Google play – A new face of android market



It seems like Google has also started bringing quick updates for its products and services following the footsteps of Facebook. Well Google Play is not only a new replacement for Android market, but it’s a one stop solution for Google Music, Google eBook store, Google Movies and Android Market. It’s like cloud storage for all your android apps, music, eBooks and movies. Now you don’t need to worry about sync and do not fear of losing them.


Google felt that Android market name was a limitation of its products because people come in android market only to buy or download apps. Google wanted to describe all their products that they have to offer and it’s not only android apps that Google is offering. They have rebranded all of their offerings under one name that Google Play like android market will be renamed as Google Play Store, Google Movies will be named as Google Play Movies (wherever available), Google Music will be called as Google Play Music and Google Books will be called as Google Play Books which will amuse Blackberry fans.
Google Play Store sounds like a place for games, so this name is not getting positive feedback from users but Who Cares! Non android users who never visited Android Market will now visit Google Play because they might be using Google Music or Google Movies. So the whole concept behind this name change is increasing traffic.
Google Play has the same infrastructure as Android Market and there is no change for developers and even for users. People will log in from same credentials. There will be an update rolled out on Android devices running Android 2.2 or higher in couple of days and Android market will be renamed.
Google Play Music (currently unavailable in India) will let you store 20,000 songs and buy new tracks online (just like iTunes). You can also rent Movies and buy books from Google Play. So it’s actually meant to engage people and add more visitors. Google sync will keep your Movies, Songs, Apps and Books available offline too but the amount of data will depend on the internal storage capacity of your device.  So try to use wireless internet while trying to download some stuff from cloud as it might exhaust your mobile data usage.
Official Google Blogs States:
In the U.S., music, movies, books and Android apps are available in Google Play. In Canada and the U.K., we’ll offer movies, books and Android apps; in Australia, books and apps; and in Japan, movies and apps. Everywhere else, Google Play will be the new home for Android apps.
