On August 28, 2008 — 7 years ago today — Google announced Android Market, an online center where people would be able to find, buy, download, and rate apps and other content for mobile phones based on the Android open-source operating system. Google described this new digital distribution platform — a clear competitor to the Apple Store (and AmazonApps store) — as “similar to YouTube” as “content can debut in the marketplace after only 3 simple steps:  register as a merchant,  upload and describe...content and  publish it.” Google said that it chose the term “market,” rather than “store,” because Google felt that “developers should have an open and unobstructed environment to make their content available.”
Android Market was initially released to the public on October 22, 2008 (about 2 months after the announcement this day 7 years ago); it was merged into Google Play on March 6, 2012 along with Google Music and Google eBookstore. Statista.com reported in 2015 that the apps on Google Play had grown to a larger number than the apps available on iTunes.
