Android Market gets replaced by Google Play - takes yours books, apps & movies to the cloud.

Until yesterday - at least for me - Android Market was the place to go to download apps.Google Music was where I would get my music were it supported in my region. And, finally, Google eBookstore served my reading needs. But that was yesterday.

Today, Google is pushing out an update for Android phone and tablet that will bring these three services under one umbrella app called Google Play. With Google Play, your music, apps, books and movies will get stored in the cloud. With Google Play you won't have to worry about availability of your stuff anymore, no matter the Google device you have.

With Google Play you can:
  • Store up to 20,000 songs for free and buy millions of new tracks
  • Download more than 450,000 Android apps and games
  • Browse the world’s largest selection of eBooks
  • Rent thousands of your favorite movies, including new releases and HD titles
Hit the break for a video introduction to Google Play.

Starting today, Android Market, Google Music and the Google eBookstore will become part of Google Play. On your Android phone or tablet, we’ll be upgrading the Android Market app to the Google Play Store app over the coming days. Your videos, books and music apps (in countries where they are available) will also be upgraded to Google Play Movies, Google Play Books and Google Play Music apps. The music, movies, books and apps you’ve purchased will continue to be available to you through Google Play—simply log in with your Google account like always.
