Google Currents Available Worldwide

If you've been downloading Google Currents through unofficial channels, you won't have to do that anymore. Previously found only in the United States, Google Currents is now available across the globe.

Launched in December 2011, Google Currents is essentially an app for Android and iOS that gathers RSS feeds onto an easy-to-read magazine layout. Think of it as Google's answer to Pulse or Flipboard. To date, Google has seen nearly 400 publisher editions and over 14,000 self-produced editions available on Google Currents.

A new dynamic sync feature is also added to Google Currents, with content constantly refreshed when you're reading news off Google Currents. If you're worried about a reduced battery life from the constant syncing, Google claims that the dynamic sync feature will use a minimum of the phone or tablet's battery, bandwidth and storage.

Going international also means that Google is prepared for multiple languages. Other than its global availability, Google Currents also adds Google Translate into its mainframe, providing support for up to 38 languages. However, this is still subjected to whether international publishers, through Google Currents Producer, choose to make their publications available globally and enable auto-translation.

Android users can make your way to Google Play and push the app to your Android devices, while iOS users can visit the iOS App Store for the app.
