After the merge in November 20, 2013, Google Currents was discontinued and Google Play Magazines was renamed to Google Play Newsstand. This logo looks relevantly similar to the previous one.

Google Play Newsstand, along with every Google app, has received a major redesign after the release of Android Lollipop.



A new logo was released after the release of Android Nougat. The color looks purple rather than navy. In May 15, 2018, Google Play Newsstand merged with Google News and Weather to form Google News. After the merge, this logo continued to be used until it dissolved completely in late 2018.
