Google Assistant Amps Up Support Of Play Book For Better Audio Book Control
Google gave additional support to Play Books as Play Store got a new area for the long-form audio format. Google integrated Assistant Routines sometime back. Play Books was recently updated with their “Smart Resume” Bookmarks. It is also revamped for better speed controls. The Family Library was expanded to include more countries. Thanks to Smart Resume, Play Books will provide ease of understanding by automatically rewinding to the beginning of the sentence that you paused at.
On the mobile apps, you can now save your favorite moments in an audiobook with a new Bookmarks functionality. A new icon will let users save their current spot for quick future access, just like in an ebook.
Currently, the playback speed can start from 0.75x and can go up to 2x. There is a total of 7 speeds. With the new update, the playback speed starts at 0.5x and goes on till 3x. With the Family Library, one can share ebooks and audiobooks with five members. The 13 new countries on the list are Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Chile, Mexico, Japan (audiobooks only) and South Africa. Play Movies & TV also got updates this week. Play Music is yet to see any significant update.
