No purchases. Binge watch doesn’t work.
CLC85 on 8/15/2018
I get why they don’t let you purchase through an app that Apple owns. It’s super annoying. But I get it. (They need to at least put a link that takes you to the online store.) But WHY doesn’t binge watch work for Chromecast? Why?!!! Good grief! And why can’t my Google Home find my purchases? Google Assistant couldn’t find it! It’s supposed to connect automatically.
Okay, needs skip 10 sec feature
AxDp on 8/15/2018
This app really needs a ten-second skip back/forward feature, especially while casting to Chromecast.
Don’t like
preciouspenguin on 8/15/2018
I can’t find how to watch any movie or show
$hawn21 on 8/14/2018
I like the app I just wish you all would add in a fast forward and rewind feature (10sec or 30sec).
Savage and Annoyed on 8/14/2018
I always have to turn my tv volume up to the max setting for any movies I watch on the app. The TV shows I have on here aren’t volume deficient but the movies certainly are. I am just patiently waiting for them to address it. P.L.E.A.S.E.
Don’t get this
bejsjdbjd on 8/11/2018
Bought a movie then the app didn’t allow me to watch it. Waste of money.
RandomUser1111119999 on 8/10/2018
Why isn’t there a sortable list view of your movie and tv library??? I don’t need to see a huge thumbnail of the movie so I can only see 4 movies at a time on my phone. It is so unnecessarily cumbersome as is.
To young
hater on this app on 8/3/2018
It’s says that it’s for 12+ I am 12 I put Snow White and the seven dwarf and thinking I could watch it for free because I literally but free movies in my search bar and when I get to the app it says “How to watch “ and I clicked it and it said Rent Or But 😡 IM JUST 12!!!
Literally useless
Ashes+Roses on 8/2/2018
'In-app purchases are not supported on this device' You can't watch anything! Such bs. Great app if you have google friendly devices. Apple is so greedy it's disgusting obviously, but now it's inconvenient.
No in-app purchases
Mkdies123 on 7/28/2018
Says in-app purchases are not available on my device, even with the latest update on the phone and app. Please fix this issue and review will be fixed.
The Mighty Derf on 7/28/2018
Don’t expect anything from this app. I was suppose to have movies in my library, but there are none. Just another way to give private information to Google
Won’t download my movies
MariMarTemple on 7/25/2018
So I’m trying to download a movie and the download button just keeps spinning. I’ve tried re downloading the app and it won’t work. I have enough storage space on my phone so that’s not the issue. So yeah if you want to get this it might not work just saying.
Please support Dolby in airplay
C waugh on 7/23/2018
Only stereo sound, no Dolby. This is a basic feature which is missing. Please update app to support Dolby on air play
joshuudjd on 7/23/2018
It basically useless on apple you CAN BUY ANYTHING
Better than any other website
king chacho on 7/19/2018
This is way better than any other stuff out there, all of the older movies is on here to watch full movies type it in then wahlah!
Don’t bother
_minty999 on 7/19/2018
After buying a 30 min episode - I have spent almost 2 hours trying to get it to work. Following all of the ‘trouble shooting’ through pages and pages of instructions. Being so frustrated with it in the end, I decided to get a refund and was presented with a further list of instructions that is so over the top, I won’t even bother. Which is probably the whole point- so they get to keep the money because they have zero customer support and pages of instructions designed to make you give up on it.
Do not get this app
SavageTurtle21 on 7/17/2018
Do not get this app it is a waste of storage you can watch no movies at all and it is really bad this why I rated it 1 star
Jeff Kurtz on 7/17/2018
This is so idiotic and petty. Why can’t I buy a movie from Google on an Apple device. Frustrating.
Difficult to download
Symph synth on 7/16/2018
Takes at least an hour to download a movie regardless of internet speed. This problem occurs on multiple devices both iOS and Android. I have tried dozens of different WiFi connections as well ......including the local library and coffee shops. This occurs even when other files of similar size download in a couple of minutes. It will download a few mb then it will just stop and wait ten minutes then a few more mb. Please fix this as I would love to watch the movies I purchased off line. I have tried opening and closing the app...refreshing...rebooting...reconnecting nothing is really quite annoying.
