Google has made a few changes to the Android Market over the last 24 hours, the most noticeable being that it has changed the name from ‘Android Market’ to ‘Google Play’, completely revamping the logo at the same time. The maximum file size for apps has also been upped from 50MB to 4GB. When it comes to downloading large apps, the demo period will not begin on most new devices until the entire download has finished, meaning it will only be time spent downloading that is wasted if you don’t like an app, not money as well.
The new ‘Google Play’ name has come under some criticism across the web, but it’s not uncommon for such changes to invoke an outcry from communities that have become accustomed to such a popular product. We think it’s not that bad at all, and the new logo certainly looks better than the last.
