Google’s Play apps for Android are all getting a fancy new icon. The makeover brings a consistent look to the entire the entire family, and users can expect to see them on their Android devices in the coming weeks.

Although Google Play is one giant repository for apps, movies, music, books, and more, Google has always offered dedicated apps for each category on Android. There’s Play Movies & TV, Play Music, Play Games, Play Books, Play Newsstand, and the Play Store.

Until now, you wouldn’t know those apps were part of the same family¬†just by looking at their icons. Sure, they’re pretty,¬†and their material design look means they look great on Lollipop and Marshmallow. But Google wants all of its Play apps to share a consistent look.

The icons you see above will be rolling out to all Android users over the coming weeks, Google says. They’re bright and colorful, and they all share the Play button template that Android users will be well familiar with.
