In a recent blog post Google has officially confirmed that it has moved it’s existing Android App market to Google Play. If you can remember pretty well, you should know by now that when Google launched it’s Android market site it was only an app store. However, later on they added Music, Movies etc. For the first time Google is basically taking steps to integrate all of it’s mobile device based services. Starting from Android App to Google Music, Google eBookstore, Movies etc.
“Today we’re eliminating all that hassle with Google Play, a digital entertainment destination where you can find, enjoy and share your favorite music, movies, books and apps on the web and on your Android phone or tablet. Google Play is entirely cloud-based so all your music, movies, books and apps are stored online, always available to you, and you never have to worry about losing them or moving them again.” says Jamie Rosenberg, Director of Digital Content.
Now the question is, what exactly you can do with the brand new Google play account? Well, you can store up to 20k songs and buy millions more. Of course you can download your favorite Android apps, games just like before along with eBooks.
Google assures it’s Android phone or tablet users by saying that very soon they will be upgrading the Android Market app to the Google Play Store app. Don’t worry your previously purchased contents will remain available through this new app.
