Summary Box: Android Market becomes Google Play

NAME CHANGE: Android Market, Google’s digital marketplace for mobile applications, music, movies and books, will be known as the Google Play Store.

WHAT’S BEHIND THAT: The selections won’t change, but Google wants to spruce up the shopping experience. With Google Play, the company hopes those who bought mobile apps will start noticing other types of content and consider buying an electronic book or album, too.

OTHER CHANGES: The rebranding will be ushered in with a series of tweaks designed to make it easier for customers to manage their content and navigate from one section of the store to another.
