Google has officially indicated that there are now more 700,000 apps in the Google Play Store, available for smartphones and tablets. The news comes just a short week after Apple made the same claim for its App Store and looks to be a race to the next milestone. After getting a late start against Apple four years ago this month, the Google Play Store/Android Market has grown some serious momentum en route to becoming the largest app distribution channel.
The tech gods have settled a longstanding feud. Google is returning the official YouTube app to Fire TV. In response, Amazon is opening Prime Video to Chromecasts and Android TV.
