In November, Google launched a new Android app called Google Play Newsstand that effectively replaced Currents, its newsreader app for the Web, and Magazines, its app for downloading and reading digital publications.
This new app uses the card view widely recognized from Google Now to show a personalized blend of titles from the Google Play store and content sourced from blogs, RSS feeds and other publications on the Web. The promise is that Google Play Newsstand’s recommendations will improve as you continue to use the app, surfacing new articles based on your subscriptions and preferences.
The app is gorgeous to look at, but power users might feel a little detached by the Read Now section. Articles appear as individual cards and there are rows of square icons to look at specific publications, but this is a curated experience, so you’ll never feel like you’re getting the full picture. Instead, you’ll want to head to the My News section, which lets you quickly find your favorite news outlets and delve into their stories and features.
