How to solve:

Since Android Studio 3.3, the icon has been updated and moved back across to the right:

For me I did following to make it visible:

  1. Go to File -> settings -> Menus and Tool bar as shown
    here
  2. Click on Restore Default

You should see the Updated Android.MainToolBarGradleGroup as follows:
Updated Menu

  1. Click on Apply and restart the Android Studio

File > Sync Project With Gradle Files

In Android Studio under 3.1 it’s placed in

Tools > Android > Sync Project with Gradle Files
