Google Play


Google Play is Google's renamed and rebranded Android Market online store for purchasing and downloading apps, music, books, movies and similar content for use on Android-powered smartphones, tablets, Google TV and similar devices.

Google launched Google Play in March 2012 as a single brand for all of its Android content, with Google Play replacing the Android Market, Google Play Music replacing Google Music, Google Play Books replacing Google eBookstore and Google Play Movies replacing the Android movie storefront.

Google Play also ties heavily with the company's cloud capabilities, as all of the Google Play content is capable of being shared across Android devices as well as computers and laptops.  Google Play content can be accessed from any of these devices when a user logs into his or her Google account.
