Update Market to play after Gingerbread upgrade

    I just got around to updating my desire with the official HTC ROM for gingerbread. Everything works fine but "google play" reverted to the old "market". Do I just wait for an OTA update to sort this out or can I force it in some way ?
    Checked for updates in the "About" menu in settings. Have also cleared the cache for market.

    Posted here as the phone is not rooted.

    Ok, thanks I'll do a search. I did originally search for the issue but didn't find anything relevant.

    I have done the self same thing, and I am pleased it has reverted!

    Is there any reason to get to like the new google play? I hated it!

    I have the same situation. I was just wondering whether there is an advantage in upgrading to Google Play from the "old" market or not. Is there?

    Not really no.
