Default Google Renames Android Market to Play Store

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.androidcentral.com/google-play-unveiled-new-place-music-apps-books-and-video' target='_blank'>http://www.androidcentral.com/googl...books-and-video</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Google's content portal for Android apps, music, books and video content has been consolidated under a new name -- Google Play."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1331143890.usr309.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>If you haven't gotten the update you probably will very soon.&nbsp; Google is pushing out a new version of the Market called the Play Store.&nbsp; They are also replacing your current Books, Music, and Movies apps with Play Books, Play Music, and Play Movies.&nbsp; I think this move makes a lot of sense rather than educating people that they can use the Android Market on the web with their Windows PC to buy books, music, and video.&nbsp; It's a good time to check for deals too.&nbsp; There are apps for $0.49 and lots of other discounts as well.</p><p>Here is one thing to <a href="http://www.droid-life.com/2012/03/07/own-a-motorola-device-google-play-store-update-probably-just-broke-your-market-links/" target="_blank">watch out for if you have a Motorola device</a>.&nbsp; This update will cause your Market link at the top right of your app drawer to stop working.&nbsp; Hopefully Motorola will fix this soon on many of their devices.&nbsp; It's not a huge deal since you can still launch the new store using the Play Store icon but it's annoying.</p>
