Audiobooks now available on Google Play Store

Posted January 25, 2018

While Google Play Store was already the go to place for all games, movies, music, apps and eBooks, the brand has officially completed their ecosystem by introducing audiobooks making it the complete experience anyone would expect from a new smartphone or tablet they would buy.

The company said Tuesday it is releasing audiobooks on Google Play in nine languages across 45 countries. On Google Play, you can buy a single audiobook at an affordable price, with no commitments.

It's easy to pick up where you left off even if you switch devices, and you can also share your favorite titles with the entire clan through Family Library for no extra charge.

Announced in a blog post today, Google has begun selling audiobooks from its Play Store.

Just long press on the Home button or say "Ok Google, read my book" to get started.

Audiobooks are now finally available on the Google Play Store - the fact that they weren't there to begin with is somewhat surprising. To celebrate the launch of audiobooks, the company is offering many best-sellers for under $10.

The company is marketing the new service with a sale on popular audiobook titles including "Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" by J.K. Rowling, Fire & Fury by Michaelk Wolff and "1984" by George Orwell. People can buy a single audiobook at a time and without any commitment to buy more, said Greg Hartrell, head of product management at Google Play Books in a blog January 23.

Google Assistant is also able to play any audiobooks bought through the Play Store. Google really only has one killer feature that might entice Audible listeners away from its massive catalogue of audiobooks, and that's family sharing. This association between Google Assistant and audiobooks is limited to Android phones and smart speakers globally in English though. So, if you are into audiobooks, it will be a good time to grab a few for cheap.

"Ok Google, stop playing in 20 minutes" "OK, Google, who wrote this?" A free preview will be provided if you want to check out the audiobook.

It should be noted that the audiobooks service does not require any subscription.
