The company has, however, not disappointed its users.  Google has with this latest decision pushed all those who were using the Current app to the new Google Play Newsstand application.

In the version 2.3 of the Currents application, which was released on Wednesday to Google Play, the update has shut down the Currents app and asked the users to move over to the Newsstand app.

As the company is honouring subscriptions made in Currents on Newsstand, the users are not actually losing out on anything.

When a user opens Newsstand for the first time, the Currents will feature a code that will get disabled itself.

"Newsstand updates and replaces Google Currents, which is no longer available for download or use," Google said.

"For existing Currents users, all your subscriptions will instantly transfer and be available for you in Newsstand. Discover a better way to enjoy all the news you love with Google Play Newsstand now," Google added.

The Newsstand application will broaden Currents' features, which will not only include news sources but magazines, newspaper subscriptions and many more.

Besides, Google has joined hands with a number of major publishers namely The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, People, Wired, Vanity Fair, and Guardian in order to deliver content to the readers.
 
Apart from that, the iOS users won’t be able to use the Currents application once Newsstand app makes its way in.
