How to export your Google Reader feeds [video]

RIP google readerNow that Google Reader is on its last leg, what can users do to continue reading their RSS feeds? Luckily Google makes it simple to export your feeds.

Many Google users don’t realize this, but Google makes it very easy to export your content for archiving or moving to another service. Google has a service called Takeout where you can audit and export all of your content.

All you have to do is go to and sign in with your Google account. Click on the “Choose services” section and then click on Reader. Click on “Create Archive” and Google will then compress all of your content into a zip file for easy exporting. This could take a few minutes so be patient. The archive file will be downloaded to your computer and you can choose what you want to do with it.

Alternatively, Google Reader users will be prompted to create and download their feed information when they log into Reader until the plug is officially pulled on July 1st.

Check out the video below for a more detailed explanation.

With Reader gone, what apps and services will you use to keep up with your feeds?
