The lights are on
In celebration of today's Call of Duty: Ghosts cover announcement, we're pleased to announce that the Google Play Magazine edition of Game Informer is now included in our digital subscription plan via the GameStop Power Up Rewards Pro program and digital-only subscriptions. Joining the current stable on web browsers, iPad, and Android, the Google Play Magazine edition allows Game Informer to reach all sizes of Android phones and tablets.
Digital subscribers who are fans of Game Informer magazine's print edition can now enjoy a one-to-one digital duplicate of the layout in Google Play Magazine. The straightforward design means a smaller file size and faster download. Pinch-to-zoom functionality provides a closer look at text and imagery and an optional "text only" view allows a more book-like reading experience.
Current digital subscribers can now gain immediate access to the Google Play Magazine edition by using the same email address and password provided while registering their digital magazine subscription on gameinformer.com. As an additional layer of verification, Google will ask for credit card information at the cost of $0.00. Don’t worry, you won’t be charged anything. This is Google’s way of verifying who you are.
Readers interested in only signing up for the Google Play Magazine edition may do so at our official page for $19.99 or purchase single issues for $4.99 or less. To gain access to several editions of Game Informer digital including Google Play Magazine, browser, iPad, and Android, head here. Print subscribers interested in switching to digital can do so here.

Some in the comments are expressing confusion on how to link a current subscription on Google Play Magazines. Here is the simple 5-step process taken from the description on our Google Play Magazine page. For now you should go through this process on your Android device. The "for current subscribers" option doesn't appear on browsers currently.
1) Make sure that you’re signed into your Google account
2) Tap “Subscribe” located above – (don’t worry, you won’t be charged)
3) Tap “For current subscribers”
4) Enter the same email address and password that you created while registering your digital magazine account on gameinformer.com
5) As an additional layer of verification, Google will ask for your credit card information at the cost of $0.00. You won’t be charged anything. This is Google’s way of verifying who you are.

Fantastic! I love Google Play, primarily for the unlimited music feature. I'll be sure to check out the magazine aspect as well.
Thank you so much! I have been hoping for this for a while now.
Awesome, a cool way to view an awesome magazine.
how do you link a already digital only account to Google play magazine???
thanks got it linked
Sounds good, sounds good. I'll be sure to reup.
This is great because the standalone GI Digital was a traveshamockery. 500+MB downloads and it was fidgety and crash prone. Simply awful. This now reads like Wired and is manageable on my Nexus 7.
thanks for the information.
This is way nicer than the abomination that Android app was. Love it so far!
When i click subscribe, i don't get that "current subscribers" prompt.
It works when you subscribe from the device, not on the PC. I ended up using the link above and then doing some "chrome to phone" magic to get subscribed.
