A Lot’s New at Flipboard: Android, Google+, YouTube and Five New International Editions
Inside Flipboard / June 22, 2012
For the first time, Flipboard is available in the Google Play Store as a free download for Android fans worldwide. You’ll also find it in the Amazon App Store for the Kindle and the Barnes & Noble NOOK Store. In the United States, Flipboard will come pre-installed on the new Samsung Galaxy S III when purchased from leading carriers, including AT&T.
We’re also expanding Flipboard’s utility today by adding two new major services: Google+ and YouTube. Now you can connect your Google+ account to Flipboard and see all the activity in your Circles in a beautiful magazine format. You can â€œ+1â€ (Google’s version of â€œlikeâ€) any post from within Flipboard, or tap the status update to share, comment and reply.
The YouTube experience is similarly transformed, as video browsing becomes more like reading a magazine. Flip through your subscriptions, uploads and favorites, or enjoy popular feeds like Most Viewed, Trending Videos and Top Favorites. (We’ll have tips and tricks on using Google+ and YouTube on Flipboard in this blog in the coming days.)
Finally, Flipboard is now available in five new editions—Germany, Italy, Korea, Netherlands and Spain—with a fully translated interface and tons of reading recommendations curated by local editors. Anyone can explore great content from around the world by tapping on the red ribbon, tapping â€œThis Weekâ€ and selecting your Content Guide Edition.
