Posted June 14, 2018 09:07:00The company announced today that it has opened the doors to e-books that are short, readable, and don’t require you to have a computer to read them.
The company says the short e-book format allows users to “listen to and learn from books that they have already read and enjoyed.”
Google Books, which launched last year, is the most widely used ebook-reading service.
It’s currently available in the US, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, and Canada.
Google said that the service will expand to Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and South Korea later this year.
“We’re thrilled to announce that our new short ebooks are now available on the Google Play store, so you can browse, download, and read them with ease,” said Andrew Pomerantz, Google Books product manager.
“With this update, you’ll also find that there’s even more to read in Google Books than you could ever imagine.”
Google’s short ebook format is currently only available for the US.
However, the company is now planning to open e-readers in countries that don’t have Google Books, including France, Japan and South Africa.
Google also said that it’s working on new products that will be more useful for readers.
For example, it’s planning to bring the app that helps people find books from around the world to Android and iOS.
