Everyday we’re Googling – and sometimes something subtle changes, but you can’t quite put your finger on it. Helpfully, this time Google has stuck a little “NEW” tag next to its latest addition to the webpage’s navigation bar. So if you head on over to the popular search site (after you’ve read this article, of course), look up and you’ll see the new “Play” tab – which links you up to Google’s Android Market successor Google Play.
The switch-over from Android Market to Google Play might have confused a few people and had the internet giant delivering its new and quick, no fuss access point to the site, delivering the newly branded app store which allows Google and Android users to grab all the same free and paid software as the market once offered, as well as an added multimedia and entertainment flavour, delivering games, movies, music and audio books to the Android mobile OS and Google Chrome web-browser. Hence the new name – Play!
The change from Android Market to Google Play came as a bit of an unexpected surprise little over a week ago, and the Gadget Helpline was there to cover the story, which you can read again – Here.
