Gravity on Google Play
Google likes to occasionally give gifts, and overnight, they’ve begun offering Google Play Movies & TV users a free copy of the Academy Award winning movie Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

The offer pops up in Google Play Movies & TV when you open the app, or at least it is if you have a Nexus 5 and you’re given the option to ‘Add To Library’ or ‘No Thanks’. It’s not the first time that Google has offered free video content, they gave away the Tom Hanks Movie Big in March this year, and prior to that gave away short films La Luna and Shaun the Sheep.

Gravity is still a stand out film and still one of the only films I ever recommend you see in 3D (in IMAX if possible), if you haven’t seen it then here’s your chance.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Today I was offered Gravity for free on my Nexus 7 (2013).

Me too, openend the app this morning and Gravity was there 🙂 I checked after this article was first posted and only got Shaun the Sheep. I’ve never owned a Nexus phone but have both N7 models.

Just showed up for me today on my Nexus 7 (2013).

Gravity isn’t showing up in the Play Movies & TV app on my Samsung Galaxy S3 (the Vodafone i9300T 3G variant) or my Galaxy Tab 10.1

Awesome movie. Just got it. I already have it on Blu Ray but hey I’ll take this. I also got Shaun the Sheep and Big in the past.

Tried clearing data on the Play Movies app. This did the trick and I now have Gravity added to my library… with one caveat. It won’t let me download for offline playback. It says there’s an error fetching the license.

Something funny going on here.

I got Gravity on the Nexus 5 and Shaun the Sheep on Nexus 7.

I got it, and notified a friend with an N5. He only saw it available for purchase. I suggested to clear cache and app data from Play Store and Play Movies. Hangouts msg a minute later saying he got it. So try that if you are stuck.

Clear cache (on both Google Play and Google Play Movies) didn’t do it for me. However, “Clear data” did the trick.

Neither did the trick for me 🙁

Just to double check, you’re on a Nexus 5?

I did the same thing on my Nexus 7 (2012) to get Shaun the Sheep.

No. I was testing it on Nexus 7 (2012) and the HTC Desire 601. Looks like this might be for N5 users only 🙁

yeah wondering what the list of requirements was for this. maybe they’re giving it to people who own certain devices, or might just not have rolled out yet

Thanks for the heads up! In my Play Movies I now have for free Gravity, Blank, Big, Ice Age,La Luna, Shaun the Sheep: The Big Chase. I think I got some of these movies with my N4, N7 and N10 though. This will look good Chromecasted to my TV!

Only got Shaun The Sheep here, but maybe it’s just because I haven’t ever opened the Play Movies app

Same error for me, when I look up Gravity in the Movies section of the Play Store app.

No sign of the movie in my libraries in the Play Movies app.

Rob Pennefather

It’s only for Nexus devices I think Jeni – do you have a N5 or N7?

Never bought any Nexus devices, kungfutigerr.

If you search for “Gravity”, the first autocomplete entry is a German version I think. Try the second version… but regardless, if the offer doesn’t pop up by itself, I think you need to clear the data for the Movies and TV app.
