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 “+1” (Google’s version of “like”) 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 “This Week” and selecting your Content Guide Edition.

Happy flipping,
