Google have quietly rebranded its Android and web store as Google Play.
Now there is Play Books, Play Movies, Play Music and Play Store (Market).
So far the only Android app that has been affected is Books, which can now be found as Play Books.
As you can see the search bar now says Google Play....well isn't that pretty.
Movies, Music and Market have yet to see app updates, but I'm sure they will shortly. Will this cause confusion between new users? I'm fully expecting my dad to get in touch when/if the Market app turns to Play Store and a different icon appears on his screen.
So what else is new under Google Play? Not an awful lot, it appears that Google is trying to make their Android store and web store appear more connected. A lot more of "buy X on your phone, watch X on your computer," and "buy Y on your computer, listen to Y on your Android."
But to help people a long Google is having a fire sale on everything under it's stores. Books for under £1.99, films for £1, apps for less than 50p, music for ..... I have no idea. Music is still a US only app.
But go take advantage of todays sales. There will be sales all week.
What do you think of Play? Are you buying anything?
