I have enjoyed using Google Books since the beginning, the only issue I have is when using read aloud, the page in the viewer doesn't always (or most often) stay synced with what is being read. Then if you stop, it returns to the page in the viewer, not where it stopped reading. Please fix... I do want to compliment the speech team, the synthesized voice is very good. It only stumbles on words with 2 pronunciations, like "live" or "minute".

My experience with this app was super good when it still worked. I use it primarily to listen to audio books while I work, and that feature for me has inexplicably stopped working on my phone at all. It still does work on my laptop but that kinda defeats the purpose. I have enough storage to play the books but they just won't. I've reached out about this and Google has kind of just done nothing about it. The E books are solid but Audible is probably where I should have gone.

Ok so this app was amazing but a few months ago my audiobooks stopped working. I love audiobooks,I used to play them in the car, in the shower or before bed but I can't do that anymore. I contacted the developers and they told me it was a storage problem but I have an sd card and it has the space for it, just in case that wasn't enough I bought google 1 storage. I'm at my wits end and im really frustrated. If nothing can be done I'd at least like a refund.
