Techopedia explains Google Play

Google Play's services are similar to Apple's iTunes and iCloud. It can be thought of as Google's answer to rival Apple’s rising dominance in the personal cloud service market.

Characteristics include:
  • Because it's cloud based, users may access and use apps through a single portal.
  • It's social media friendly. Users may use Google Plus (Google+) to share content, including movies, music, books, mobile games and apps.
  • Recommends interesting apps or content based on favorite movies or music genres, authors or addictive apps.
