Google Play Magazines Adds New Print/Digital Subscription Options

google magazine subscription 2I’m not sure I know anyone who subscribes to magazines via Google Play Magazines, but with this new offer from Conde Nast I’m sure some will consider it.

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.
