Google will simplify the subscription to paid editions
The Google account can now be used not only for identification on websites but also for subscriptions to paid online publications. This follows from the materials of the official blog of the search giant. Users of the service will be able to manage their subscriptions directly, as well as see the materials of their favourite publications in the top of search queries.
Subscription is the best chance to show how much you value and trust the content that publishes publications, says Jim Albrecht, Google Product Director. But as the number of purchased subscriptions grows, managing them becomes more and more difficult and complicated. The new Google initiative will allow you to comfortably interact with all the subscriptions that you have.
Service Subscribe with Google is extremely useful and convenient tool not only for users but also for publishers. Users who subscribe using a Google account will receive the articles of the publications they are subscribed to in the first places in the search queries. It is expected that this way of promoting content will soon be able to attract new resources.
At the moment, Google’s desire to create a single subscription management hub was supported by such publications as The New York Times, Washington Post, Financial Times, Le Figaro and dozens of others. Initially, take advantage of the subscription service Google can only residents of North and South America and some European countries. When the product reaches Russia, it is still unknown.
