Google Play

(redirected from Android Market)

Google Play

Google's online store for downloading music, games, movies, e-books and Android apps. In March 2012, Google consolidated its Android Market app store, Google Music and Google eBookstore into Google Play, or "Play Store" as it appears on Android devices.

Android Market
Android Market was Google's first app store brand, launched in late 2008. For that time, it offered the unique service of downloading apps directly to the phone rather than going through a computer.

Android Market was designed to be open, allowing publishers to decide what they sell and how to rate their apps accordingly. Although not the only venue for obtaining Android apps, Google Play is the most popular for the Android platform and is expected to remain uncensored.
