Google Play gets TV, movie, and magazine purchases for Nexus 7

Google Play logoGoogle today announced the addition of TV, movies, and magazine purchases to Google Play. The service will launch today with major partners on board already. Partners include Disney, ABC, NBC Universal, Sony Pictures, and Paramount for video, and Hearst and Conde Nast for print. Previously, only rentals of such content was offered through Google Play.

In addition to the new content ownership, Google introduced updates for developers such as better analytics and easier ways to interact with both users and each other. These updates include app encryption (which appears to be a DRM system to protect apps), smart updates (where only the parts of the APK that change are downloaded during an update), and Google Cloud Messaging (a new, free push system without quotas or limits).

This post will be updated with any further Google Play announcements happening at the Google I/O keynote. You can follow along live with the event at the Ars liveblog.
