    While I was helping my daughter clean up her phone (she downloaded a rogue app) I noticed that the Motorola Spotlight Player app was renamed to Google Spotlight Player and is now available for phones other than the Moto X line. I downloaded it to my Turbo and it does play the Spotlight movies. If you are not familiar with the Spotlight movies, when it first came out on the OG Moto X (2013) it featured short little "movies" that you could watch & interact with to help you learn how the sensors and X8 computing system worked inside the phone. I believe they partnered with Disney Pixar at the beginning. You have to move, twist and turn your phone to follow the "characters" on the screen. There have been a few short movies added since the beginning and now the app is available for the Droid Turbo also. I guess this was another one of those patents that Google wanted from Moto and the app is expanding. If you want to check it out, here is the Play Store link:

    I just downloaded Help, have not watched it yet. I watched the first 3 on my wife's Moto X. This new one seems like the programming has really developed.

    I'm disappointed it's not compatible with the N5.

    But it's compatible with the N3!

    Bummer. I was surprised to see it renamed and available for other phones. Maybe Google will continue to expand the compatible list.

    It's pretty cool but I can't download "help" it just gets to 1% and then tells me there was an error and try later. I've watched the other ones

    Help is almost 1GB, it took a long time to download. If I read it correctly that is the first one to use real actors and its not all animated.

    Just checked out "Help." You could watch that many times just to make sure you didn't miss anything. Downloaded over WiFi. Took about 15m to download.

    I started it last night, looks kind of cool. I have to travel again next weekend so the four of these little "movies" will be my airport entertainment.

    I still can't down load it! I can't figure out what's wrong. The other three downloaded just fine. It gets to 1% and then fails. I have almost 3 gig free on my phone and I'm at home on my Wi-Fi. What gives?

    I'm not sure. It should download under those circumstances.
