On Monday, Google has teased a banner promoting the arrival of audiobook and today the search-engine giant has launched its Audiobooks services on the Google Play Store. It is available in India and other 45 countries across the world.
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”. The books will be available in nine languages and can listen on Android, iOS, Chromecast, Android Auto, Android wear and web platforms.
The data will be synced together across all the platforms, which will allow users to start their book on one device and finish it on another. Further, one can even use the Assistant for bedtime stories or play for specific time by saying “Ok Google, stop playing in 20 minutes” and will store the progress for the next time.
