He who warns is not a traitor. Google Play Movies began to disappear from Smart TV and Roku in June and, now, it is beginning to do so from our mobiles. The new app is called Google TV, and it represents the evolution of what, until now, had been Play Movies.

The old application Google Play Movies is going to be called Google TV, like the operating system that mounts the Chromecast with Google TV. Google indicates that “in the coming weeks” the application will be updated with the new name, icon and interface, since it is a completely renewed service.
Google TV will remain a multimedia center from which we can purchase movies and series, although now it will also be integrated with services such as Netflix, HBO or Disney +, to offer us recommendations on them, as it does in the Smart TV interface. When we open the app, it will ask us what services we are subscribed to, to offer us different recommendations.
