1) Download Anything
Movies and TV shows that you buy through Google Play don’t necessarily have to be downloaded. They can be streamed to your computer, smartphone or tablet instead. And if you’re connected to Wi-Fi, they can even be streamed directly from a server without downloading at all—great if you’re traveling or have slow internet connection at home. Another option is downloading to a computer and watching on a mobile device offline (or vice versa). Just make sure your app settings are set for whichever method you prefer—you can also choose automatic so your app picks what it thinks works best for each video depending on your connection speed.
2) Watch Offline
There are some great movies and shows available for free on Google Play. But did you know you can download movies and TV shows to your device and watch them offline? This is a great feature if you’re planning a road trip or going somewhere with limited internet access. It works with Android, iOS and Chrome on your laptop. Just tap download when you see something you want to watch later. Once it’s downloaded, tap play offline to start watching. When you’re done watching, just tap Done. To get started, go here . Google Home: If you have a Chromecast or Android TV (like Sony Bravia), then Google Home is already built in. Just say OK Google followed by your command like Play Stranger Things from Netflix on my living room TV. If not, no worries!
3) Rewind, Fast Forward, Pause, And More
Did you know that with a mouse or trackpad, you can rewind or fast forward by just clicking and dragging? Did you know that if you hit pause, your video will continue to download in HD (and even higher resolutions for some titles)? Did you know that if YouTube Red is available in your country, any videos will stream ad-free? Check out all 5 things about Google Play Movies & TV most people aren’t using. They could change how you watch forever!
4) Add Translate Subtitles To Any Movie
If you’re not a native English speaker, watching an American movie on your computer can be frustrating. The same is true if you have a friend who doesn’t speak your language and they want to watch a movie with you. To add subtitles to any movie or TV show in Google Play, simply search for it and then click on it when you see it pop up. Next, right-click on that video. In that menu, select Open with Translate Subtitles option and it should open in YouTube’s web player with some translated subtitles underlaying the clip. This doesn’t work quite as well for newer shows or movies—but works like a charm for everything else.
5) Best For Android Tablets
No matter how small your screen is, if you’re planning on watching some television or movies on it, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of confusion. Is there a way to rent new releases without streaming them? Can I buy videos? What file formats will work best with my device? We’ve all been there and while you might be able to answer those questions now, when you were first starting out, it can be overwhelming. To help, we’ve put together our top 5 list of things that even experienced Android users might not know they can do with Google Play Movies & TV.
