Google Play Adds Free Magazines For Print Subscribers

Digital magazine subscriptions can be a tough sell. On one hand, you have the convenience of just carrying around your tablet, and still being able to access a large number of periodicals, as well as the richer content afforded by the digital format. Then again, a print magazine never runs out of batteries and can be much more durable. Especially if you’re an existing subscriber, getting your magazines by mail each month, it can be hard to take the dive and invest in a digital subscription, and paying the extra costs that imposes. Luckily for some of you, Google has begun to offer free subscriptions to certain magazines in the Play Store for existing print subscribers.

Now, this doesn’t cover every title around, but if you subscribe to magazines published by Condé Nast or Time, you might be in luck. Go to the Play Store and look up the magazine you subscribe to. Hit the subscription button, and you may see an option for a free digital subscription for print customers.

You’ll have to verify your subscription first, and just how you do that varies by publisher, but once you do you’ll have a free digital version waiting for you as long as your print subscription lasts. Not too shabby!
