The Google Play store will now sell movies, TV shows and magazine subscriptions, Google announced Wednesday.
This is important news for any Android users but it was overshadowed by other major Google announcements from its Google I/O keynote, especially since the announcement was basically used as a gap filler between the introduction of Jelly Bean and the unveiling of the Nexus 7 tablet.
TV shows and magazine subscriptions are brand new additions to Google Play. Movies were previously available on the digital Google store but they could only be rented.
The three additions join apps, games, music and books on Google Play, which Google introduced in March to replace the Android Market, which was a store only for apps.
