    Really, they should just put "Google" in front of everything and it would be so much more obvious.
    "Google store"
    "Google music"
    "Google videos"
    The whole "play" thing is just extraneous. It brands all of the software as "Play" and not "Google". People trust and like Google and have absolutely no idea what Play is.

    Love the comments and opinions here. Now that some people have replied, I figure I'll share mine.

    I don't think Google should have changed it to Play if they needed to change it. Play just seems to broad and doesn't really encompass anything Android. It encompasses services and features but like what BroidDrionic said, it will be harder for new Android Users to pick up.

    And yes, I know I made a grammar error in the poll as soon as I posted the thread, but sadly, I can't change it so just deal with it

    Got this text msg from VZW on 3/10/2012:

    Free VZW msg: Android Market is becoming Google Play. Android Market on your phone will receive an upgrade in the next few days. To learn more, click play.google.com/about (data charges may apply).

    Edit:
    Got the v3.4.7 update (Play Store) today.

    Why can't everyone just continue to call it the market? I know I will.

    I think the name is also lame, but it looks the same so I really don't care what it's called. I did, however, start thinking about the crap with Amazon when they started their Amazon Market. I thought they actually went into litigation over the name "Market". I'm wondering if Google was forced to change the name, or were told that they don't have a copyright on the name "Markekt". Just some idle thoughts I had.
    Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

    I'm gonna keep calling it Market. For them to change the name after so many years was a dumb decision imo. If you're gonna change it at least make it a better name

    The Google music icon is uglier. The whole play idea...why?

    My friend told me the HP store calls every HP play so why do the same thing as them? Idk I just don't get it. Changing something like a name is not necessary in my opinion.
