Google is updating its Play family of apps with a unified icon design

Google has announced that it will be rolling out a new set of icons to its Play family of apps. The suite of apps includes Google Play, Play Store, Play Movies & TV, Play Music, Play Games, Play Books and Play Newsstand. All of the icons now have the same triangular design so at a glance they look similar, yet they each feature a distinction to make it easy to recognize the app.

From Google's announcement:

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.You'll start to see the new Google Play icons across devices and online in the coming weeks. We hope you'll continue enjoying the Play family of products—now with a new look.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the new icons to appear on your devices. What are your thoughts on the changes? Let us know in the comments!
