Google Play Movies & TV getting info cards, material design in next update

The Google Play Movies & TV app is getting soon that will add some interactivity to your movie watching. The update will also bring Google's new material design to the app.

When you cast a movie through the app, either to the Chromecast or Nexus Player, Play Movies & TV will now show you cards with information relevant to the movie or TV show that you're watching. You'll get actor or soundtrack cards. Support for this feature will be indicated by an Info Cards badge for media on the Google Play store.

As part of the material design makeover, the app is getting a new Watch Now tab. The new tab will make it much easier to find movies and TV shows, with more recommendations appearing on screen, and you'll be able to watch a trailer directly in an app.

The update will be rolling out on the Google Play Store over the next week.
