It’s been 10 years since the app store for the Android mobile operating system changed its name. Before that, it was called Android Market, and now it is known to everyone as Google Play.
The statistics are impressive: the store is used by 2.5 billion people per month from 190 countries around the world. It also has two million developers. The store currently works on Android smartphones and tablets, Wear OS smartwatches, Android and Google TV devices, Chromebooks, and even cars on the Android Automotive platform.
The company decided to celebrate this with a new logo and increased bonuses for users. The updated logo repeats the concept of the previous one while preserving the corporate colors.
In addition to the new logo, Google found an additional way to celebrate the anniversary of the Google Store. Internal bonuses of the Google Play Points loyalty program can increase by 10 times. They are usually calculated as 1 point per $1.
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 #PlayTurns10 pic.twitter.com/ 76pQbQqDBY
