Google Play, also branded as the Google Play Store and formerly Android Market, is a digital distribution service operated and developed by Google.
It serves as the official app store for certified devices running on the Android operating system and its derivatives as well as ChromeOS, allowing users to browse and download applications developed with the Android software development kit (SDK) and published through Google.

Google Play logo as of 25 July 2022
The new Google Play logo retains the basic form of the previous design, which cleverly evokes a ‘Play’ button, the colours (red, green, blue and yellow) are now bolder, more saturated and make more of an impact. The change brings the colours in line with other Google logos, such as the Google Chrome and Google Drive logos and the logo for the eponymous search engine.
