In a logo revamp, the digital distribution service has come up with fewer vibrant colours that match the green, yellow, blue and red hues of many of the Google applications users use.
As per reports, the new logo compliments the new Google Chrome logo that was updated earlier this year.
Tian Lim, vice-president 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 helpful products – Search, Assistant, Photos, Gmail and more.”
Liam said that nearly a decade later, more than 2.5 billion people in over 190 countries use Google Play every month to discover apps, games and digital content.
The vice-president further said that more than two million developers work with them to build their businesses and reach people around the globe.
The Google app store was rebranded to Play Store in 2012 and was earlier called as Android Market.
