    Android Market is now Google Play

    So I woke up this morning and to my surprise, I found that the Android Market was gone, and replaced by Google Play. Looks essentially the same. Anyone else notice anything new/changed?

    Looks like all of google's digital services have been integrated into Google Play.

    Hello Android developer,

    Today the Android ecosystem took a big step forward with the launch of Google Play, an integrated destination for apps, books, movies, and music. As a developer of Android apps, you are a key part of this new destination.
    While there’s no change to your published products, development workflow, or distribution options, we’re writing to you as a partner to let you know more about the launch.
    Play Store

    What is Google Play?


    Google Play is an integrated destination for apps, books, movies, and music, available on any Android device and to anyone on the Web.

    With the launch, Google Play replaces and extends Android Market — users everywhere can now find all of their favorite apps and games in Google Play, with other digital content, all in one place.

    What's changing?


    For users and developers, the transition to Google Play is seamless.

    Users can sign into their existing accounts with the same credentials as before. They can find their favorite apps and games in our featured lists or browse the familiar top lists and categories. When users are ready to buy, they can do so instantly, using the same payment methods as before.


    As a developer, you continue to use the Developer console to manage distribution of your apps just as before. Your accounts, published and draft apps, product information, prices, distribution controls, in-app products, and ratings all remain the same. If you use links to your apps in your promotional materials, those links will continue to bring users to your apps' product pages on Google Play.

    What's changing is that we are investing in Google Play as a premium, integrated content destination, to bring more customers to the store and drive more downloads and purchases.


    You can start sending customers to your products in Google Play right away. We've published updated
    brand assets and badges


    that you can use on your web site and promotional materials.


    Welcome to Google Play

    With Google Play, we’re investing to give you the customer base you need to build a successful business on Android. As we grow and promote Google Play around the world, we’ll be marketing your apps and games at the same time. Our policies have not changed and our goal is still the same — to give you a great, open marketplace for distributing Android apps.

    I like the new stuff, for the most part. I HATE how you can't rent movies on a rooted device, though... ugh. At least I have netflix and Flash.

    LOL I had a few customers come in and tell me "I DELETED THE MARKET!!"

    I thought they were crazy, than another customer told me they changed the name to Play Store.

    I was in the middle of downloading an app when the pop up for Google Play showed up. I thought the app was spyware until I checked on my PC what Play was/is. My Market icon on my home screen and menu screen are still there. When I'm in the Market I don't see any references to this Google Play.

    So this is my first android and I have a question about how the play accounts work. I had to do a factory reset the other day, which of course wiped all my apps. They were all freebies so I just re-downloaded them. I'm wondering though, if I'd lost paid apps that way or deleted them to make room on my phone would I be able to download them again free or would would I have to pay for them all over again?
