Google brings magazines to Australian Android users

Magazines available from Google Play app store

From today, Australian users of Android devices are able to get purchase magazines on their smartphone or tablet, Google has announced. Magazines from publishers ACP Magazines, NewsLifeMedia and Pacific Magazines are now available to Australians through Google Play, the Android App store.

Magazines can be read using the Google Play Magazine App, and titles are available in 16 different categories, including automotive, business, entertainment and sport. Users can purchase single issues or subscribe to a title.

In April, for the first Australians were offered access to movie rentals through Google Play.

Google first added magazines to Play in late June, but Australians weren't able to access them until today.

Last month, Google announced that its app store had reached 25 billion downloads, a milestone rival Apple reached with its app store for iOS devices in March
