stop and reloaded more than 10 times!
Please don’t waste your time and your money for this !!
Requires too much effort to watch a movie 1/5
I have google home, google home app, and play movies app. Still not enough to watch a movie. Requires that I go to my computer to play the move from there. 2 devices and 2 apps later. 1 movie. Google, you can do better than this.
No Roku ratings! 1/5
I'm rating this app 1 star because on my Roku you don't show movie ratings. You somehow think showing ratings is going to make me slip over a badly rated movie. Yes it's true. But having no ratings means I skip over all the movies because now I don't use the APP at all. I use Amazon because they show movie ratings. Way to shoot yourself in the foot Google!
No fast forward, no zoom. 2/5
Worst player interface among all streaming apps
Doesn’t play without app 1/5
Google should let buyers/renters know that you can not watch movies unless you download the play store app, I now have 26 days to buy try and get this movie viewed by my daughter before it expires. It won’t even let me pull the movie up on her phone via my google account. They should not sell movies to people that don’t have access to a google phone, as I could have rented the movie from iTunes and had no problem. 😡
By Download myhappiness
Does not actually ever connect to Roku
What’s the point? 1/5
Can’t rent a movie through the app so it’s utterly useless.
Asinine setup requirements 1/5
App makes you go through 4 different websites for 4 different reasons just to purchase a movie/show. Don’t try setting this thing up with a smart tv or Roku stick, you’ll waste your day.
Doesn’t download movies 1/5
I have over 30 movies in my account and can’t download any of them for offline viewing. Which I used to be able to do no problem. Plenty of space still on my phone storage. This app hasn’t had an update in 8 months it said. 😭
Google play should get a lot of improvements 1/5
By benji reviews
No options for subtitles or languages, and I struggle a lot to purchase a movie and making and account took me a while to be able to play a movie and is also expensive ...Netflix is better than google play 100000 times better and efficient than this app ,
By Panhead4ever 7465
It’s obvious Google doesn’t invest many resources in the iOS version. The app is horrible! Numerous purchased movies wont download. It just sits there with a spinning circle. Plus, if you have a large number of movies in your library and set to show downloaded only, it will literally hang the app for 2-3 minutes each time you navigate. Stay far away unless you use Android
Can’t download movies 1/5
I can’t download anything that I have purchased!
App is Junk 1/5
No idea why somebody would use it. Extremely slow response times. Often you click and nothing happens. No errors just nothing. Waste of time.
Needs fixing 1/5
Crashes when I try to go to the help thing to report an issue but my issue is some movies I can download for off line viewing and then some I can’t I’m shocked that google doesn’t have this down to a science I’m a bit disappointed please fix this ASAP
iPhone X Display Support 3/5
Please add the feature that expands the display to view in full screen. Opening up the YouTube app and viewing the purchased content is a workaround but, watching a Masterpiece such as Interstellar shouldn’t be just viewed at 720p when the display itself can handle 1080p.
Slow Speed, Inefficient 1/5
It took me 20 minutes to rent and download a movie I wanted to watch online. I was on WiFi. Inexcusable.
I wanted one hour with tech support to only be told someone will call me later I have a brand new XS MAX AND I CANT WATCH MY PLAY MOVIES ON THIS DEVICE and it keeps crashing to make matters worse I can’t watch on my Laptop in good resolution looks like dvd and only half screen if you go full screen plays only audio please fix google
Refuses to download a movie from my library. Just gives me a spinning icon but won’t begin the download. Help crashes when trying to describe the issue. Stay away
There has been a bug for years where if you have a lot of content downloaded and toggle “downloaded-only” to on it will take 10+ minutes to load. At first I had this on an iphone 6s, and now again with an iphone xr. google obviously doesn’t care about ios. i have a $3k+ library in google play and will be switching to itunes
Terrible. I cannot connect my tv with the code provided. I type the code into this application as it states to do and it does absolutely nothing.
Can’t download the videos I’d purchased 😭 1/5
By Jenifer Cordova
Everything was peaches until by mistake I deleted the movie I’d purchased. I tried to download it again and the second movie I’ve purchased from this app but I can’t download it. The main reason I got this app and made purchases was because of my 2 year old who loves “Finding Dory” so I bought the movie from Google Play. It worked sure fine when I bought back in middle of December. I’d recently purchased “The Lion King” and my son loves it. I tried to download it to his iPad and by mistake I deleted his “Finding Dory” movie so I thought it wasn’t going to be a big deal if I just download it again but IT IS NOT WORKING!!!! I have done everything... and when I mean everything, I did everything. Obviously got in touch with “Support” and the guy tried to help me as much as he could but didn’t solve the problem. I am upset that I can’t download the movies to my son’s iPad, we have to sit in traffic for near two hrs and that was my only way to keep him entertained but not anymore. Please GOOGLE have an update soon and fix this issue. Sincerely, a desperate mom! 🙏🏻
