About Google Play

Google Play is Google's marketplace for Android apps, music, movies and books. Android users go there to buy and download their mobile apps. As a result, Android App spaces with connections to Google Play offer valuable metrics on user adoption and engagement.

Tip: As a security best practice, you might want to connect to Google Play using a separate Google user account that has access to your Android Developer Console. This gives an Android App space access to your application's metrics without using account credentials that many be tied to other Google services, such as Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Docs.
