A few days ago, Google announced newly revised icons for its Play-branded apps. Newsstand was the first to emerge with the updated look, but aside from very minor tweaks to a few of the icons inside the app, there wasn't anything significant to be seen.

Netflix Goes Global: Now Available Everywhere Except China, North Korea, Crimea, And Syria
