How to get the Google Play apps on your iPhone
If you own Google Play content and want to access it on your iPhone, you can do that by installing right apps:
- Install Google Play Movies & TV from the App Store to watch video content from Google Play on your iPhone.
- Install Google Play Music to listen to music on your iPhone.
- Install Google Play Books to read books you’ve purchased through Google Play.
When you run each of these apps for the first time, you’ll need to log into your Google account to see your content.
How to buy content for Google Play
The Google Play apps for movies, music, and books don’t allow in-app purchases, so you can’t, for example, buy a movie from the Google Play Movies & TV app.
Instead, you need to make the purchase either from an Android device or in a web browser on your desktop computer. No matter where you make a purchase, as long as it’s using your Google account, it’ll be available on any device running the Google Play app.
If you haven’t already, you need to set up a payment method for your Google account:
1. In a browser, navigate to the Google Play site. Sign into your Google account if needed.
2. In the pane on the left, click “Payment methods.”
3. If you don’t already have a payment method configured, click “Add payment method.”
4. Follow the instructions to add a credit card or other payment method to your account.
