Google Play: new place to have fun

Yesterday Google announced the launch of their new entertainment platform, Google Play. The service offers its users to buy movies, music, books and apps in one place and access them from their PC, tablet or Android phone.


Google Play will combine already existing Android Market, Google Music and Google eBookstore with the option to stream and download movies. Besides that, Google promises that all the content will be automatically synchronized on various devices you use to access Google Play, so that you can, for example, start watching a movie on your tablet and finish it on your PC. Cool, isn’t it?


Don’t get too excited, though. So far, all of the Google Play services are available exclusively to US users. In most other countries, including the Netherlands, you can only access the apps and games section, which is considerably less fun than your own fully synchronized cloud of different entertainment content Google Play can provide in the US. In Europe the music player is not available, and trying to access the books or movies section sends you to the following sad note:


Now Google is promoting Google Play with a 7-day sale offering a different album, book, video and app at a discounted price every day. ‘Our long-term goal is to roll out as many different types of content as possible to people around the world,’ – Google claims on the official blog. I hope that soon Google Play in its fullness will be available in Europe. In the meantime, here’s Google’s own intro for their new creation – enjoy!
