Google is moving forward with their Material Design updates, adding stylings to the Google Play Movies & TV app, as well as extra funcitonality which they hope will make movie night better.
To start with the information cards featuring actor or soundtrack information they’ve talked about previously are now going to show up on your phone or tablet while you cast the movie to your Chromecast or Nexus Player. Simply look for movies with the information card badge in Google Play to check the feature out.
There’s now Material Design inspired stylings in the app, including larger images and smoother transitions.
Google is also adding trailers into a re-designed ‘Watch Now’ tab, the tab will include more movie recommendations and you’ll be able to watch a movie trailer directly in the app.
Google advises that they will be rolling the update out to devices with the app installed over the next week. Time to pop the corn and settle in for a night at the movies.
