The IT giant Google announced that it will discontinue its Google News magazine service. The move will be effective from on December 18, 2023.
The IT company said that any magazines you purchased and that are available within the Google News apps or news.google.com to your library of magazines will be removed.
“Support for magazine content in Google News is being discontinued beginning on December 18, 2023, which means if you previously purchased or subscribed to magazines, access from Google News apps or news.google.com to your library of magazines will be removed,” a post published by the Google team in the Google News Help Forum read.
So, if there are magazines on Google platforms, you have time until December 18, 2023 to export them, otherwise those files will be removed and you would not be able to access to the old ones anymore.
“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,” statement from Google read.
Get magazines on your E-mail ID
The IT company has asked users to send “an email with the subject line “An update to Google News magazine support” which will contain a link to user’s download page and/or a unique link to refund request form if eligible.”
So don’t be late. Export your magazines and/or submit the form to claim your refund until December 18, 2023.
