The term Play was nothing but Google Play Edition smartphone which had Stock Android UI without any customisation on top. The GPE smartphone users to receive updates directly from Google and was similar to what we saw on Android One series.Some of the smartphones which launched under GPE was Samsung Galaxy S4 GPE, Moto G Play, etc. which were available to purchase via Google Play Store.But Google has already ended this program in early 2015 and only Lenovo and Motorola were launching devices with name Play till date.
