There is always something new and exciting cooking up at Google. It has been revealed that the search giant will be releasing a subscription based access to news content on Google Play soon. A little bit of digging on the JavaScript of the web version of Google’s Play Store by the Android Police blog showed several lines of text that mention “Google Play News” asking users to “sign in to purchase this News Edition Subscription". Most interestingly, the Play Store CSS shows that News is going to be colour-coded as bright yellow, showing that it will be a standalone section. Currently, Apps section is green and Books section is blue in colour. Essentially, with the roll-out of the News section on Google Play, you will be able to buy subscription for single or multiple newspapers. You can even have recurring subscriptions. The code text is quite similar to that of the Magazines section of the Play Store, which makes a lot of sense since both are essentially based around subscribing to media outlets. A lot of work is still being done to work on the section as it keeps changing with the Magazines icon as a placeholder. It can be safe to assume that this feature will be up by Google I/O in mid-May.
