Google Drops The Shopping Bag For Its New Play Store Logo
By Izza Sofia, 15 May 2017
Google has quietly rolled out a new logo for the Play Store, as Android Police has noticed. The new logo drops the shopping bag, just leaving the colorful triangle as the new icon.
While the new icon first appeared on Google’s new Pixel phone, the bagless design is now rolling out to other devices too.
Although it is a very subtle change, the redesign comes with a big branding message. As Google continues to tweak logo designs, it is creating a cohesive visual identity tied to the clean, material design aesthetic that the company announced a few years ago.
Even though the company has updated the Play Store logo, it still maintains its “playful” use of color.
A Google spokeswoman said, “It has been on our wishlist to make the Play icon more modern, simple, and, yes, Play-ful. It's tough to say goodbye to the shopping bag, but we're clearly not playing games anymore. You still should, though, after you tap that cool new icon”.
