Google brings Play Movies and TV to iOS

Google has been bringing more and more of its services to iOS over the years, and a new one just launched today: users can now play back movies and TV shows theyve purchased from Google Play on their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Design-wise, its very reminiscent of the Google Play web store and is fairly similar to the Android app, but unfortunately there are some pretty serious compromises in this new app. Other Google Play apps for iOS like music and books also dont offer a store, and Amazons apps similarly dont let you buy media. If youve heavily invested in the Google Play media ecosystem, its good that theres now an option to watch your videos on iOS — you can even send them to Chromecast if you want to watch on your TV.
