The Android Blog announced today that Google is updating its suite of app icons to give them a fresh, consistent look. The new icons will be gradually rolling out across Android devices and online sites over the next few weeks.


Play Store, Play Movies & TV, Play Music, Play Games, Play Books and Play Newsstand are all among the apps getting updated, with a focus on the triangular Google Play icon.


“Whether you like watching Despicable Me on Google Play Movies & TV, streaming “Sorry” on Play Music, battling your friend in Clash Royale on Play Games or reading John Grisham’s latest on Play Books, Google Play is your home for the best apps, games and digital entertainment. Since launching Google Play four years ago, we’ve always had dedicated apps in addition to the Google Play store. Today, all our icons are getting an update to provide a consistent look across the entire family of Play apps.”

For even more consistency, I’d like to see Google use the same colors for the Google logo and the Play icons, but we can’t have everything. What do you think? Do you like the new icons?

  1. New icons are nice and make sense, not that I had a complaint with the old ones. The Play family branding is clear, their link to Android or Google brands less so now perhaps.
