Google has revealed that more of the Google Play experience is to come to Google TV. Writing in the Official Google TV blog, Ambarish Kenghe, Google TV Product Manager, has revealed that Google Play Movies, TV shows, and Music will be rolling out to Google TV over the next few weeks.
“You’ll be able to buy or rent content directly through the Google Play Store on Google TV, and purchases you’ve made on other devices will also be automatically available on Google TV. Google Play titles will also be discoverable through our TV & Movies app, which brings recommendations for shows and movies available on live TV and apps like Netflix, Amazon, and now Google Play,” he wrote.
He said that for developers, this update also enables many other Google Play features including auto-updates, subscription billing, and smart app updates.
According to Kenghe, Google Play gives you one place to find, enjoy and share favourite entertainment with millions of songs and thousands of movies and TV shows for sale, and adds to the millions of entertainment options available on Google TV through YouTube, TV & Movies, Search and the full web through Chrome.
“And you’ll be able to buy or rent content directly through the Google Play Store on Google TV, and purchases you’ve made on other devices will also be automatically available on Google TV,” he advised.
