Google Play app icons are getting the candy-colored flat design treatment

New, 59 comments

Google today unveiled revamped app icons for its family of Play apps to bring each one in line with the company's more colorful flat design aesthetic. There have been separate apps for services like Play Music and Play Books for about four years now. But the way those apps are discovered in mobile stores can be a bit muddled now that Google has updated and iterated on its design language countless times across its myriad product lines.

The old icons, which you can still check out now in the Play Store or iOS App Store, look especially stale when compared with Google's more modern sans-serif logo it revealed last fall. So the new consistency will be a welcome change. Google says the updates will be going out in the next couple of weeks.
