17 Dec 12 Google Play Magazines officially lands in the UK, one month after music


While Brits have been able to buy music from Google Play for exactly a month now, the switch has just been flipped for magazines too, meaning UK folks can now download anything from Wired and Hello, to Mac|Life and, er, Yachting World.

Google Play Magazines finally rolled out beyond the US at the end of October, launching for its North American neighbours, Canada. Visitors to Google Play in the UK started seeing the changes yesterday, but the magazines weren’t yet available for purchase until today.

While music landed in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK around the same time last month, it seems likely that these other territories will shortly follow for magazines too – indeed, the magazines section is already appearing in some of the local versions of these stores, so it’s safe to say they’ll be made available very shortly too.

As with other localized stores, you can search by ‘Top Magazines’, or by ‘Categories…which includes everything from Arts Photography, to News Politics.

In terms of pricing, well, by way of example you can buy a single issue of Condé Nast’s Wired Magazine for £2.99 which is £1 cheaper than the physical copy, or a yearly subscription of £17.99, though if you choose to be billed monthly it will cost £1.99 an issue. The subscriptions will be billed directly through your Google Account, as with any apps, and many of them come with a free 30-day trial included.

It’s also worth noting that there is a dedicated Google Play Magazines Android app so you can browse and buy publications directly from your smartphone or tablet.

So, another big push forward for Google on the content front – and we can likely expect to see Magazines made available in a number of additional territories moving forward.

15 Dec 12 Imagine magazine portfolio now available on Google Play





[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Imagine Publishing’s ‘Content is King’
strategic took a seismic leap forward today with the news that the
company’s portfolio of 19 technology magazines have launched
on Google Play for Android smartphones and tablets.

Google’s pioneering Google Play magazines service and
rival to Apple Newsstand went live in the USA in March 2012, and
from today it is available in the UK as an update on all Android
devices running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and above.

Google Play Magazines can be browsed on a desktop PC, or via an
Android mobile app, with issues stored in the Cloud and
synchronised across multiple devices. Single issues of magazines or
bookazines can be purchased easily, and new subscribers get a free
14-day or 30-day trial which can be cancelled at any time.

The Imagine portfolio is particularly suited to mobile devices
and it includes popular worldwide magazine brands such as iCreate,
How It Works, games™, Retro Gamer, Photoshop® Creative,
Digital Photographer, Android Magazine and SciFiNow. Soon to follow
on Google Play will be Imagine’s globally successful
bookazine range.

Imagine’s stable of titles cover a wide range of
technology topics that are now for the first time available direct
from Google Play Magazines, and readers can also browse the
complete Imagine inventory on the digital editions portal
GreatDigitalMags.com. Today’s announcement
represents yet another leap forward for Imagine’s
internationalisation and digitisation strategy.

“Google Play Magazines is the most exciting thing to
happen to digital publishing since the launch of Apple’s
Newsstand last year,” said Group Managing Director Damian
Butt. “For the first time, Imagine Publishing’s
magazines and bookazines are available to purchase worldwide 24/7
on every updated Android smartphone and tablet – that’s
hundreds of millions of new potential readers of Imagine’s
high quality content.”

Imagine’s Group Creative Director Mark Kendrick said:
“Imagine has always been keen to push the envelope of digital
publishing, so we are really excited with today’s
announcement of our partnership with Google. Imagine magazines will
look better and read better than ever on Google Play as all our
titles will be displayed in beautiful high resolution. And with the
Magazine app’s built in Text View option, Imagine magazines
and bookazines have never been more accessible to a massively
growing worldwide readership. It’s a truly ground-breaking
opportunity, and one that Imagine intends to build on,”
Kendrick added.

Imagine Publishing is one of the UK’s fastest-growing
multimedia content publishers. Formed in May 2005, it now publishes
19 regular print magazines, 50 digital apps, over 240 bookazines,
29 websites and thousands of articles every month in the
technology, videogames, photography and knowledge/science markets.
An Imagine magazine is purchased every ten seconds.
