Introducing Google Play
It's my pleasure to introduce you to Google Play.
Google is (basically) saying goodbye to the "Android Market". This new conglomeration of popular Google features is now the go to source for all your entertainment.
I'm going to break this down into simple terms. Google is renaming Books, Music and Android Market into Google Play.
People who use these services already are simply getting a facelift.
Do these features sound familiar?
Buy a book on your desktop and it's instantly available on your Tablet.
Buy a song on your phone and it's instantly available on your Desktop.
The only feature I'm not sure of is the Video feature to start a movie on your phone and pick up where you left off on your desktop. But I admittedly never used Google Video before, so I have no frame of reference.
Get Google's description and a trailer for the product after the jump.
