Playing a little catch-up with other Internet video stores (including iTunes), Google Play is now letting users pre-order movies so you see the latest new releases the moment they are available.
Using the new feature is easy: check the list of available pre-orders, click the button to reserve it, enter your credit card details (though you will not be charged until the movie is actually delivered), and then your movie will be added to “My Movies” (where you can review the actual release date and any relevant details). On the day your movie is ready to be watched, you will receive an email to confirm your purchase and advise that it has been added to your library.
No more marking your calendar so you can return to the store at a later date –stay on top of the best Hollywood has to offer.
Movie pre-orders are only available in the US currently, but Google promises other countries will see this feature soon.
