Audiobooks Will Be the Next Google Service to Ignore (Premium)

Audiobooks Will Be the Next Google Service to Ignore (Premium)”

That includes movies, TV shows, music, books, comics, and more. Now, it seems that audiobooks are all set to join the list.

A glimmer of a shadow of a possibility that Google Play will soon be offering audiobooks has the bibliophiles of the internet buzzing. As spotted by 9to5Google, an audiobook banner has been added to the Play Store, though for now the new section doesn't seem to have been activated. You can see that these apps are downloaded frequently-some over a billion times-but they come with Android, and I think these figures are suspect. The pricing details as well as geographical availability of audiobooks are also a mystery at this point. As reported by 9to5Google, a banner has appeared in the Books section of the app, mentioning a 50 percent off on your first purchase to celebrate the arrival.

All that remains is for Google to flip the switch on its end and you'll be able to feed your audiobook obsession through Google Play.

According to AppBrain, Play Store now houses over 3.6 million application and it is on its way to reach one trillion app downloads to date.
