    I think it's a bug with your vpn, and Google servers

    Wow, that is odd. Try all the basic steps first, restart your phone and your router. Since this missing icon issue does appear to be tied to your home WiFi network, focus on that. You should also try wiping the cache for the Google Play Store app and the Google Play Services app.

    If after all that the problem is still occurring, you should look into your router's settings menu. What kind of router do you have, is it an ISP-supplied modem/router unit or do you have your own separate router?

    This seems very suspicious. It could, of course, simply be a coincidence, but... *shrug*

    Actually it sounds to me like the VPN and Google is working correctly, as the icons are showing with the VPN. Because I know if I don't use a VPN, I see absolutely nothing from Google Play.

    I suggest the problem is almost certainly with the new ISP as all connected devices are affected. Maybe a problem with their routing or local caching? A misconfigured firewall?

    OP did you reset your router after switching ISP?

    Since all your devices are affected, AND this problem began after changing ISPs, my advice is to contact the ISP. They should be able to do some troubleshooting, but more likely they'll need to send a technician out to diagnose the problem.
