Google Play Movies & TV Becomes Google TV

Just as I wrote recently about the Google Play Music app vanishing, the Google Play Movies & TV app is also abdicating. It’s replacement is called Google TV.

I’ve never liked the app name “Google Play Movies & TV.” The whole “Google Play” thing seems awkward to me. The new name, Google TV, seems better. It’s naturally implied that TV would include both television shows and movies. Especially with The Virus ever present, it may be that the future of movies is on the little screen.

Here’s the juicy part from the Google press release:

Over the next few weeks, the Play Movies & TV app on Android mobile devices will update to the new Google TV app. You’ll see a new overall look, including a new app icon, logo, and name.

The app is tolerable, so perhaps these improvements will be welcome. Regardless, you have no choice. Expect the change happening on your Android mobile gizmo in the coming weeks.
