Google Play Turns One, Celebrates with Free StuffBy: Josh Wolford - March 6, 2013
It’s been exactly one year since Google merged the Android Market, Google Music, and the Google eBookstore into a singular product called Google Play. So, happy first birthday, Google Play!
And for a week, Google is offering some free gifts to Play users in celebration.
“It was just a year ago today that we launched this amazing shop on the interwebs to offer the best in digital content. Since the best parties are the ones that send you home with a present, today we celebrate our birthday with a festive goodie bag full of gifts. Don’t delay in picking up these limited-time offers. Continue the celebration all week with even more special deals on music, movies, books, magazines and TV along with exclusive gaming gifts. It’s been an incredible first year and we look forward to sharing the gift of digital diversions for many more to come,” says the Google Play team.
Among the gifts for U.S. users (things should vary a bit by country) is free music from LCD Soundsystem and The Velvet Underground, the pilot of Breaking Bad, and offers from Fancy, Hotels.com app, and Gyft.
