INTERNET GIANT Google brought Google Play Magazines to the UK today, following its launch of Music last month.
Available from today, Google's new Magazines service lets users in the UK download a number of titles onto their Android devices. These magazines range from Hello to Classic Rock, and from Xbox to Crochet Today, which bizarrely enough presently sits at number four in Google's Top Magazines chart.
While Google's app is free, you'll have to pay a subscription to access each of the magazines. Hello magazine, for example, costs £2 per issue, while a monthly subscription will cost £8 and a yearly subscription £102. It also offers a seven-day free trial, so you can give Google's new app a spin.
Google said, "Discover hundreds of bestselling magazines on Google Play. You can shop a wide selection of titles, from cooking to technology, travel, fashion, sports, photography, and so much more. It's never been easier to find a great read to enjoy on vacation, lounging at home or on your morning commute.
"Buy new issues or back issues, subscribe and get free 14 or 30-day trials, and customize your reading experience for Android tablet or phone."
Magazines aren't all Google has rolled out today. It also finally released Google Maps for IOS, which has been welcomed by Iphone users, unsurprisingly. µ
