Google Play update breaks Motorola phones' app links

updated 02:25 pm EST, Wed March 7, 2012

Some Moto phones not able to access Google Play

Google's recent renaming of the Android Market to Google Play is said to be causing some headaches for some Motorola smartphone owners. It rendered the app drawer market link unusable, as Motorola's Blur interface is searching for the old Android Market app. The only way around it so far, until an over-the-air update with a fix is released, is to find Play Store manually in the phone.

The flaw may not be present in all phones, as there are about 15 different versions of Blur on different handsets. The reported problems are found in the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX phones, however.

As Google just changed the name yesterday and phones are updating this week, it's possible other manufacturers with custom skins, such as HTC's Sense UI, may face similar problems. [via Droid-Life]
