Google Play app icons get an overhaul with brighter color and unified design


Google is giving Google Play apps icons a make over with a refreshed look and design. The main aim of the overhaul is to offer a more consistent look to the app portfolio.

For starters, the app icons are getting unified logo design with the “play” button being common at the background. All the apps have become brighter and now sport a flatter design. Apps like Play Movies, Play Music, Play Games, Play Newstand feature the same triangle play button in the background with minor tweaks on the front logo. However, Play Music logo has been completely changed as Google has chucked the headphones and added old vinyl record with a music note at the center as an icon.

Google said you will start seeing these new icons across various apps and on the web “in the coming weeks.”
