Google Play was introduced in March 2012 When Google rebranded its predecessor Android Market and Google Music services, an all-encompassing brand that also integrates Google Music and Google eBook Store. The Google Play service is accessible from the web, mobile app Play Store on Android and Google TV.

With Google Play you can:

In the U.S., today’s titles include the collection of top 40 hits Now That's What I Call Music 41, the popular game Where's My Water, the novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and the movie Puncture for just 25 cents each.
