Google announced that it will discontinue its Google News magazine service starting on December 18, 2023. Any magazines you purchased and that are available within the Google News apps or to your library of magazines will be removed.

Ashwarya from the Google team posted this news in the Google News Help Forum saying, "Support for magazine content in Google News is being discontinued beginning on December 18, 2023, which means if you previously purchased or subscribed to magazines, access from Google News apps or to your library of magazines will be removed."

You have until December 18, 2023 to export your magazines to keep them, otherwise they will be removed and you won't have access to the old ones anymore.

Google added, "To continue to access previously purchased magazine content, we are providing the opportunity to export and save each purchased issue. In some cases, purchased magazines contain interactive elements that cannot be downloaded and saved for future access, and we are offering a refund for this content." Google said they will send "an email with the subject line “An update to Google News magazine support” which will contain a link to your download page and/or a unique link to your refund request form if eligible." You will have the opportunity to export your magazines and/or submit the form to claim your refund until December 18, 2023.

Here is more on how to get refunds.

Note: Google initially wrote the 1sts, but updated the details to be the 18th.

Update: Statement from Google: "In Google News, only a handful of people access magazines each month since new magazine purchases stopped being available in 2020. The few remaining subscribers have time to download their previously purchased magazine subscriptions or to get a refund for any interactive subscriptions."
