Movies & TV tab, go to Google TV

It’s been two months since Google announced this, and the Movies & TV tab is now gradually disappearing from the Play Store. Mountain View redirects its users to the Google TV app if they wish to download and rent audiovisual content. Change may not satisfy everyone.

The Play Store is undergoing a makeover. Not really on the design side, which is still the same, but we feel like a few months ago Google has been thinking about its primary usefulness, but above all its place in its ecosystem. In fact, while the company is now looking to push its TV offering, especially with Google TV, the tab dedicated to movies and series from the Play Store seems too much. In any case, this is clearly the opinion of the manufacturer.

At the end of last March, Google announces the end of the ‘Movies & TV’ tab. The end has come, as some users already see. In fact, for many of them the tab has already disappeared, leaving only the Games, Apps and Books tabs, as shown in the screenshot above. At this point, Google’s plans for this new vacancy are still difficult to predict.

It’s over on the Movies & TV tab of the Google Play Store

In fact, if one can think that the Play Store will now be satisfied with these three tabs, some users have seen a fourth tab called “Play Pass”, which corresponds to the subscription that Google offers for its platform. The latter could be another name for The Offers tab that appeared last November on some Android smartphones. It includes, among other things, as its name suggests, promotions for games and applications.

In any case, it’s very clear that Google wants to highlight its Google TV app for all audio and video content, as evidenced by its recent update. Some will not fail to point out their disappointment at not making use of a single platform to download all their content. The latter can still take advantage of the tab on the web version of the Play Store, waiting for its inevitable disappearance.
