What is the difference between Google Play and Chrome Web Store? Both of these places allow users to download web apps and games.

The Google Play Store allows you to download and purchase Android apps, as well as music, movies, TV shows, e-books and magazines, and some Android devices and accessories.

The Chrome Web Store allows you to download and purchase apps, extensions and themes for your Google Chrome browser (or Chrome OS device).
