Google Play Books is finally available in India. If you head over to the Google Play store, you’ll see that the interface has been re-arranged to include a new section—Books. The Play Store now has two sections: Apps and Books. Selecting Apps will take you to the old app store, where you can download apps and games, while selecting Books will take you to Google Play Books, where you can browse through and download books.
Google Play Books has a wide variety of books you can buy or download for free. Like the rest of Google Play, Books too has been arranged in various sections, including Top Selling, Top Free, New Arrivals in Fiction and New Arrivals in Non-Fiction. You can also browse through categories such as Biographies, Children’s Books, Cooking, Fiction & Literature, History and Romance.
Your library is at your fingertips no matter where you are. With Google Play you can read on the device of your choice. And with your books in the cloud you can read on the web, a phone, or a tablet and pick up right where you left off.
Users will be able to discover, purchase and read books on Android phones and tablets, your computer – you can purchase and read books on the Google Play store and read in your web browser. Users can also read books on iPhones and iPads i.e., in the Google Play Books app.
The Play Books app was also updated today for performance and UI improvements. There is a drop-down menu in the library that allows you to filter books by type.
The Play Books app is also available for download on the Google Play store. The app itself is free to download, but you need to download or add books to read them.