Aryaa56 on 7/15/2018
This was great we could watch all our favorite movies with friends and family love this app!!💕💝
Cannot use it the way it’s intended
heisenberg the cook on 7/15/2018
You cannot rent within the app. You can’t rent within the app. You can’t rent within the app. What kind of ridiculous sense does that even make?
The app has no movies to play on iso
psbjr123456 on 7/14/2018
Do not get this app if you have apple iPhones I checked every movie and it said not available on iso!
Needs an Update
anthro_chick on 7/13/2018
It’s been a month since the app has updated and I can tell it needs one. Trying to stream movies through ChromeCast, a Google product, it either doesn’t load or buffers every 15 seconds ( no exaggeration here) while playing. It’s time for an update, Google!
iPhone X aspect ratio?
tigercranestyle on 7/9/2018
Still no update for the iPhone X and it’s getting close to a year that it was released.
m_ruiz14 on 7/8/2018
Does not work very slow and i don’t want to pay for the movies when I have a fire stick
More GOOD content than Netflix, BUT...
WizardRascal on 7/7/2018
Hey, GooglePlay, could you maybe NOT be a slow-assed, piece of crap?! I can’t watch a single thing because you keep buffering and losing connection every 2 to 6 minutes! And I KNOW it’s not the WiFi cuz every other app I use works just fine! It’s ONLY YOU that can’t seem to work properly! I’m paying money just to watch each movie and tv show (which isn’t the easiest thing to afford in this day and age), I’d at least like to be able to watch the whole thing without your stupid loading circle thing every 3 minutes! What is the point in having your app anywhere if it’s impossible to watch any content?! 🤬🤬🤬
There are some bugs here and there
Riss...MnM on 7/6/2018
As a movie watcher i watch them a lot but when i do i buy the movie so i can watch it again but i logged into my account again and the movie that i loved was deleted from what i paid for but for some reason a week later it came back i don't know if it glitched out or u guys fixed but sometimes when i rent a movie it glitches back to play movie and restarts and then i have to re watch it but most of it is fine there r some bugs that i would love for you guys to fix so i rated it this way because of the bugs.
Good Apps but could use improvement
Foxxy3400 on 7/4/2018
Good app but when watching a 2 hour movie the slide bar is too hard to use. A jump back/forward 30 seconds or 15 seconds would make it better.
Can I start
How do l on 7/4/2018
The problem is I can't get started when it stayed get started but I couldn't . How do l start right after I log in.
Technical problems
donuts and culcakes on 7/1/2018
I just downloaded the app and the part that says “ cant refresh. Null “ makes me press try again many times and the search bar seems to not work. If this technical problem is not fixed I will delete the app and rate the app a one star. Please fix it. Thank you very much.
hehehehdhfhehe on 6/25/2018
Worst movie app in the history of movies. Can’t even add a payment method on here because there’s no way to sign in!!!!! You have nothing to add it to. Just terrible
Tiny movies and not optimized for iPhone X or iPad
Lamar310 on 6/23/2018
No option to watch movies full screen on iPhone X or iPad. All movies look tiny as a result. iTunes movies are all full screen. You are better off watching movies on the YouTube app in full screen and 1080p.
It is fake!!!’
Allybug2018 on 6/22/2018
I hate that stupid app!!
