Google Play Introduces Audiobooks: Assistant Can Read Books In Spanish
Google's Play Store is making a bigger push into selling audiobooks, the company announced Tuesday, putting it in more direct competition with Amazon-owned Audible. You'll be able to listen to them in the Google Play Books app, through a web browser, or with Assistant. Start your morning by listening to "Ready Player One" with the Assistant on Google Home, and continue listening with the Google Play Books app on your Pixel. It allows you to seamlessly start listening to a book on your phone, continue it on your Google Home speakers while you do chores at home and play it on your Android AutoPlay in your auto while on the move. As far as how audiobooks does on Google Play, it seems that most audiobook features are already available.
In the audiobook arena, Amazon is the clear incumbent with its Audible service.
With the audiobook users will now be able to experience their favourite literature read out by simply instructing Google Assistant - "Ok Google, read my book". This association between Google Assistant and audiobooks is limited to Android phones and smart speakers globally in English though. The membership gives users credit for one downloadable audiobook a month, regardless of price and up to 30 percent off regular prices on subsequent purchases. Obviously, Google wants you to buy from them so this deal may be worth it if you've had your eye on a particular release for a while.
