Hello, I hope you are having a good day! Today in this post, we are going to discuss about the new Amazon app icon update. Amazon has quietly rolled out a slight update to its new app icon that
debuted in January, altering the colorful strip of ribbon on the icon that bore an unfortunate resemblance to a toothbrush-style mustache.
What is Amazon?
Amazon (Amazon.com) is the world’s largest online retailer and a leading provider of cloud services.
Originally started as an online book-selling company, Amazon has transformed into an Internet-based business company that primarily focuses on providing e-commerce, cloud computing, digital streaming, and artificial intelligence services.
Following an Amazon sales-to-shopper approach, the company offers a monumental product range and inventory, allowing consumers to buy just about anything, including clothing, beauty items, gourmet food, jewelry, books, movies, electronics, and more. , pet supplies, furniture, toys, garden supplies and household items.
Headquartered in Seattle, Amazon has individual websites, software development centers, customer service centers, data centers, and fulfillment centers around the world.

The toothbrush mustache was originally popularized by comedians like Charlie Chaplin in the early 20th century before he became forever associated with Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
Amazon made a few changes to the icon following customer feedback since its initial release before rolling out the final design worldwide. An Amazon representative commented that “Amazon is always exploring new customs to delight our customers. We designed the new icon to build anticipation, excitement, and joy when customers begin their shopping journey on their phone, just as they do when they see our checkouts at their doorstep.”
It is a change that makes sense. Amazon ads have depicted the A-Z arrow adorning its packaging as singing mouths, and in that light, the jagged edge and width of the blue ribbon in the icon design above looks uncomfortably similar to the tonsoral edge.

According to People magazine, “The icon’s recent update was the first in more than five years and launched for the first time in January in select European countries. When it debuted worldwide on February 22, it had undergone changes based on customer feedback.
“Amazon is always discovering new ways to delight our customers,” an Amazon spokesperson told PEOPLE in a statement. “We designed the new icon to build anticipation, excitement, and joy when customers begin their shopping journey on their phone, just as they do when they see our checkouts at their doorstep.”
However, Amazon’s design team can take solace in joining the storied annals of modern companies that have been forced to digitally shave off controversial mustaches. Plus, the new icon is already getting much more auspicious comparisons: apparently, the angular ribbon now makes it look like Avatar: Aang from The Last Airbender.
