The closure of Google News in December 2014 has left us users without being able to download their new official Google News application , which has caused a small problem.
The new Google News application replaces Play Newsstand , with which since a few days ago there is no way to download Newsstand from Google Play, it is no longer available in Spain, and whoever installs the Google News APK manually will see how few minutes will disappear from your devices.
The web application
In the press release of the closing of Google News in Spain the company informs us that to continue reading the news and magazines of Google Play now we must use the web version of Play Newsstand .
If you were a Google Play Newsstand user and you want to access the content of your news and magazines, you can do so in the Play Newsstand web application .
- Web application: Google Play Newsstand
The web version of Google Play Kiosk is fully functional, we can continue reading all the news and access all the magazines purchased from Google Play, but it does not offer us the same experience as its official application.
Install your official application
If we have uninstalled the Google Play Newsstand application there will no longer be a way to download it again from the Play Store. Now the only solution we have left is to install your APK manually from APK Mirror:
- Download APK: Google Play Newsstand 4.7.1
The new in English of Play Newsstand is Play Newsstand, and the latest version launched by Google was 4.7.1 . Once the application is installed manually we can enjoy our news and magazines from its application.
Do not install Google News
Do not install the new version Google News 5.0 in Spain, after a few minutes the application will automatically be disabled , it will disappear from your Android device.
Does not let you install Play Newsstand?
If you installed Google News 5.0 manually and it disappeared then it will give you an error when trying to install Newsstand, since you will try to install a previous version.
If you go to the Settings> Applications you will probably not find the Google News application. The application is disabled and hidden . To uninstall Google News we can use the Easy Uninstaller tool .
That application will detect that we have installed Google News and will allow us to uninstall it so we can go back and install Google Play Newsstand again.
At the moment Google is not disabling the Play Newsstand application in Spain , it is only doing it with Google News, so do not install the new application.
