Audiobooks are coming very soon to Google Play

Audiobooks are coming very soon to Google Play

The hub isn't now accessible, and 9to5Google says that there's no indication of when the store will go live.

Google now offers apps, games, movies, TV shows, music, e-books, and magazines via the Google Play Store. The tear-down also revealed that Play Books will let users cast the audiobooks on Chromecast. But now, things are changing and the Play Store will be adding a special section for the book lovers with Audiobooks. With the upcoming update, there will be a dedicated portion of Google Play, which will keep things more organized. "Pair with Bluetooth to move seamlessly from reading to listening".

The Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Voyage models, meanwhile, now do not support Audible, as confirmed by Audible's help center.

According to reports, the banner that promoted the decision to add audiobooks to the Google Play Store appeared a few days ago.

The world's biggest worries are environmental disasters, not economic collapse
The report assesses the severity of each global risk according to its likelihood and potential impacts. Any breathing space this offers to leaders in the new year should not be squandered, it said.

Then again, things will get a bit more cluttered with the addition of an audiobooks section.

The Audiobooks advertising banner on Play Store itself looks very reasonable to assume that the Audiobooks on Play Store will be the reality soon. However, the section is not live yet and there is no specific mention of when the content will be available for purchase for the masses. Hopefully, if this implantation will actually happen, it will make it easier for customers to actually get these audiobooks and listen to more books along the way. But when Play Store starts offering this service, users will be able to use this service without using a different app from the device. Did you expect this from Google?

The report shows a teaser of a launch of Audio Books on Google Play which may be available as soon as mid or near the end of 2018. As such, fans are advised to stay tuned for more updates.
