WARNING Before reading this, please be aware that Google Music and movie rentals through Google Play are still country restricted, so if you’re not in the United States (and don’t know how to get around that) this may make you sad! Just a heads up!
Just hours ago Google launched Google Play
, a combined user interface for your apps, books, movies and music, bringing together the content and purchase platforms that used to be the separate Android Market
, Google Music
and the Google Books eBookstore
services (you’ll notice that market.android.com, music.google.com and books.google.com/ebooks all now redirect to their respective areas of Google Play). They’ve also launched the Google Play Store Android app as well as Play apps to use your books
Most of Play’s features are really just an amalgamation of pre-existing features, but it’s biggest selling point is that is makes all this content available in the cloud so you can use your content across all your devices without having to buy the same thing numerous times (like you do with iPhones and iPads!).
