Google today released a new version of Google Play Newsstand, its magazine and news reading app, for Android devices. Google fine-tuned the experience so magazine articles are easier to read within Newsstand. Google says users will now see a list of articles with big images from each magazine that can be toggled through and read. Further, Play Newsstand has been refreshed with Google's Material Design. That means it has bigger images, more contextual headers, and smoother transitions. Google says it is easy to swipe left and right to change topics, or up and down to dive deeper into individual topics. Last, the Explore section gains more topic cards so users can discover content that interests them. Google Play Newsstand is free to download from the Google Play Store. Google has updated a handful of its applications ahead of Android L's general release, which is expected to arrive in the next few weeks.
