Google Play is now offering a few new features to its Android app store.
The biggest of these is the ability to stream from a mobile device to an HD TV.
The feature is available on Android phones and tablets now, and the feature is also being rolled out to Google Play’s other apps.
The other new feature is the option to stream video from the Google Play Store, a way for Android users to easily share movies and TV shows across multiple devices.
The ability to do this is part of a larger shift towards a “one device, many devices” model for Google Play.
With Android devices getting increasingly more powerful, and Google Play increasingly relying on the more popular Chrome OS operating system, it is easy to see why the platform is starting to look less and less like a standalone app store for apps.
“The idea of the Google app store has always been that there’s a lot of flexibility,” said Andrew Gildenbrand, VP of product at Google Play in a statement.
“You can bring a lot more functionality to the app, and we’re working hard to make that work with Google Play devices as well.”
There are two big differences between streaming from a Google Play device to a HD TV, Gildens said.
One is that you can’t access the movie content directly on your phone, instead you need to download it from the store.
Another is that there are limitations on what you can do with the video you stream.
“If you’re playing in a home theater, there’s no option to watch it on a large screen, or to play it at 720p on a 4K TV,” Gildenhart said.
There’s also a bit of a difference in how the playback works.
With a streaming video app, it’s more like a movie theater.
The app’s interface is still the same, but you have a choice of what you want to watch.
For a home entertainment experience, it might be the same movie, but instead of using a remote, you’re controlling your TV through a video app.
With Google Play movies, you can choose to view the movie on a screen or a TV.
If you’re just watching on the go, you have access to a screen that you then control using a physical remote.
But if you want more control, you’ll need to watch the movie in the Google Store app on your device.
“This is a big shift in how we view the content we’re providing to our users,” Gainenhart explained.
Google Play has always taken a hands-off approach to its streaming feature, allowing it to use the store as its primary place for its apps.
In that sense, this change is an important one.
With many Android users switching to Chrome OS, and many of them being more likely to stream movies, Google Play could be looking at a real opportunity for more of its apps to work with Chromecast.
“What we’re seeing in the marketplace right now is that the Google Cast service is a great fit for most Android users,” said Alex Wojcicki, VP and general manager of Google Play apps, in a recent interview with VentureBeat.
“For many of our users, they’re watching movies on their phones or tablets, and they want to play them on a big screen.
So, for them, the Google service is the best way to go.
The same goes for most people who have a Google TV or Google Home device.
You can also have the Google Home app on the device, and watch the same content on the Google TV app.”
The Google Play store has a wide range of content, including music, TV shows, and movies, and even a few games.
The new features will probably go into effect soon, though Google will also make it easy for users to try out new features for their devices and get feedback on them.
The changes will also hopefully make the app easier for Android devices to use, but Gildes said the company will take a close look at the new functionality.
“It’s important that Google Play continue to be an easy and seamless experience for our users as we continue to evolve the Google services and products for all our devices,” he said.
“And for all the new content we have coming in the future, we will continue to invest heavily in making sure that we have the best experiences for our customers.”
