Google Play Newsstand crams Currents, magazines and newspapers into a single app

Google Play Newsstand

Google Newsstand is a new app designed to serve as the only place you’ll go to check your news. Or at least that’s what Google hopes for, and is thus merging its other properties into this new app, allowing users to quickly access their favorite magazines, newspapers and blogs. The service launches with more than 1,900 free and paid, full length publications that you can subscribe to or follow. Some of these include:

  • Newspaper Subscriptions: The Australian, The Financial Times, Los Angeles Times, The National Post, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
  • Magazines: Better Homes & Gardens, The Economist, Esquire, Fast Company, Forbes, Game Informer, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Shape, TIME, Vanity Fair and WIRED, from publishers like American Media Inc., Condé Nast, Hearst, Meredith, TIME Inc., and more.
  • News sites: ABC News, The Atlantic, CBS Sports, CNET, The Daily Beast, Huffington Post, The Guardian, NPR, Reuters, The Telegraph, and more.

If you’re in the US, Canada, UK or Australia, the Google Play Magazines app will be upgraded to Google Play Newsstand over the next few days. In all other countries, you can download the Play Newsstand app for your Android phone or tablet from Google Play.

    Google wants to have us use their apps for everything. And starts looking like Microsoft in 1990’s.
