This app provide easy to use interface for searching. Specially for smart TV users like Android TV. They majority of Android TV users have to use their remote make a search. So this app has more interactive search when compared to other apps like Disney plus. You can search by:
In search section of this app you can see “Explore” section under search area. If you does not know what to search check those explore categories to find the content you are interested.
If you click Star Wars section under explore section you can see all star war movies.
You can create your favorite list of movies that you want to watch later or re-watch. You can access your watchlist from menu. You can add any TV series or Movie to watchlist. So it will be much more easier to access. If not you have to search to find the movie or TV Series you want to watch.
You can simply add any movie / TV series to watchlist. For that open any movie or TV series you like. Next to the play button you can see plus button like below. Click on it.
Now you can see that movie or TV series listed under watchlist.
In originals section it shows all Disney+ originals. It is like Amazon originals, Netflix originals, Apple TV originals. For now Disney has few originals listed. Sure that list grow with time. Many people show interest in Star Wars Mandalorian.
In settings there is no much in it. So no confusing settings like other apps. No much to do with settings. No customization or any fancy stuff. It just show Account information, Help, legal information and option to logout.
For help you have to go to https://help.disneyplus.com. It does not show help documentation inside the app.
Subtitles on Disney Plus
You can easily add subtitles. Be default many movies and TV series found in Disney plus has subtitles of different languages. Enabling subtitles is every simple. Just open the content you want and play it. On the top right corner you can see button like below. Click on it.
Now you ca see list of languages appear. Select the language you want. That’s all.
Ability to change audio is one of the best cool feature I saw on Disney Plus. Actually you can change the language they speak. For example you want to change the language speak in Star wars TV series to Deutsch you can do that with Disney plus. Not all movies and TV series support all languages. But it provide main and available languages at one place.
In order to change audio click on the top right corner button appear when playing the movie just like we do with subtitles. Now subtitles appear. Next to subtitles you can see “AUDIO” button. Click on it. Now you can see available list of languages that Movies or TV Series available.
I just covered whole Disney plus app as much as possible. If you want to know anything apart from the things mention above feel free to leave a comment.
