Google Play, formerly known as the Android Market, is a digital application distribution platform for Android developed and maintained by Google. The service allows users to browse and download music, magazines, books, movies, television programs, and applications that were published through Google.
Applications are available either for free or at a cost, and they can be downloaded directly to an Android or Google TV device through the Play Store or onto a personal computer via its website. These applications are generally targeted to users based on a particular hardware attribute of their device, such as a motion sensor (for motion-dependent games) or a front-facing camera (for online video calling).
On March 6, 2012, with the merging of the Android Market and Google Music, the service was renamed Google Play to coincide with the rebranding of Google's digital distribution strategy.
