Google Officially Unveils Play Store Logo Redesign, Marking A Decade For The App
By Alexa Heah, 26 Jul 2022
Can you believe it’s already been 10 years since Google opened the (digital) doors of Google Play?
Since its launch, the online marketplace has been used by 2.5 billion people across 190 countries each month, with more than two million developers having built applications.
Just a couple weeks ago, keen eyes on the internet had spotted that Google’s Play Store had subtly tweaked its logo, toning down its neon-hues to be more in line with the colors used in the Gmail, Google Drive, and regular Google emblems. Then, the symbol was only shown as a tiny icon, so hats off to users for noting the refresh.

Now, the technology giant has officially confirmed the change, saying that it had planned to mark a decade of the Play Store’s journey with a redesigned logo that “better reflects the magic of Google, and matches the branding shared by many of our helpful products.”
While the change isn’t too obvious at first glance, upon closer look, you’ll see that the triangle in the image appears more symmetrical, and its corners are more curved.
Take a look at the Google Play Store’s new logo and its colors below.
