Google Play Replaces Android Market

Google has unified its three major mobile services into a single cloud-based destination called Google Play. Starting today, its Android Market, Google Music and Google eBookstore will become part of its new venture.

Google Play allows you to store up to 20, 000 music tracks or purchase new songs from a huge catalogue of 8 million tracks. The Google Play service also features more than 450, 000 Android apps available to download as well as more than 4 million eBooks which you can purchase and read. If you are in the US, you can also rent thousands of movies.

Google has confirmed that the Android Market app on Android devices will be updated to the new 'Play' branding. Google will directly push the update to your device is most circumstances. If not, your carrier or phone manufacturer will be providing you with the update.

As of this writing, Where's My Water is now 25c. This is to promote the "7 Days to Play" campaign launched by Google Play. In addition, some selected apps have been marked down to 49c such as Osmos, World of Goo, SHADOWGUN, TuneIn Radio Pro and many others. Books haven't been left out either, with the book of the day being 25c as well.
