Google Currents Baked into Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
Google Currents is becoming one of the best news readers in the Android world and according to Google one of the most used. And no wonder I love it, keeps me up to date, and one of the first apps I tap-on in the morning. But it’s not without competition, with the likes of Flipboard now in the apps store. There is no doubt it is one of the best news, feeder apps in the Google Play Store. This application has been available for anyone since December, but Google is taking a major step to improve its popularity. According to an email Google has been sending to Currents partners, this app will now come pre-installed with all Android 4.1 devices and updates.
Being able to pick and choose which feeds you want, change them when you like, must, be a good thing for everyone.
Google expects a major flux of new users coming to the app. The Search Giant goes as far as saying that page views and readership should vastly increase, due to this action. A statement that may very well be true, as the app will be at Android’s core for everyone. Or at least everyone with Android 4.1, but many of us will have it soon enough.
So there goes a bit of your storage space, guys. It is a good app, though. When you get your Android 4.1 update, or download the Google Currents app, don’t forget to subscribe to our channel!
