Back during a joint Intel and Google event in early May, Google promised that it was going to issue a major update to Chromebooks that allow users to store media content offline. That update is officially rolling out now, and it allows users to store TV shows and movies purchased through Google Play directly to the Chromebook hard drive for offline viewing. You no longer have to fear if your flight doesn’t have Wi-Fi.
The update also includes support for Info cards, Google said, which allows you to view more in-depth information about the content you’re watching, like who specific actors are, what music is playing in the background of a specific scene and more. Google also said you can expect improved local playback in the Chrome browser and improved Chromecast support.
The new Google Play Movies & TV Chrome app is available now, so if you own a Chromebook be sure to check it out.
