Google Play Newsstand Update Brings My Library, Colourful Action Bar, & More


Google Keep for Android was not the only app that received a major update today. The company also rolled out a major update to Play Newsstand that bumped the version number to 3.2 and introduced some major and colorful changes.

The action bar in the Play Newsstand app will now change colors with every news category, which gives the app a polished look and feel. 

Apart from this, Google has also combined the My News and My Magazines section into a My Library section. This change makes Play Newsstand less cluttered and browsing around the app less confusing. The full change-log of the update is below:

  • My News and My Magazines now combined in new My Library section

  • New Read Now category bar is swipeable and auto-hides

  • Action bar changes color for each news category

The update can take up to a few days to show up on your Android device since its a staged roll-out. However, you can always sideload the APK manually from here to enjoy the updated version of Play Newsstand right away.
