Google announces new features for Play Books:
In January, Google launched Google Play Books: an audio bookstore and a direct competitor of Audible. Today Google announced a handful of updates on its blog that should bring a better user experience. According to the article, you can now place markers wherever you want in the audiobook, so that you can then return to it.
There are also many new and updated features, such as Smart Curriculum, Speed Control, and Family Library.
Smart Curriculum continues the prayer book in which you stopped it, instead of the exact word, so that you do not feel any confusion.
The Routines feature for the Google Assistant now also supports audio books that can be added to the Google Home application.
The Family Library may not be a new feature for all PlayBooks users: it allows you to share audiobooks and e-books with up to five family members.
The good news is that access is extended to 13 additional countries: Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Chile, Mexico and South Africa. Japan joins the party, but only for audiobooks.
All these functions are available on Android and iOS devices, as well as in the Google Assistant.
