Google has taken an important step towards changing the way we watch the internet.
Today it’s announced that it’s introducing a new subscription service called NewsBusters.
The news service will be available for $9.99 a month and will be free for people who subscribe to Google Plus, the premium news service that has grown to include a number of popular video and podcast apps.
NewsBuster will also include access to Google’s NewsBundle service, a bundle of free apps and services that have become a standard for mobile users.
The subscription service is designed to offer users the same access to the news as they do to Google+, the main search engine for the internet, with no ads.
“We’re excited to introduce NewsBusting as a subscription service, and we think it will be a game-changer for people in search of the very best content,” says Paul Graham, vice president of advertising at Google.
“With NewsBaster, we’re bringing new ways to discover the world around us, and it’s going to change the way people get the news.”
NewsBuster launched last month with over 600,000 subscribers in the US and UK.
It has more than 3.4 million monthly active users.
“NewsBusters is a free service that offers a wide range of great content for anyone interested in the world’s news,” says Sarah Pappas, vice-president of editorial, NewsBusters.
“We’re adding a subscription to NewsBasters to get more relevant news to our users.
We’ll also make NewsBricks available to more news publishers over time.”
Google’s News app is a mainstay of Android phones and the company’s search service has been a popular source of news.
News Busters aims to deliver the same service to mobile devices, with the new subscription offering.
News is delivered to users through a number a mobile apps, and users can also subscribe to a free Google+ news service.
News apps are also available for iPhones and iPads.
“Google+ is one of the best ways to keep up to date with the world, and NewsBits delivers an alternative to reading news for the masses,” said Andrew Parnell, vice chairman of Google+ at the company.
“The news content delivered to News Binders is the best news and information available on the web, and there are a number that are worth subscribing to.”
I’m also excited about the partnership with our friends at the podcasting and podcasting podcast service SoundCloud, which gives NewsBinders access to their content.
We hope to see NewsBands on the SoundCloud app soon.
“News Busters is also rolling out to Android TV devices.
Google+ has been one of Google’s main rivals in the mobile space for a while, and its users have been eager to get a news app.
News has been available for Google Plus for a number years and now it will make its way to Android TVs as well.
News buster is available in a number Android TV app stores.”
Google is a huge part of the world of news, and that’s why we’re building an app that delivers the same news experience in the same way that we deliver it on Google+,” says Parnella.”
For us, News Buster is the next step in this evolution, and I’m excited to see how it evolves with Android TV.”
“Google is a huge part of the world of news, and that’s why we’re building an app that delivers the same news experience in the same way that we deliver it on Google+,” says Parnella.
