Google for iOS

You undoubtedly already have a good idea about how to find streaming entertainment while at home (or perhaps at work as well!). But, how do you locate movies, TV shows or songs to stream to your iPhone while you are out and about?

For example, you are killing time in between appointments in an unfamiliar town and aren’t quite sure about how to check out the latest episodes of your favorite sitcom. Or, you want to watch a documentary with a friend when you are both away from home. It could even be something as simple as looking for some songs. Perhaps you are working out in a new gym and some streaming music would help motivate you and keep you pumped up during your exercise session.

So, how do you do it? If only there was a single place you could search from to get the media you are most interested in streaming now.

Updated Google for iOS

Luckily, there is! Thanks to a new update from Google for iOS, it is now easier for you to find sources of entertainment and information. The update enables users to find various types of material from a range of streaming services and content providers, according to a report from TechCrunch.

After you type in the name of a movie or other entertainment option in the search engine, Google will let you know which streaming services in your area allow you to watch or listen immediately.

Examples of Streaming Sources Google for iOS Can Find For You

When you search for media content in Google, the search engine can return results from the following sources:

  • Amazon Video
  • Google Play
  • Hulu
  • iTunes
  • Spotify
  • YouTube

Google will show icons for each service that has the media you’re looking for. You can then click on an icon to go the service and start streaming the content in a blink of an eye.

iPhone and iPad Stands

You will get more out of your movies, television shows and songs if you don’t have to hold your iOS device while the content streams. It will be better to mount your iPhone in a table stand so it is perfectly angled for your point of view as you enjoy the streaming media that you locate through Google for iOS users.
