Movies & TV updated for Windows Insiders and Xbox Preview members - here's what's new

Microsoft updated its Movies & TV app today for Windows Insiders and members of the Xbox One Preview Program. The new build is version 10.16101.1025, and it's available for all platforms that the app is available on, including PCs, phones, HoloLens, and Xbox One.

Here's what's new in today's update:

  • When you multiselect videos in File Explorer, you can now use the Previous and Next controls to skip between them while you watch

  • If you only own an episode or two of a TV show, you now get a link to complete your season in the Store.

  • You can now use "Y" on your Xbox controller to search your collection and our catalog.

  • You can now quickly purchase the next season of your TV show straight from post-roll

  • You can now re-rent an expired movie straight from the Movies & TV app (no need to go through the Store anymore).

  • On Windows devices, you can more quickly resume or restart movies currently in progress.

Movies & TV is one of very few Microsoft apps or services left that is yet to go cross-platform. Unlike the company's music service, Groove, it's only available on Windows and Xbox, and it shows no signs of making its way to Amazon's Fire TV platform, Apple's tvOS, Roku, or anywhere else.

For Windows Insiders, you'll need to be on the Fast ring to get today's update. You can grab the new build manually by heading over here.
