Google Play Celebrates Second Birthday, Hosts Sales Event on Apps, Movies, Music, and More

google play logo

It seems like it has been much longer than two years ago when the Android Market ceased to exist and we were introduced to Google Play (and weren’t very happy about it). The world didn’t end though, and Google Play has gotten a lot better over the past few years, expanding to offer Google Play Music: All Access, television shows and magazines.

During the birthday celebration, Google is giving us sweet deals for the next 24 hours on select music, movies, apps, and magazines. All of which are going to be discounted for our purchasing pleasure.

The sales don’t appear to be live quite yet here in America (it is live in other parts of the world), but hit the link below start refreshing for when the deals go up. Once it’s up, we will update the post with the full list of what’s on sale.

    Google Play has came a long way, keep up your good job,big G.

  • Stone Cold

    It is live I am looking at it on my z1s

  • smartguy05

    So I guess this isn’t happening?

  • CynicalSquirrel

    Looks like this is not US at all. It’s March 6 and the link is still dead. Odd that Google would throw a birthday promotion only outside of the US. But here we are. I guess this is not as bad as Google updating Hangouts + other apps to work better on iOS, with newer features than on Android. So we have that going for us.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Or the West Coast. Hmm…weird. Maybe Google delayed the big sale for some reason.

  • Roy

    According to an insider in Google, its a fake link created to mislead the people. Please avoid it. Thanks…

  • EvanTheGamer

    So how about that Google Play Two-Year Anniversary Sale?

    The link is still dead. Maybe someone got their facts wrong.

  • D. Sharer
