Can I import data from Google Reader by signing into a third-party reader using my Google account?

Can Google Reader be imported to other readers only by uploading or through sign-in Google at readers?

One option is downloading the Google Reader data files, then uploading to the other readers. But without data file, if on a third party reader one signs into Google (Reader) account, then does the data get connected to the third-party reader, even if Google reader gets closed?

    Use google Takeout to get your google Reader Feed Data! And then import it to another Feed Reader! :D

    Some services will import everything without the download/upload thing. Feedly, for example, and Reeder for Mac/iPad Also, many of the Android-based options. So look into it on a per-service basis.

      What about the current feedly android app?

      It logs into to Google reader and displays feeds. Does it import the feeds onto it's own system? If yes, then :

      Would it continue to display even if Google reader shuts down?

      Feedly is planning on replacing Google Reader completely. Use that service and you will eventually be asked if you want to switch from a Google Reader account to a Feedly one. This hasn't happened yet, but will well before July.

    Using you can simply use your Google Reader log on to link and import all your Google Reader feeds in Feedly. Go to and follow the ultra simple instructions there.

      You mean after importing google feeds through sign-in to Feedly ( both desktop and android app ) but without uploading data file the google feeds would get imported and "STAY" imported if google reader discontinues?

    try downloading the data files . i don't think signing in through google account will import your data to other readers because when google reader gets closed all user related data should be deleted .(unless google decides otherwise)

      The asker already gets what you are offering. Look at my response for the answer to the question. My solution requires no downloading, It's a seamless transfer of info between Google Reader and Feedly.
