The Google Play Store is already 10 years old. Appeared in 2012 to replace the old Android Market, this online store has known and still knows a huge success with billions of users.
To celebrate this decade of existence, the Californian giant unveiled a new logo this week, largely inspired by its predecessor. We still find the famous inclined triangle that forms the Play sign, but the colors of the latter have been modified to better match the other applications in the Google ecosystem. Google Chrome’s logo also underwent the same change earlier this year.
Today we’re introducing a new logo that better reflects the magic of Google and better matches the branding shared by many of our other tools – Search, Assistant, Photos, Gmail and many more. […] A decade later, more than 2.5 billion people in more than 190 countries use Google Play every month to discover new apps, games and digital content. […] And more than 2 million developers work with us to build their business and reach people all over the world.
For the occasion, Google has also launched a Google Play points boost period. It is now possible to activate it for 24 hours by clicking on your profile in order to benefit from 10 times more points with each purchase.
This year marks our 10th year of Google Play-ing. To celebrate, we’re offering Play Points members a 10x points boost, starting today. How has it been a DECADE 🤔🤯🤔 Claim your points boost here: https://t.co/xoVIQsxHns#PlayTurns10pic.twitter.com/76pQbQqDBY
