The Google Play Store and apps have been with us for a decade. To celebrate the anniversary, the Mountain View giant decided to change the logo of the service. Don’t worry, the difference is so small that you probably won’t even notice the change.
Google is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Google Play
10 years ago, that is, in 2012, with Android 1.0, the Android Market also appeared, which only after a few years received the name Google Play, as we know it today. The service is currently available in over 190 countries and is used by over 2.5 billion users. As for the developers who deliver apps to the store, they are over 2 billion. These are truly impressive numbers.
We use Google Play on Android smartphones and tablets, but the store can also be found on Chromebooks, smart TVs, or Wear OS watches. It’s been on all these devices ever since today we will find a new service logo. Let’s just mention that today the change is rolled out, but it will probably take some time for the new icon to appear to everyone.
The change, as you can see above, is rather symbolic. Google introduced darker colors and slightly changed the shape of the “triangle” to match the rest of the services offered by the company. As the Mountain View giant explains, the new logo reflects “The magic of Google fits into the branding shared by many of our products – Assistant, Photos, Gmail and more.”
