Android: Google has announced that it’s revamping its Magazines app, combining it with Currents, and turning it into Newsstand. Now, in addition to magazines, you can add newspapers and manage all your subscriptions in one place.

The app is currently rolling out and will replace the Play Magazines app. However, you can browse many of the subscriptions available right now here. If you previously used Currents, everything you subscribed to should be migrated over to the new app. iOS users will get to hang on to the old Currents app until Google builds a Newsstand app for them.

Unfortunately, it’s still unclear if you can manually add your own RSS feeds, but there’s already a pretty big selection of sites that have contributed their own feeds (including ours!) to the shop. While it should be rolling out soon, eager users can grab the APK from Android Police below.
