Google recently has introduced the new store to create a more comprehensive source for movies, apps, music, and e-books, called Google Play, the store has replaced the Android Market. For Android users, the old familiar Android Market will be morphing into the Play Store. Now Google Music will become Play Music, Google Books will become Play Books, and the Video App will turn into Play Movies and so on.
To make the switch from Android Market to Google Play, the search giant will release an update for the Android Market app on devices running Android 2.2 or later over the coming days.
In a blog post, Google’s Director of Digital Content Jamie Rosenberg announced that Google’s content can now be accessed on any computer with a modern browser and not just Android devices. All the content is stored in Google’s cloud, so you can access it anywhere with your Google account. You can still push apps from your desktop browser to your smartphone.
The free storage space provides for up to 20,000 songs among its media offerings, with a library of millions to purchase including download more than 450,000 Android apps, browse Google’s selection of eBooks and rent thousands of movies. In celebration of the launch of Google Play, a “7 Days to Play” promotion will feature a different book, album, video rental, and app at a special sale price each day (albums are just $0.25). Other deals include $0.49 apps and $3.99 albums.
You can start using the service now, as Google has opened its own dedicated page.
