Google Play Magazines opens its stand in the UK

Google Play Magazines opens its stand in the UKIt’s already proved hugely popular with Android users in the US of A, and Google Play Magazines has finally made the transatlantic voyage.

The Google Play Magazines app is available now from Google Play, and allows Android users to – you guessed it – buy, subscribe to, and read magazines. Lovely.

The UK Google Play Magazines model lands with over 100 titles on offer, including Total Guitar, GQ, Wired, Total Film, Esquire, .net, Elle and Vogue. Something for everyone.

For select titles, Google Play Magazines offers a 30-day free trial, though it sounds like the subscription automatically kicks in after that period, so keep your wits about you.

Needless to say, it’s more cost effective to go for an up-front 12-month subscription, though single issues are available via Google Play Magazines, too.

And that’s Google Play Magazines. After installing the app, you should see a new section in the Google Play Store for magazines. Go forth and, eh, read stuff.

You don't need to install the app to see the new section of the Play Store, I can look through the selection of magazines but I don't have the app installed.

Google Currents is enough for me

Although I use to have a iPhone, 1 thing I liked was the Newsstand would update to the latest issue of Metro every morning, hope Google does something like that

I agree, the internet killed the need for magazines. I don't need to wait 3-4 weeks to find out the "latest" tech and car news, Twitter and Google allow me to find it out in minutes.
