Google folds Currents and Magazines into new Newsstand app

New app aims to deliver all of your favorite magazines, news sources, blogs, and more.

Google on Wednesday unveiled its newest app for consumers with the introduction of Google Play Newsstand. Combining pieces of both the Play Magazines app and Google Currents, it’s a central hub for all reading all of your favorite content.

Be it in the form of magazines, newspapers, periodicals, blogs, or other news sources, Google Play Newsstand should have you covered. At launch there are more than 1,900 free and paid, full length publications with which to subscribe. You can manage your subscriptions to everything through one place, finally, and for the first time.

As is the case with Play Magazines, many of the subscriptions feature a 30-day free trial. And, keeping with other apps like Flipboard, Newsstand is designed to deliver a gorgeous layout that provides the news you love most. In fact, Google’s app has been created to learn you and your habits and continually improve over time. What’s more, you’ll be updated all time and you can even read in offline mode.

The Google Play Magazines app will be upgraded to Google Play Newsstand over the next few days for those living in the US, Canada, UK or Australia. In all other countries, you can download the Play Newsstand app directly from Google Play. If you’re a Google Currents user, you can upgrade to Play Newsstand by downloading the new app where all of your subscriptions and sources will have migrated seamlessly.
