Recently Google replaced its android market and launched a new all rounder platform for apps, books, music and movies called Google Play. All the users of Android 2.2 and its above version notices software update within few days time, although other than name rest changes are minimal. Knowing this fact Google enters into the market and by combining Apple’s iCloud which is known for its online storage space and Amazon’s plan for selling eBooks online developed a new platform ‘Google Play’.
Replacing Android Market with Google Play
The main thing behind replacing android market with Google Play is android’s strong market place growth. In last few years, android made significant progress in apps and games. But, Google Play will be replacing the android market on the new devices only. However, in coming days it will be rolled out for the older versions of android devices. The logo, layout and UI are same for now and the changes are expected in next update.
Google hopes that people currently using android devices will definitely notice about offering of Google with their new and updated apps. Additionally, Google have to offer more apps and services than what android offered to their customer. This will helps in increase in their profit, sale and good market place. It also gives chance to other companies like Warner music group to sale their products online. For advertisement Google already announced a promotional “Seven Days to Play” scheme where users can play games, download music and read eBooks in a discounted price. Google Play is Google’s first major attempt to gather all its services and products under one roof. Google expect a good review because of their strong brand name, seamless purchasing and a compelling offering. It is expected that in future, Google Play will drive more revenue than android. The intentions of Google are clear, to help their user with more and more multimedia tools. It’s a one stop shop for multimedia users.
Following are some services that Google Play is offering:
- Storage of 20,000 songs for free and can buy millions of songs.
- The world’s best collection of eBooks
- More than 450,000 apps and games
- Watching new released movies in HD quality too
We can now access Google Play but we only can access its apps section. Others including books, music and movies will take some time.
It’s time to say good bye to android market (the alternatives) and welcome to Google Play. Surely Google Play will replace android’s market with discovery, distribution and sales channel. Google Play will offer new experience to the multimedia users. After a little wait we would be able to buy eBooks, music and movies all from one single place i.e Google Play.
