Google has announced that it will discontinue the support for magazine content in Google News from December 18, 2023. Users will no longer be able to access their previously purchased or subscribed magazines from the Google News app or news.google.com website.
However, Google is allowing users to export and save their previously purchased magazines. “To continue to access previously purchased magazine content, we are providing the opportunity to export and save each purchased issue. In some cases, purchased magazines contain interactive elements that cannot be downloaded and saved for future access, and we are offering a refund for this content, the company said in the Google News Help Forum.
Further, users affected by this change will receive an email with the subject line “An update to Google News magazine support.” The email will contain a link to the download page or a unique link to request a refund, if eligible.
Users can export their magazines or submit the refund claim form until December 18, 2023. Additionally, users can refer to Learn about Refunds on Google Play if they encounter any issues with their refunds.
