Google laid out a few important announcements today, which included both Android 4.3 and a new streaming device called Chromecast among others. As a result, the Play Music app was updated with support for Chromecast streaming last night, and Play Movies & TV received a very similar update today.

What's New

  • Send what you’re watching to your TV screen (when used with Chromecast).
  • Support for virtual surround sound on the new (2013) Nexus 7, and on the Nexus 10 running Android 4.3.
  • Watch Now sync enabled across devices.
  • Several bug fixes.

The Movies update also brings support for virtual surround sound – a feature found natively on the new Nexus 7, but also comes to the Nexus 10 by way of the Android 4.3 update. The new Movies & TV app is available now in the Play Store – you can find it by following the widget below, or checking for app updates in your device's Play Store.
