Android Market Relaunches As Google Play An All-In-One Storefront For Music, Books And Apps

Today Google has announced the company is streamlining their online storefronts for music, books and digital goods, incorporating the Android Market, Google Music and the Google eBookstore into what is now going to be called Google Play.

Google Play is meant to be an all inclusive repository where users can download and share their favorite music, movies, books and apps from their Android based smartphones or tablets. Google Play is going to be entirely cloud-based so all your files will be stored online, always available to you, and synce-able across all your devices.

With Google Play you can:

  • Store up to 20,000 songs for free and buy millions of new tracks
  • Download more than 450,000 Android apps and games
  • Browse Google's selection of eBooks
  • Rent thousands of your favorite movies, including new releases and HD titles

To celebrate the announcement, Google will be offering a different album, book, video rental and Android app at a special price each day for the next week in what is being dubbed a “7 Days to Play” sale. In the U.S., today’s titles include the collection of top 40 hits Now That's What I Call Music 41, the popular game Where's My Water (which oddly was Apple's 25 billionth download) , the novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and the movie Puncture for just 25 cents each. In addition, you'll find great collections of hip-hop, rock and country albums for $3.99 all week, detective novels from $2.99, some of our editorial team's favorite movies from 99 cents, and our favorite apps from 49 cents.
