Goodbye Android Market, Hello Google Play

We may earn a commission when you click links to retailers and purchase goods. More info.

Starting now, Google has begun the next step in the evolution of the Android Market and are calling it Google Play. The Android Market name is being retired, but no worries, Google Play looks exactly the same as the Market. Android 2.2+ devices will receive an updated Google Play Store within the next few days and things will go on as usual. 

Google is going to great length to make consumers aware of the connectivity between all of their devices through their web and cloud services. Buy a song on your laptop and its instantly available on your phone. To give Play a grand opening, Google is hosting some good deals on media this week:

To celebrate, we’ll be offering a different album, book, video rental and Android app at a special price each day for the next week in our “7 Days to Play” sale.

Google Play

Cheers everyone who sent this in!
