Google Play Incites Mixed Twitter Reaction

By: Zach Walton - March 6, 2012

Did you hear? Google is combining all of their media services like Google Music, Android Market and Google Books into one giant service called Google Play.

People are surely going to debate the change over the coming days on whether or not this was a good move. Good thing Twitter is here to give us the gut reaction.

Really stoked about Google Play being released today. It’s Google’s equivalent to iTunes. I love that it’s web based and not an application. 1 minute ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Google Play is a dumb name for a place that sells apps, music, movies etc. The logo is nice though. 2 minutes ago via tGadget ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Android Market is now called Google play (??). Except some small design tweaks, it just looks just the same. 3 minutes ago via TweetDeck ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

There was a time when I was excited whenever Google launched a new beta or product. Somehow that magic has gone away. meh Google Play meh 4 minutes ago via web ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Not entirely sure about the rebranding of Android Market in Google Play. One of its advantages was that it *wasn’t* entirely tied to Google. 4 minutes ago via TweetDeck ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto
