Google took another step to build out its media donations today, between its Google Play stores to Google TV to make its leisure offerings accessible for the first time. Over the next few weeks, purchases and rentals made in the Play store will be available within Google TV. Users will also be able to buy and rent satisfied straight through the Google Play Store on Google TV. And any purchases made on a new device a Nexus 7 tablet, say, or an Android Smartphone will repeatedly show up as purchases on Google TV.
"Google Play gives you one place to find, take pleasure in and share your favorite leisure with millions of songs and thousands of movies and TV shows for sale, and adds to the millions of leisure options accessible for you on Google TV," the company said in a blog post.
It's a logical development for the Google Play store, which was re-branded from Android advertise previous this year. My associate Greg Sandoval broke the news that Play would sell movies in April.
These features have long been obtainable on Apple TV. More newly, Amazon immediate Prime brings video purchases and rentals to the policy on which it is obtainable. Previously, Google Play on Google TV could be used only to buy applications.
The Google Play update also accessible some goodies to developers payment billing, apps that update them routinely, and so-called "smart" updates, which let users download only the parts of an app that have distorted.
