Google started to phase out Google Movies and TV back in September of 2020 in favor of Google TV and now the former is being moved to the latter…
Google previously rebranded its Google Movies & TV service to the more direct and pithy Google TV in September of 2020. This started a complete overhaul of the entertainment experience. Now, the tech giant is officially consolidating Movies & TV into the new and improved Google TV. This, according to a recent email sent by the company to its customers.
Google Moves Google Movies and TV into Google TV
Google has announced via email that it will fold Movies & TV under Google TV, but will leave its store for apps, games, and books in place. This makes sense, given it will put the entire movie and television section into one location. It will also give viewers the ability to quickly access their libraries and watchlist. Google explains in the email:
“Starting in May 2022, the Google TV app will be your home for buying, renting, and watching movies and shows on your Android mobile device or tablet. On the Google Play app, Movies & TV will no longer be supported. Google Play will continue to be your store for apps, games, and books. On Google TV, you will find the same experience you are used to on Google Play Movies & TV with the latest new releases, rentals, deals, and great recommendations for you.”
