Google has just officially unveiled a new app that will combine Google Play Magazines and Google Currents. Dubbed Google Play Newsstand, the app will not only feed you content from your favorite magazine subscriptions, but also from your favorite sources you already have setup in Google Currents.

The app does a good job of allowing you to split views between your magazines and content from Currents, but you can also get it curated in the same spot by strolling through the “Read Now” section of the app.

Having a tough time finding content? A handy search button is there if you’re looking for something specific, and Google will pull up all relevant news sources — whether it’s a magazine subscription or a Currents source — right there. You can also hit the Explore tab and find some great suggestions for many different topics. It’s already available for download in the Google Play Store, so swing by and give it a whirl if, for whatever reason, you’ve been waiting for something like this.
