Add full screen for iPhone X
Alizayah Joe on 5/23/2018
Plz add a full screen for a iPhone X because when I am trying to watch a movie the screen is to small
Half baked update for iPhone X
Sid3112 on 5/23/2018
The update is good but the movies don't fill the entire screen of the iPhone X. That really needs to be fixed. Vudu does a much nicer job with the interface
wetter94 on 5/23/2018
To watch the movie I have already bought ! I have to download it over WiFi to watch it ! I don’t ha e WiFi ! Should’ve bought it somewhere else if I knew I had to do all that , how do I get a refund ?!
No Dolby even on the latest update
C waugh on 5/23/2018
Only stereo sound, no Dolby. This is a basic feature which is missing. Please update app to support Dolby on air play
It's finally heading in the right direction.
Jake n. on 5/23/2018
The app is finally full screen. Thank you. If you could please add the option to expand the screen on iPhone x that would be awesome. That's all I'm asking and I'll be completely satisfied.
Crap for iPhone X
JohnJay1231 on 5/23/2018
This app may be the worst video streaming app available. No skip functions and a tiny little image in the middle of my screen means this is a “pass”. I’ll stick with Vudu or Movies Anywhere.
Minimum effort
Xenovann on 5/23/2018
Simply plays and stores your purchases. Doesn’t track what you play so you can tell where you left off. Doesn’t allow you to easily skip back and forth if you miss something. Doesn’t allow you to delete things you’ve bought.
No prepaid cards allowed
Roqueez on 5/19/2018
I just tried renting a movie and boy did I have to jump thru hoops. It’s easier to pirate than literally give you money for services.
iPhone X Update
IYamKLeb on 5/19/2018
Desperately needs to fill the display, as well as optimization fixes
Does not work with all Google account
PVC-US on 5/19/2018
Only limited functionalities are working for all accounts. Legacy app account will not be able to share Content between family members. Interesting 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 🙁
Good app
Abottom241985 on 5/19/2018
Good app
iDiminish on 5/18/2018
Please update this to interface correctly with the iPhone X. Much appreciated. 👍👍
No fast forward/ backward, why?!
Mr raghimi on 5/17/2018
Why No fast forward/ backward, why?!
Google now the only one that doesn’t support IPhone X
Jason R. Memphis on 5/15/2018
Come on Google your the only one now that doesn’t support the iPhone X full screen! Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, Crackle and Amazon all do!
Still no iPhone X support
esperantisto on 5/12/2018
An app for playing videos doesn’t support full-screen video...
No way to buy 4k if movie was previously purchased.
mcew7176 on 5/6/2018
No way to upgrade to a 4k copy of a movie. If you purchased a movie a year ago and since got a fancy new tv then want to pay actual money to get a new 4k copy you are SOL. Your stuck with it, and google reps will only apologize for not being able to help. Will only buy fro ITunes and Vudu in the future.
What’s going on????
ohmygodthisisstupid on 5/2/2018
I loved this app up until today. It keeps crashing right after I paid for a rental of course. Please fix this. iPhone 6
Apple TV app needed!
Davraho on 4/23/2018
I love this app and as an apple tv user, I would love for it to have a native app on it rather than using the airplay workaround.
SteelersFan101 on 4/22/2018
Haven’t made it threw a movie with out it buffering. Don’t use it.
Doesn’t work for me
sylvie's pad on 4/22/2018
This app sporadically works. I was at the theater too many times having to pay full price for my ticket because the app was not working. Tried to chat with help line but no response so I terminated membership. Very disappointed.
Don’t buy movies before you rent and try!
Mcgradii on 4/20/2018
So I downloaded the app thinking since it’s google it would be great and have more to offer.. And well.. it does have a ton of my favorite movies, BUT I CANNOT get through one without at least 3-4 playback or network errors!!! Sometimes it’s throughout the entire movie! It’s extremely frustrating! I never have problems with watching movies on Netflix, Hulu, or YouTube so it can’t be a network error on my end. All my other tv apps play fine. I would love to use this because it’s easy to rent or buy movies, but they won’t ever play! I can barely get the “report a problem” to go through. More times then not it hasn’t worked so my “feedback want submitted.” It’s ridiculous. Let me know when you fix it.
Sher_87 on 4/20/2018
I purchased season 10 of rupauls drag race and episode 5 aired last night and it still not available for me to view it but its on vh1s mobile app. I bought the season so I can watch it add free and download it to watch it while I’m out. Its very frustrating as I have no idea when I will get to view the newest episode.
jnc3018 on 4/18/2018
So you can’t rent from the app on an iPhone.. beyond dumb.. deleting app
lolalove08 on 4/17/2018
This app said “for free” but it said you had to pay for it and connect I would give this app 0 stars if I could. DO NOT Get This APP!
