Google Play Magazines app updated with new UI

New 'Holo light' UI brings Magazines in line with latest Play Music and Play Store apps

Google has updated the Play Magazines app for Android to verison 2.0, bringing a new, lighter user interface. The new version of the app draws inspiration from the recent updates to Google Play Music and the Play Store, both of which have received UI updates in the past month or so. Everything's generally a lot lighter and brighter, and there's a new slide-out sidebar allowing you to switch between Read Now, Library and Shopping views. The official changelog also lists bug fixes in this new version of Play Magazines.

If you're already using Play Magazines, hit "My Apps" in the Play Store app to update. Alternatively we've got a Google Play web link up above.

  • Really love the update
  • Enjoying the new look and consistency across their apps. However, as many have said a Holo Dark option would be nice.
  • I'm not sure if this is new or not, but I'm just now noticing the "Free for print subscribers" option on some magazines. That's a nice bonus.
  • @Alex Dobie Thanks for the post. looking cool
