Google Play launched on Tuesday and rolling out during the next few days on Android tablets and smartphones.
The new service does not really offer anything new, still the same syncing across devices, play movies on one device then watch on another etc. But the important thing is that Google now have a single store for entertainment, just like iTunes app.
In a move to unify their entertainment divisions, Google are rebranding the Android market and creating ‘Google Play’ which will help Google compete with rival systems from Apple iTunes and Amazon, combines the Android Market, Google Music and the Google eBookstore in a cloud based entertainment system.
Users will get space in their cloud accounts for up to 20,000 music tracks and the Android market has around 450,000 apps and games along with rental or buy options for thousands of movies.
