Subscribe to Phandroid in Google Play Newsstand!


Earlier today, Google announced that Google Currents and Google Play Magazines would be combined into one convenient app. For those new to the experience, Currents lets you get all the news you care about from all your favorite sources — including Phandroid — in one easy to reach place. With the new release, we felt now was as good a time as any to remind you that you can find us in those parts of the world in one of two simple ways:

  • Search for Phandroid within the Google Newsstand app and hit the subscribe button!
  • Hit this link from your phone or tablet to be taken straight to our “Edition” inside Google Newsstand

And that’s it! You’ll get all the latest Android news, reviews and videos sent straight to your phone or tablet. Be sure to take care of that if you haven’t already, and give Google Play Newsstand a try in the Google Play Store (it’ll replace the Play Magazines app)┬áif you’re curious about the whole thing.

    The link worked so I could add it but I couldn’t find it by searching oddly.

  • Max

    my phone still has currents in addition to newstand on it and when I click the link it gives me currents and web browsers as options to open it with but not newstand

    • sdrawkcab25

      same here, so uninstalled currents, then the link opens in chrome, and then when you click on the link in chrome, it opens in newstand…

    I tried seearching for it but nothing. Only found this.

  • McT

    So, why would I want to start using Currents over the Phandroid app that I current use?

  • RozJC

    So…. are you guys going to drop the Phandroid app in favour of this?

    • Lou_Sasshole

      I too would like to know this.

    • No_Nickname90

      *just finds out there’s a Phandroid app*

      • Lou_Sasshole

        Great app, very smooth and still looks nice & minimal.

    • Derek Ross

      No. The Phandroid app is about to be updated to 6 flavors of awesomesauce. You just wait. Those that don’t like awesomesauce can feel free to use Newsstand. :)

      • Lou_Sasshole

        Can you give an ETA?

        • Derek Ross

          No ETA, but very soon. Here’s a little teaser: It’s been updated to add a #HOLOYOLO UI complete with cards and has a bad ass comment system.

            Can you make it make bacon and beer to? Swipe to sizzle or flip to brew?

          • Lou_Sasshole

            Very, very nice.
