    Goodbye market, hello Google Play...

    So my market just updated itself into "Google Play". Anyone else seen that? (I'm running CM9 beta.)

    It looks just the same as market, but I assume it's more than a namechange here. The blurb says "Now your favorite music, books, movies, apps, and games are all in one place that's accessible from the Web and any Android device. Discover, buy and share like never before." Anyone tried it across devices?

    My EdenX Adam did not see such a change this morning. What's the point in the makeover (for us, at least) when movies, music and books are not offered for download in India?

    Edit: The web version of the market has also morphed to Google Play. Not much different except for a few link changes, but the interesting part is that Apps On Sale is back!

    You're not missing much. I paid for a movie and it wouldn't stream, turns out that rooted devices are blocked from downloading. I did get my money back though.

    Yes, I too checked just now. TuneIn Pro did not download and it's on sale. I got the refund, but they should tell us the reason.

    Shocking To hear that Google Is blocking out rooted devices. This is an Apple-like move.

    Correction: the app wasn't downloading at first although others updated just fine. The Market then got updated to the Play Store but still my repurchase didn't download.

    Ultimately, a reboot fixed it and I now have TuneIn Pro.

    The music streams and shows up as my music. Most of the sale apps I had already gotten from Amazon, so I didn't try. I might try with quell reflection, but 50 cents for a game is abit rich for my blood.

    edit: bought quell using my Adam and it downloaded just fine. Still have the refund window. Also played just fine as well. At least for a minute. Could it be only movies, or location based?

    Mine updated too. The resolution is much better and the app takes up the whole screen now, whereas before with ICS there was like an inch of space around all areas. Then again, maybe that's because I've changed my DPI to 140?

    My eyes are only 39, so I haven't changed my DPI yet. This update definitely fills the screen and at least at first was faster changing among the different sections. It seemed like it had more options as well. I like it, just wondering why Google thinks I'm a 92 year old and keeps popping up coffin ads?

    Just movies I believe. SDX developers forum has a modified app to get around it here: Google Videos with Root Check Disabled - SDX-Developers Forum but I haven't tried it out yet.

    Check out this page discussing root/Google Play - [MOD] Google Play Movies for rooted devices [?] - xda-developers

    There is an altered app (which, although clever, might cause issues later with items you've bought with it if google closes a hole) but another interesting idea is the app 'voodoo ota root keeper' - which can temporarily unroot your device. If that is good enough for Google (so they feel you aren't copying the rental stream with root off) it might be a solution everyone can live with.
