Google Play icons 2016 redesign

Google give Play apps a new look

Google has started rolling out a new set of icons for all of its Play apps. Whilst the changes are cosmetic only, they affect some of the most commonly-used apps on Android, with the Play Store, Play Movies & TV, Play Music, Play Games, Play Books and Play Newsstand all refreshed

The reason for the changes is to ensure a consistent appearance across the Play family of apps, according to Google.

All of the affected apps will now feature Google’s distinctive play button icon, which is already used for the Play Store.
