Google brings 4K movies and VR support to Play Movies & TV app for Android devices
Google has just announced that Play Movies & TV app, one of the most popular digital seller of movies and TV shows, has been updated with a couple of new major features.

Starting today, those who use Google Play Movies & TV app will be able to watch 4K Ultra HD movies, which can be bought from the Play store. Unfortunately, they don't come for cheap at all, though you can find some that cost much lower.

For example, The Secret Life of Pets and Suicide Squad cost $29.99 each, while Star Trek Beyond is just $7.99. Everest on the other hand costs $24.99, so the prices range from $7.99 to $29.99.

Keep in mind though that these 4K movies are only available in the United States and Canada on Android devices or on the web. Aside from Android phones/tablets, they can be streamed to Chromecast Ultra, Sony Bravia Android TVs, or Xiaomi Mi Box 3.

Google also has an interesting offer, so customers who purchase a new Chromecast Ultra will also receive a free 4K movie for free from a selection of titles, including Ghostbusters and Captain Phillips.

Furthermore, Google announced that Play Movies & TV now has a catalog of more than 10,000 catalog titles that can be seen with the Daydream VR platform.

Last but not least, the Google Play Movies & TV app is now available on 2016 model Samsung Smart TVs. You will be able to use the Samsung TV remote to browse Google's selection of new release movies and TV shows.

As long as your connection is 25MB/s, it will be fast enough!
