    Google Play Store To Replace the Android Market



    Google Inc. is renaming the Android Market in a move to raise its profile in the market for electronic content sales, and to better compete with Apple and Amazon. The store will be rebranded as the Google Play Store. The rebranding is designed to make it more clear to consumers that Google offers a broad range of content, not just applications.

    Some people see the Android icon on their homescreen and they think it's just for apps
    The change is only fitting because in the past year and a half, Google has expanded their offerings in the Market to include digital books, music and videos. The ultimate goal is to bring more people to the Google Play Store. Chris Yerga, engineering director for Android Digital Content, summed it up nicely when he said "Maybe that person who is an avid book reader or music purchaser now becomes aware of 'Hey I can also get videos here, I can get games here."

    Do you like the new Google Play Store name, or is it going to take a little getting used to?

    Thanks for the tip akhenax!