Why o why does this crash????
Stunnaman513w on 4/15/2018
So after downloading a movie so I can watch it offline.... I’m not even going to go into a long story this app simply crashes upon opening re download it buuuut the same thing. Why???? What are y’all doing????
Please add a rewind button!!!
Dnow on 4/12/2018
Please, please add a rewind/skip back button for 10 or 30 seconds. I really like using google play as my central account for renting and buying movies since I can easily keep track of them as well as cast them toy chromecasts. However, the inability to jump back 30 seconds is ridiculous considering how ubiquitous it has become on every other video playing app. Also, do us all a favor and add the ability to rent/buy media through the app.
TimmyTooTall on 4/8/2018
No rent or purchase in app? Fail.
Don’t support racism and sexism
Wallyman.8 on 4/8/2018
Loved google till I read the entire Damore memo for myself and saw the screen shots of not hiring white or asian men. People aren’t random, over 70% of USA is white, google is only 55% white and they are desperately trying to lower that! The only way to “appear” to not be racist is to actually be systemically racist. Equality of opportunity is democracy. Equality of outcome is communism. Olympics are fair, but the podium is never politically correct/equal. You shouldn’t punish Norway for too many gold medals and “Norway privilege.” #boycottgoogle #cathynewnaninterview
Apple TV?
Amber852710 on 3/30/2018
Will this app ever be available for Apple TV? GooglePlay is the only place I can find King Of The Hill seasons , and I want to be able to watch them on my Apple TV. Can Apple either allow google play to work on the Apple TV, or offer king of the hill in iTunes ?
How to watch?
TurntUp4Life on 3/28/2018
I downloaded the app hearing that it would be able to show me where to find shows and movies regardless of where I stream it. Thanks but gonna get a different app.
No iPhone X support!!!
Cristobal Garcia on 3/27/2018
I love the app but there is no iPhone X support! Will change my review once updated.
No in app purchases
Adam.rules on 3/27/2018
It’s kind of lame that you cant use the app without going through a browser, renting a show then going back to the app to cast/stream. This simple fix would make it way better.
I do mountains on 3/26/2018
It’s ridiculous that this doesn’t have the same level of basic functionality as the YouTube app.
Google doesn’t want to pay Apple royalties for in-app digital purchases and it affects the end-user
Timbo907 on 3/21/2018
Cannot purchase or rent items from the app. Very inconvenient and not user friendly. The “how do I watch this” link on an item page does not even answer the question. It merely states that purchasing is not supported on this device. What’s the easiest way to rent/buy a movie and watch it? Without a streamlined solution the end-user is going to default to the Apple iTunes Store. Hope your happy Alphabet!
It’s almost April and Google still hasn’t supported the iPhone X display
osulls490 on 3/19/2018
I’d feign surprise, but it wouldn’t be believable.
iPhone X support
Chad Neuweiler on 3/19/2018
Could we get rid of these black bars?
Labory1 on 3/17/2018
I rented a movie daddy go home 2 to see it in my vizio smart tv and the movie dosnt even start it sees error
No Apple TV
Jrnet on 3/17/2018
Time to update to support 4K and Apple TV.
Still not optimized for iPhone X (March 2018)
Pau1ey on 3/12/2018
Why is it taking this long for a company as large and with the resources as Google?
iPhone X support fail
Gebeiter on 3/9/2018
Doesn’t support the display of the iPhone X, small window the size of small iphone
No iPhone X support
jenzfc on 3/9/2018
Update, update, update. Come on.
Horrible app
Mannyrn712 on 3/6/2018
Can’t rent any movies in app. Also google charges too much to rent movies. Get another app. Don’t buy a chrome cast. Amazon is much better.
Almost good
GarrettJames on 3/5/2018
Wish I could buy stuff from the app
In app purchase
santonio23 on 2/21/2018
Why wouldn’t you allow users to rent or buy movies straight from the app??? Like?
Won’t download for off-line use
Naw1985 on 2/20/2018
Videos won’t download for off-line use
There are no movies
dustinwwalls on 2/18/2018
Everything is “add to list.” Even movies that have been our for 20 years. There is no content, it’s all “coming soon.”
No option to cast
xMikeC420x on 2/18/2018
No cast button...
Videos don’t play
tori channell on 2/11/2018
Videos rarely make it beyond a couple of minutes before saying I’m not connected to the internet. I have no troubles with other video players like Netflix or YouTube. My husband has an Android and it plays no problem on the same internet connection.
Good but needs iPhone X support
Amabael on 2/8/2018
Title says it all
I use both devices
Just-Ice No Soda on 2/2/2018
So I am so glad I don’t have to buy stuff twice or forget what I have on another device. This app is the only reason I keep buying iPhones. I sure would use another device if this app didn’t exist!
