Google overhauled its TV app last year, redesigning its interface and turning it into a hub for your streaming needs. In the near future, it will also serve as Google’s official home for movies and TV shows that you can rent or buy. While you can already do that in the TV app, you can still find movies and TV shows to buy from the Google Play Store. However, in May 2022, Google will remove the Movies & TV tab of the Play Store menu at the bottom of the interface and will only continue to sell apps, games, and books.

If you haven’t checked out the new Google TV app yet, you’ll see a Store tab where you can find all the titles the tech giant offers. Everything you pay for is in the Library tab, and all purchased content stays there indefinitely – you can stream or download it. Please note that you can still use Play Credits and Play Gift Cards for in-app transactions and all of your purchases are still eligible for Family Sharing and Google Play Points. Plus, you can still view and request refunds for your TV app purchases on Google Play. The only difference is that if there’s a title you want to watch, you’ll soon have to launch the dedicated Google TV app instead of the Play Store to find it.
