Google Play Books arrives in India
It’s been just under a year that Google introduced its Google Play Store. An answer to the increasing competition from Apple and Amazon, the Play store is a digital entertainment hub where you can find, consume and share apps and games on your Android phone or tablet.
Google is adding books functionality to Google Play for people in India. The Google Play Store has thousands of Indian titles on offer, and that includes titles from new releases to eternal classics. Books from well-read Indian authors such as Amish Tripathi, Devdutt Pattanaik and APJ Abdul Kalam can be found on the store, plus many international bestsellers.
Books on Google Play caters to a wide audience offering many titles and many ways to access and read them. And the fact that your library is literally at your fingertips no matter where you are is a great boon to the users, especially a service that is provided by Google. Google Play allows you to read on the device of your choice: the web, a phone, or a tablet and pick it up right where you left off when switching between devices.
The many ways you can access Google Books are:
- Android phones and tablets – you can begin reading books bought by you instantly in the Google Play Books app.
- Your computer – you can read in your web browser.
- iPhones and iPads – you will be able to read books in the Google Play Books app.
