Can you believe it’s been 10 years since Google rebranded Android Market as Google Play? Now, as part of its 10-year anniversary, Google Play is getting a new logo.

The new logo has less vibrant colors that match shades of other logos from Google services. The company also offers Play Points members a 10x points bonus on purchases.

Why does this story matter?

  • Google Play, the world’s largest app store, is celebrating its 10th anniversary. The company has decided to make it special by releasing a new logo.
  • The new logo with less vibrant hues brings it closer to other Google services. It is a fitting celebration for a service that has brought the company a lot of profit and recognition.

The old Google Play logo had bright blue, green, red and yellow hues. The new logo has the same colors, but is very restrained or less lively.

The shades are similar to what Google uses for many of its services. The subtle tweaks also make it similar to the recently updated Google Chrome icon.

Let’s hope no one gets confused by the new logo.

The new logo matches brandings of other products: Google

Speaking about the logo change, Tian Lim, VP of Google Play said: “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.”

Google Play has over 2.5 billion monthly users

Android Market was launched in 2008 and renamed Google Play in 2012. The official app store for Android now has more than 2.5 billion monthly users in more than 190 countries.

Also branded as Google Play Store, it also works with over two million developers.

You will be surprised to learn that there are over 3.4 million apps in the Play Store.
