Is your Google Play Store logo changed? Its part of 10 year Celebration

If you're perplexed by a new Google Play Store symbol, don't be. As part of its 10-year anniversary, Google Play receives a new logo. The new logo features less bright colors that mirror the tones of other Google services logos. The business is also giving Play Points users a 10x point increase on purchases.

Android Market was established in 2008 and relaunched as Google Play in 2012. The official Android app store now has over 2.5 billion monthly users from over 190 countries. It also works with over two million developers and is known as the Google Play Store. You'll be surprised to learn that the Play Store contains over 3.4 million applications.

The colors of the new Google Play logo resemble the updated Chrome logo - Google Play's old logo had bright blue, green, red, and yellow shades. The new logo has the same colors but is very low-key or less vibrant.

The hues are similar to what Google uses for many of its services. The subtle adjustments also make it similar to the recently updated Google Chrome icon and hope that no one gets confused by the new logo or considers it a fake google play store icon.

Speaking about the change to the logo, Tian Lim, VP of Google Play, said, "We're introducing a new logo that better reflects the magic of Google and matches the branding shared by many of our helpful products — Search, Assistant, Photos, Gmail and more."

Google is also providing 10X play points, Google Play Points are earned when you spend money in the Google Play Store. These points may then be redeemed for in-store credits, used to unlock rewards in applications and games, or even given to charitable organizations.  However, Google Play Points are not available in India.
