Google Play Music is finally getting with the times, adding 4K content onto its store front, but you'll only be able to access the high-res movies with the 4K-capable Chromecast Ultra, and a 4K TV.

We should also expect 4K-capable devices that run Android TV like NVIDIA's kick ass Shield, and the new Xiaomi Mi Box to work with Google Play Movies and the 4K content, too. When you go to buy or rent a movie, there is now a "Rent UHD" or "Buy UHD" option next to the SD/HD options.

The 4K content isn't in all regions right now, but we should expect that to happen in the coming weeks and months.
