Google Play Newsstand receives version 4 update with new UI on board

Google Play Newsstand is a nice app for Android and iOS that offers subscription services to magazines, new feeds and server-generated topical feeds. However, the app seems to be ignored, as Google has not been putting out updates of its app for two years. Previously, back in October 2014, the biggest search engine on Earth released a major update, introducing bigger images and transitional animations.


Google has just released the update version 4.0 for its Play Newsstand. This year’s update mostly focuses on design changes like what we saw in the most recent update. Basically, the app is now more visually appealing with well-organized sections.

From the very moment that you opened the app, you will see a big difference. Accordingly, the briefing section is now covered with the most popular news stories, making it much easier for users to stay up-to-date. There are also four new sections including “For you”, “Library”, “Explore” and “Read Later” at the bottom of the screen.

With the update version 4.0, Google has redesigned the Search Bar, introducing a brand new look, and it now acts as the standard Google Search bar, something you always see on any Android phones in the market. The new Search bar is now located in the top of the screen and offers suggestions, a menu section, voice commands and even more.

There are also some new features you can find the Settings of the app. In general, the new update for Google Play Newsstand brings in faster performance, a new look and some new features. This year, Google has released many updates for its app across platforms. Earlier this month, Google rolled out a big update for its Gmail app for iOS, introducing a much-improved design and faster navigation. Besides, Google launched its new pair of smartphones, Google Pixel and Pixel XL that challenge other top-tier smartphones in the market including Apple iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7.
