Google Play finds its place on the Google navigation bar

Google adds their newly-named Google Play store to the ever-present navigation bar

The Google Play store has joined Gmail, Google Docs, and Google+ on the Google navigation bar that appears over all Google web applications, including search.

In the beginning of March, Google combined Android Market, Google Music, and Google eBookstore into Google Play, looking to drive app purchasers to a wider variety of Google's digital store offerings.

The changes serve to make Google Play more enticing as Apple's iTunes and Amazon draw more consumers under their digital umbrella.
