Web Reader for Google Play Magazines announced for Google Chrome browser

Google has announced that those who have purchased magazines from Google Play will now be able to read some of those magazines in Google Chrome, allowing them to use their computer’s browser in addition to their Android phone or tablet.

Google didn’t say whether the web reader service will be available on other browsers as well, but even if it is restricted to only Chrome, I’d suspect it would be so only for a little while in the beginning. There is also no mention of how the web reader can be accessed, so I guess it hasn’t exactly been launched yet.

Would you would like to be able to read magazines on your computer, or do you find your tablet or phone more suitable for the task? Do let us know in the comments.
