In the beginning of the new year, Google has come up with a news for the Google News users. The company has decided to remove premium digital magazines from Google News’ catalogue. Print-replica magazines are not doubts the most popular items to surf on the News app, but the company is officially removing them from the News.
Apparently, the company has started sending out emails with all the information regarding this move. The company is refunding the money to all the Google News users who have paid for these magazines.
Print-replica magazines are digital forms of the original magazines that come in PDF format. Users can view and read out the magazines right from their Android Smartphone and Tablet devices. Interestingly, e-versions of these magazines are still available for the users but they have to visit their website for the same.
After this move, you will be not be able to purchase the Print-replica magazine from Google News. You will not even subscribe or renew your subscriptions as the company is refunding the subscription fees of the Print-replica magazines for the users who have subscribed for them.
Furthermore, Google has suggested to its users that they can still read out the magazines just by entering the name of the magazine in the search box within the Google News app. But the magazine will not be a Print-replica one. You can just read it out like normal pages. You can also subscribe to each magazines one by one as per your needs.
To recall the memory, Google has started offering Magazines from the year 2012 through its new Play Magazines app. It was an independent app which was soon rebranded as Play Newsstand. Later on, the app was merged with the Google’s News app and now the company is discontinuing the support of its Magazines App from the Google News app. Apparently, Google is killing the 2012 Play Magazines app by removing the Print-replica magazines from its store.
