Google replaces ‘Android Market’ to ‘Google Play’

Google Inc renamed its online storefront for music, books and digital goods, its latest move to raise its profile in the market for e-content sales. The company has renamed the Android Market name for its store that sells apps, videos, music and ebooks on the Web and on mobile devices.

This rebranding will however be not limited to only the web version but will make its way onto Android based mobiles/tablets pretty soon as well.

Android market, Google Music and Google eBook store had already replaced with Google Play store. For example, Android market redirects to Google Play Store, Google eBook store redirects to Google Play Book Store and Google Music redirects to Google Play Music Store.

Since Google Music and Google ebook store are not available in India, Google Play will be redesigned and rebranded Android Market. The new app Google Play shall soon be rolling to all Android devices running on 2.2 Froyo and above through OTA (Over the air) in phased manner.
