    I think it's a stupid name. Like Netflix wanting to spinoff into Quikster. Android Market name has legacy. Play Apps. Play Books and Play music. Sounds really crazy too me. Not all apps are "play". Not all books are audio as in play. Though I never used any other service but the app store. I think Google may regret changing the market to this. I'm not even using, nor do I care to use the unified market/store. I don't download music, books or movies. Just apps. I'm running the 2.3.8 old market. Blocked all ota market updates.

    This makes me feel like I'm in the Playstation Network store or some Sony name something for some reason.. not a fan of it. But, oh well I suppose.

    When I heard the name that is EXACTLY what I thought. Like Sony Xperia Play. I'm shocked Sony isn't suing for calling the market "play". I don't know.

    Yea I think they must have intended this naming convention new unified approach to be Google Pay not Play :)

    Pay music, Pay Books, Pay Store

    It is very odd for sure, nothing looks any different other than the names and icons. Still the name Play was a strange choice. Nice Telecaster in your avatar. :)

    I got a problem. Mine wasn't updating so I went in to the market. It said they were changing it and I heard about the problems so I didn't agree to the terms of service, so it closed out. When I clicked it, it said that it wouldn't work and I should try restarting go launcher ex. I did and still won't work. I restarted my phone and it still won't work. Now what?

    What's in a name...
    As far as not informing anyone, they informed everyone who reads news articles.
    I knew it was coming.

    ...and of course the workaround to install Google Wallet starting in the browser then going back and using the Market doesn't work anymore.
