We just got wind of some interesting news thanks to Jack Holt. Google just announced it is changing the Android Market to Google Play. Will include a host of improvements in addition to unifying a lot of its services into one major app. Talk Android has been following it closely as you folks know already. Me personally: Not sure if I should be excited or worried... but then again, what do I know? You folks excited?

Downloaded the updates last night at work..
Nothing to spectacular. Everything is the same other than some pretty sweet deals they have going on due to the change.

I'm not too excited about the re-branding. I think this was a poor choice on their part.
The only thing good I see about this so far is the $0.45 apps they put on sale.

I'm not excited at all. Android Market has a firm brand now, Google Play sounds like a place for games, worse, the word Play is being built up by RIM for its Playbook. So now RIM has Playbook, and Google has Google Play?

[ It sort of seems interesting, depending on how far RIM takes their Android emulation... Google Play on the RIM Playbook might make alot of sense ]

Redemption: It's funny you say that. When I first installed and opened Google Play I noticed it still looks like the Market, but the first thing I thought of was Google pawned off the Market to some other company to take control/care of.

Google play? Why sounds just like for games only? In my view it is a dull name…... Market sounded much better and had a better description. Not a good step in my view.

I wasn't impressed with the new name. The 'Android Market' branding is well known now and is kind of a cool name.
But everything that Google has done before has always been a massive success so I am sure they know what they are doing! :)
