Google Play gets a new logo today to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Google has tweaked the overall shape of its Google Play logo slightly, but the most noticeable changes are the less vibrant colors that more closely match the green, yellow, blue, and red hues that Google uses for many of its other services. It’s a subtle tweak that also complements the new, updated Chrome logo earlier this year.
“We are introducing a new logo that better reflects the magic of Google and matches the branding shared by many of our useful products – Search, Assistant, Photos, Gmail and more,” said Tian Lim, vice president of Google Play. The new logo and iconography also marks 10 years of Google Play after it was rebranded from Android Market in 2012.
“A decade later, more than 2.5 billion people in more than 190 countries use Google Play every month to discover apps, games and digital content,” says Lim. “And over 2 million developers work with us to grow their businesses and reach people around the world. »
To mark 10 years of Google Play, Google is also giving Google Play Points a boost. If you activate the Points Booster (start dates vary by country), you’ll earn 10x points on purchases, including most in-app items.
