Android Police reported earlier today that Google is offering a new subscription option. They’ve finally started offering print subscribers free access to certain digital magazines. It looks to only be available for a couple magazine publishers, but it is nonetheless a major step forward.
According to the Google Play help pages, the free digital subscriptions can be from the same menus as the paid subscription. Subscribers to a magazine published by Time Inc will need to enter an 11 digit code, while Conde Nast customer will need to enter their account info (email and password).
This is a major step forward for Google, and it helps them catch up with Apple, Nook, and Kindle, all of which have offered similar free subscriptions for some time now.
