How To Manually Add An RSS Feed To Google Play Newsstand

When we checked out Play Newsstand, we weren’t sure if you could add RSS feeds manually. Thanks to intrepid Lifehacker reader aniruddh, we now know the answer: kind of!

By copying the entire RSS feed URL and pasting it into the search box in Newsstand, you can find a box you can add under “Feeds”. This method seems to work, although for a couple of sample feeds I got an endless loading loop. Others might not show up at all if the app doesn’t properly detect them.

It’s a bit of a pain, particularly because copying a long link on a touchscreen device isn’t the most intuitive input method, but it is possible. This just makes Newsstand that much more attractive for the casual reader.
