Google Play Apps Makeover

Thursday, April 14th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Android, Smartphones

If you own an Android device, you know that the Google Play Store is your one-stop-shop for apps, music and more.


But did you also know that Google offers dedicated apps for using its digital products? They do and those apps are getting an icon makeover to make sure people can tell that they’re related to the Play Store.

I thought now would be a good time to look at each of the apps and what they do.

You’re probably already familiar with the Play Store. If you need an app for your phone, this is the icon you tap. Also, if you need to uninstall and reinstall an app, this is the place to go.


Play Movies & TV can be opened by tapping the icon below.


This app lets you play movies and videos purchased for rented from the Google Play store.


Play Music is a very useful app.


Not only does it play music purchased from Google, but it also organizes and serves as a player for songs that you have loaded onto your phone.


If you’re into gaming, you’ll want to check out Google Play Games.


Games allows you to record gaming moments and share achievements and scores with your game playing friends.

Play Books is an eReader designed for reading books purchased in the Play Store.


You can also use it to read your PDF and EPUB files.


Play Newsstand allows you to read magazine and newspaper subscriptions purchased through Google Play.


Many of these apps are pre-installed (and not removable) from Android phones. As long as you have them, you should check them out.
