A ridiculously similar logo has been designed for the new Google Play

That's not true. It was Android Market that launched the original Android app store in August 2008, just a month after Apple introduced its App Store. However, Google Play was created through the merger of several other services, including Google Music and Google eBookstore.

In March of 2012, Google rebranded all of the above into a unified service called Google Play to simplify the user experience. Nevertheless, for some reason, Google will celebrate Google Play's 10th anniversary on July 25, making today the service's 10th birthday. It's weird, but it's okay.

As part of the celebration for the occasion, Google has introduced a brand new logo for Google Play, and at first, I had to squint hard to see the difference between the old logo and the new one.

The reason for that is because the new logo, just like the old one, still consists of a right-pointing arrow that is surrounded by green, blue, red, and orange shapes that overlap to create a combination of green, blue, red, and orange colors.

However, there are some differences between the two. There are slight differences between the new logo and the old one in terms of corners and colors, with the new logo having uniform colors instead of gradients.

As far as I am concerned, this is not an exciting change at all, but it's part of a recent design trend at Google that aims to make everything as flat and simple as possible.

As part of the Play Points program, Google is also offering some benefits for Play Points members, who will be able to earn 10 times the amount of points when making purchases with Play Points starting July 25.

For those of you who have never heard of Play Points, they are a reward system that allows you to earn points when you make purchases,

which can then be redeemed for certain in-app items or Google Play Credits, which in turn can be used for renting movies or purchasing audiobooks.
