The first was Android Market, since 2012 it was renamed the Google Play Store. Other platforms and tracking services, such as Android Pay, provide Google Pay; Android Wear, known from 2018 as Wear OS; and recently, the Android Messages app, which from one day to the next is simply called Messages.
This is one of the Name changes that Google has done over the years, is gradually blocking the Android brand of content to give more prominence to the Google product, and to create chaos among the community of fans of this product's services. However, it looks like the company has not yet finalized all its plans in this regard, and is of the view to continue "modifying" its service catalog based on name changes. Or, at least, that's what rumors are coming from 9to5Google
Android TV, the next stage of changing its name and getting rid of the Android genre
Apparently, a source close to the company's plans revealed that it's Google's intention rename your platform with smart TVs. The most curious thing about this organization is the fact that Google TV has been in existence since 2010 as an independent platform, was finally replaced in 2014, precisely to make way for Android TV.
Therefore, this change of names will be added to the previous ones we mentioned earlier in this article, and a few of them will go a little further. subtracting prominence in everything related to the green, to somehow follow in the footsteps of companies like Apple and give the Google brand more value.
However, more than once Google itself explained that the "Android product type" will not go anywhere, at least somewhere in between. Without further ado, during the announcement of Android 10 in August 2019, Google introduced a end the product redesign, to introduce a new color palette, typing and logo, and say that the idea was make the brand sour and prepare it "In the next ten years"
Once the name has been transformed into a reality – when it finally happens – Android Auto platforms, Android Items and the app itself will keep the mark. Android in your name. But looking at Google's history in recent years, it wouldn't be surprising that a year from now the green robot logo and any other feature of this brand will be removed, again, on those platforms and services that still hold us. Or maybe not, with Google you never know.
