Google Starts Removing The ‘Movies & TV’ Tab From Play Store On Android

As announced in March, Google Play users on Android are starting to see the Movies & TV store disappear from the app.

On mobile, Google no longer wants people to browse, search, buy, or rent television shows and movies from the Play Store application. Instead, Google TV is the intended replacement where you can also see your library, while it was recently updated with a “Highlights” news feed.

As part of this change, there are now changes to past purchases, family sharing, payments (including using Play credit and gift cards), refunds, Play Points, or your wishlist. There’s also no change to the recently redesigned web interface.

Meanwhile, the Play Store on Android is now focused on applications, games, ebooks, and audiobooks. Users are now down to three tabs — Games, Apps, and Books — in the bottom bar, though they might have Offers or Play Pass as a fourth. It does make navigation ever so slightly cleaner.

The first reports of Movies & TV disappearing came in last week, and there are more today, namely from Europe. Google has similarly updated its original announcement post:

Update: Movies and TV is now in the process of being removed from the Google Play app

It looks like the removal will stretch into June.
