Google Play Movies & TV (Google Daydream)
Intro: Watch your favourite movies and shows instantly on your Android phone or tablet, or on any HDTV using Chromecast. You can also download and watch from anywhere, even when you’re not connected. If the movie that you’re looking for isn’t yet offered, wishlist it and get a notification when it’s available to buy or rent.
Verdict: When used inside a Daydream compatible headset Google Play Movies & TV just doesn’t have the options many, many other VR movie player apps do. In fact, I would go so far to say that it has the least options of all of them I have had the please of reviewing. But what this does and all those other VR movie player apps don’t have is compatibility with an already established movie and TV library. Whatever you can see, watch, download on your normal mobile (while not in VR) you can do in this app and that is what makes it so amazing. Being able to watch a great movie or whole series in VR without breaking the immersion is impressively simple. Sure, it doesn’t have a nice virtual cinema or hardly any viewing options other than changing the size of the screen, but who cares about all that when you have the range the Play Store offers you. Yes, it would be nice if the bothered to do a little something extra with it, but I will take the fact that it works and is easy to use.
