Google Play turns 10 years old!

Being in service for a decade, the digital marketplace dedicates their success to their users and developers.

In an official blog posted on July 25, Google Play VP Tian Lim expressed his gratitude for users’ endless support for their service. He also looked back on the days when they first launched the application in 2012.

“That year, we opened the doors of Google Play. A decade later, more than 2.5 billion people in over 190 countries use Google Play every month to discover apps, games and digital content” Lim posted.

“And more than 2 million developers work with us to build their businesses and reach people around the globe” he added.

The digital marketplace revamps their logo as they celebrate their 10th anniversary. The logo’s overall shape was slightly tweaked and the most noticeable are the less vibrant colors that match Google’s other services and new offer. The revamped logo complements the new Chrome logo which was updated earlier this year.

Lim explained the subtle adjustment on their logo.

“We’re introducing a new logo that better reflects the magic of Google and matches the branding shared by many of our helpful products — Search, Assistant, Photos, Gmail and more,” he said.

Lim also announced that they are offering Google Play users and developers a 10x boost Google Play users and developers to their Google Play Points, as token of appreciation.

With Google Play Points, users can:

·Earn points for purchases of digital content, in-app items, and downloads from the Google Play Store.

·Use points to get discount coupons, in-app items, or Google Play Credit.
