Google today announced that it is rebranding the Android Market in a move that it hopes will make it easier for consumers to find not just apps, but music, books, and movies. Moving forward, the Android Market will be known as Google Play, and it will be accessible from Android smartphones/tablets, as well as desktop browsers, and Chromebooks. Content purchased through Google Play on one platform will automatically become available to all the other platforms. In addition to the new name, Google Play offers a refreshed user interface that makes it easier to sort through the different content categories within the store. The Google Play store also reflects and interacts with the content that consumers already own and store in the cloud. The result is a device-agnostic, unified user interface that looks the same whether the user is searching the store itself or if they are playing back content they already own. The new Google Play is going to be rolled out to Google customers in stages starting today.
