Google Play Movies and TV Released for iOS

The Google Play Store has long offered movies and TV shows as part of their store. While this worked perfectly well for those with an Android device, computer or Chromecast, there was no way to watch your purchased content on iOS devices. Today a new Google Play Movies and TV app for iOS is available in the App Store.

There are a few key limitations, namely support for streaming is limited to Wi-Fi connections only.

Google Music and TV is a free download in the App Store.

I see this as being advantageous to those who are switching from Android to iOS and have invested in content in the Google Play Store ecosystem. Now that content is available on iOS. This app is also yet another sign of Google’s commitment to providing apps for iOS.
