Malware found inside innocent QR code apps on Android

Google Play Store Recommending 'Lite' Apps To Some Users

It will also include a new watchlist tab that makes it easier to save shows and movies to watch later. Notably absent is Netflix, though Google said more services will be added over time. It will let you narrow down searches by genres, like comedy TV shows, an award winning drama, family movies, and you can give titles you've already seen a thums up or down so it can show you items similar to your past preferences.

For those living in markets like the United States, you guys probably aren't the app's target audience so if you don't see these recommendations, that's probably one of the reasons why.

A Google Search for the term "With INC" did return a link for the app's Play Store landing page, indicating that the app was up on the Google store up until recently.

Google realizes that you don't always want to buy or rent a movie or TV show, so today it's updating the Play Movies & TV app for Android with a helpful feature that will show which apps are now streaming whatever it is you're trying to watch.

If your smartphone has suddenly started bombarding you with advertisements you could be a victim of a new malware scam that has infected hundreds of thousands of Android phones around the world.

Upon opening the updated Play Movies & TV app, you'll see a new section at the top asking "What are you in the mood for?".

"With so many different streaming apps out there, it's not only challenging to figure out what to watch, but where and how to watch it", the Google Play team complains.

When a user tries to log into one of Google's apps on an uncertified device, they will now be shown an error screen advising them to return it to the retailer if it was sold that way, or register it with Google if they're running a custom ROM. However sometimes the existence of these apps might not necessarily be the most obvious, which means that the users that will really benefit from them might not even know that they are there.

Google Play Movies & TV is an online video on demand service. Google is also adding a option to save shows and movies to watch later, by long pressing on any title to add it to a watchlist. It's unclear at this time when global Android users will get the update.
