Google will soon introduce some new icons for its Android applications, reports Android Police. Rumored to be part of what’s called Project Moonshine, the new icons will more closely align with Google’s web-based counterparts. Details appear to include flatter images with more pronounced shadows with some getting more tweaks than others.

Alleged to be picking up some adjustment include

  • Calendar
  • Camera
  • Chrome
  • Google+
  • Gmail
  • Hangouts
  • Maps
  • People
  • YouTube
  • Play Books
  • Play Games
  • Play Movies
  • Play Music
  • Play Store

It’s not clear where Google is in terms of updating the icons or whether any further adjustments are in order.

In the meanwhile, those of you who like to flash your own ROMS, install themes, and play with icons might appreciate Phlash Tha’s latest icon bundle. Available for free, this kit includes .AI files (Adobe Illustrator) for playing around.
