Google today has overhauled their Google Android Market and metamorphosed all of its content into Google Play. The move was to make its apps, games, videos and books all fly under one singular flagship banner. Google eBooks now redirects all users to Google Play and the company says it does not change the experience, or does it?
Google Play was developed
mainly because people say the App Store on their devices and thought to
themselves, it just has apps. Google has slowly integrated videos, music
and other content into the store and it was time for it to be changed
up after its three year milestone.
Google eBooks is basically
redirecting all of their old links to the new ones on Google Play. The
Google eBooks retailer API will not be changing as a result of the Play
launch. Books sold through Google retailer partners will still be called
Google eBooks. Users who purchase Google eBooks through retailer
partners will now read those books on Google Play. Google will provide
verbiage for retailer partners to help inform users of this change. What
if you are a retailer that sells Google Books on your website? There is
no immediate change to you as a Retailer partner of Google Books. You
will continue to sell Google eBooks via your website and your customers
will receive and read their books the same as they have been. The only
change is that your customers will be redirected to their Google Play
books library to access their purchased books.
