Yahoo! and Google to release news readers

Yahoo! is expected to launch a news and social reader, called Livestand, next Wednesday, All Things D reported today. And hot on its heels will be Google’s reader, code named Propeller, which could be unveiled as early as next week as well.

The online giants will be competing with Flipboard and others like it, as digital media consumers’ habits shift increasingly to using apps to sift through news and information.

Flipboard currently is the most used social and news reader. It has been downloaded four million times and partners with more than 50 publishers, according to PCMag.
