Google is giving an important app, available for iPhone and iPad, a major update. As a result, many more things are now possible. It concerns the app with which you rent movies and series through the search giant. With that application it is now possible to control your Android TV, even if you use iOS or iPadOS.
Perhaps you know the app Play Films already or still. With this app you rent movies and series via Google, which you then watch in all kinds of places where you installed the app. This app has now been expanded and renamed to Google TV. You can now find the latest version of the app in the App Store. Check to see if you can already get the update.

The updated Google TV app allows you to do a number of things. For example, the app provides recommendations based on your viewing habits. You can also add different streaming services to the app and watch the content from one place. That way you don’t have to keep switching manually.

In addition, there are a number of things you can do. For example, you watch trailers of new movie and thus quickly select movies and series from your services. You can also access purchased movies and series in your library and download them for offline viewing. These are all useful functions that will make many users happy.
But there is more
But these are not immediately the most important aspects. Because with the new Google TV app on your iPhone or iPad you can also control Google TV or Android TV devices. This way you add interesting series and movies to your watch list to keep track of new discoveries and continue later on the big screen right away.
The app also acts as a virtual remote control for the device that has Android TV or Google TV installed on it. Google TV, by the way, is a kind of software shell for Android TV, so you don’t have to deal with an entirely new operating system. That shell is only on the new Chromecast for now.