Worst app ever
matthew flash on 6/20/2018
It would not let me login I hate this app
Keeps crashing
Kadadam94 on 6/20/2018
I love google play movies, however the app keeps crashing on startup, and the only way to fix the problem is by uninstalling the app, which removes any downloaded movies I have. Love google play movies, but would like a fix to be able to keep using it!
ggggggggggggggggggggggghhjh on 6/18/2018
Why do you have to sing in
Does not work with all Google accounts
PVC-US on 6/18/2018
Only limited functionalities are working for all accounts. Legacy accounts will not be able to share Content among family members. Terrible when you can not buy a movie for your kids if you are not in the same room. Sometimes stupid limitation will cost a client. I have to buy my digital content somewhere else 🙁
want full refund on all purchases
ag1162401 on 6/17/2018
can never download anything!!
noemilu2 on 6/16/2018
At this moment I hate this application. Because today it crashed and I had to remove it from my iPad which of course it deleted all my movies now I have to download them all again.
Would play for 15 minuets at a time
Lindsaylou4815 on 6/13/2018
I rented a movie and tried to play it but I will only play for 15 minutes at a time and then I would have to turn off my TV and unplug my Wi-Fi router in order for it to continue playing at first I thought it was a Wi-Fi problem but after I fixed it it turned out to just be the app I do not recommend!
Some Good but More Bad
steve-of-indiana on 6/13/2018
I live in a rural location & Internet speed is quite slow the main thing I like about this app is I can download videos & play them through TVs without buffering. There are a LOT of things I do not like about the app - the biggest annoyances are 1) you cannot buy movies through the app 2) the algorithm for "recommended by play" is either badly flawed or does not take into account my purchase history 3) it would really be nice if there was an "ignore list" so that videos that do not interest me would not keep being listed 4) there is not an age level block on the “recommended” list — needed if you want to hand an iPad to a young child I have seen several people indicating they have playback problems. As I mentioned my Internet access is quite slow but I have had good luck downloading movies to my iPad & watching them on a TV that has a Chromecast plugged into HDMI. This also works well when my wife & I visit with our children while their children watch a movie from my iPad on the TV.
Are you kidding!?
RDavidson77 on 6/11/2018
WTH with this app? Doesn’t allow you to Enter the code that is displayed on the television… Have to resort to online web based account set up. Developers really need to go back to the basics… Horrible app
mightym2277 on 6/8/2018
Doesn’t work if you want to cast movies to another device from iOS. Tried everything, google support and everything...Google software only works on Google devices.
Love Multiplatform Support - Needs Update
DapperDavidDank on 6/8/2018
Definitely needs some basic updates, including zoom in on iPhone X, double tap to skip, etc. Otherwise, great app.
Cannot refresh .null
Rudich on 6/8/2018
That’s the only part of the app I can review, since it’s all I get, oh, punchline, when I went to check the help area the app crashed... bravo. I actually went back to the App Store to see if it’s not a Trojan.
The player needs updating
Mansquatch1968 on 6/8/2018
The picture quality is fine, but having a slider as the sole functionality for rewinding and fast-forwarding a movie is beyond ridiculous for 2018. There is no excuse for not having at least a 10-second backward and forward button like even the simplest media players do in this day and age. Incredibly frustrating.
App needs some fixing
Kavas layer on 6/5/2018
The app says it works with my iPhone. When I try watching a movie it says it don’t work on this device please talk to google play.
Defective app reports no space on iphone
Tony Maden on 6/4/2018
App reports insufficient space for a 250mb movie when 65gb storage space remaining. Obviously a bug in app. Makes one consider lack of thorough QA at Google.
No in app purchases???
ctt1wbw on 6/3/2018
This gets a one star rating because you can’t rent or buy movies using this app. Sense not this makes, dude.
Quintessential second-class Google app
Dom B L on 6/1/2018
Search, maps, Gmail/Calendar, etc. is tier one: updated frequently, periodic new features, well-maintained. Voice, Wallet ("Pay Send"???) and Movies is the second tier: poorly maintained, buggy, and feature set languishing at what's essentially a MVP. Thank you for three updates in a year, and finally releasing iPhone X support 7 months late. I've happily spent hundreds on Google Play content because of cross platform support, but to the PM of this product: get your sht together, ask for more resources, and bring this app into line with the YouTube app's functionality. Save me from the AppleTunes walled garden.
