Google is repackaging their entertainment products

Introducing Google Play: All your entertainment, anywhere you go
Entertainment is supposed to be fun. But in reality, getting everything to work can be the exact opposite—moving files between your computers, endless syncing across your devices, and wires…lots of wires. Today we’re eliminating all that hassle with Google Play, a digital entertainment destination where you can find, enjoy and share your favorite music, movies, books and apps on the web and on your Android phone or tablet. Google Play is entirely cloud-based so all your music, movies, books and apps are stored online, always available to you, and you never have to worry about losing them or moving them again.


Introducing Google Play: All your entertainment, anywhere you go - Official Google Mobile Blog


Good move? Thoughts?

I think initially it will cause a lot of confusion as many apps that come standard on phones are being re-branded as we speak(e.g. Google Music --> Google Play Music).

Don't like it at all. The end. Lol!

Don't fix what isn't broken. That's how I feel about it.

I think this is the first of several. I can see the various messenger apps and the OS & Chrome merging.

Revision ... sure ... I really needed this ...

I found Play Store in the App Drawer.

Makes total sense to me ... you have INTERNATIONAL recognition of the phrase Aneroid Market ... let's change it so something really childish.

Thank you Google.

I don't like the name. The icons are really nice and the whole strategy is bang-on, but Google Play just sounds silly.. even for Google. Play Store sounds like a toy store for kids... I'm sure they could have come up with a better name.. oh well, I guess we'll get used to it

I don't like the name or the new icon. When I first heard "Play", I thought of Sony and Xperia rather than Google and Android. I think it's an absolutely stupid name. Of course, that's just my opinion.
I don't know what they were thinking. A few people I talked to about this thought the same thing about the name and Sony. One even asked me if Sony bought Android.

By accident or design, Google certainly seem to be benefiting from the age old adage :-

"Any publicity is good publicity.
(also There's no such thing as bad publicity.)

Definition
said to emphasize that it is better that something receives bad publicity than no publicity at all."

(Definition of Any publicity is good publicity. from the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary & Thesaurus © Cambridge University Press)

Does it really matter what they call it?

Although I'm not particularly bothered about what Google call it, they are not helping to make the name change a smooth process, hence my response in a thread in 'Android Lounge' :-

"On my HTC Desire S the 'Market' app disappeared and 'Play Shop' app appeared at the same time in the main app list ie Google is not part of the app title. Although as already commented on, it does appear as 'Google Play Store' in 'Manage Applications' (the icon is the same in both). It would help if Google was consistent!!!"

I don't have a music tab either, just apps, books and movies. Can only assume it's on its way.

I guess Play doesn't notify of updates. Someone complained about this on another site.
I looked, and there was a new update this AM - no notice. I do have notify checked.

Problem I'm getting with the Play Store, is that there doesn't seem to be any form of localisation. When it launches paid apps and games appear to the main feature, however those are NOT available here, so the Play app crashes. The old Market worked just fine and would only show the free apps and games.

Also why the name Play? That brings to mind music, but there's no music there.

I don't mind the name or the logo. "Android" was cooler but google play is acceptable. It'll be an acquired taste like pink.

I think it's annoying that google play holds on to the history of every app that was ever downloaded and installed with no way to clear the junk or delete specific apps off the list.

I was trying to find a way to remove that and I stumbled on a vote-able suggestion on google moderator.

I'm still a new member so I can't post a link but it's on this: www(dot)google(dot)com/moderator/#9/e=1d33&g=google+play

You can't retrieve the android market, however you can change the google play icon to the old android market icon with an app.

This link goes to a post on the phandroid news section.
