Analysing the intricate changes.
Android has over 2.8 billion users around the world and this year the tech company introduced an evolutionary logo for its app store Google Play, with intricate details you cannot miss out on. “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,” explains Tian Lim, VP of Google Play. The new logo and iconography also marks 10 years of Google Play after it was rebranded from the Android Market in 2012.
Google has slightly tweaked the overall shape of its Google Play logo, but the most notable changes are the less vibrant colours that more closely match the green, yellow, blue, and red hues that Google uses for many of its other services. It’s a subtle adjustment that also complements the new Chrome logo updated earlier this year.
This latest change isn’t the first change to the Google Play logo since the app store’s launch. The last version of the logo dated back to 2016, when Google ditched gradients for block colours and corrected a misaligned Centre where the colours meet, this change was only visible if zoomed in.
