My phone was freezing up when I started to read aloud a book. My problem was fixed by turning off the lock screen. But now my phone is always exposed because I use this app too frequently to have any issues with it. My problem is resolved but no thanks to Google. I still cant make the other voices in a voice set work for reading aloud a book I still have to listen to the default first voice in a voice set. Now I don't know if it's Google Play Books issue Google text to speech issue. I have reported this problem on both apps but still it isn't fixed. It has been over a year.
So happy with the new addition to place books in the read shelf after reading. Im terrible at remembering if I've read a book or not lol
Hi friends this is a cool app and i loved it so much there are free books and lot of exciting stories and knowledge , I suggest you to download it. The concept of google play book is also nice and its not much boring, there is feature of 3D page turn which I loved, thanks GOOGLE for making a wonderful app, THANKS a lot. It is easy to use it and also the books are helpful so please download it BY ARUN RAI
I really like this app. I use it on my Galaxy Tab S3 for reading (obviously). The use of material design makes it a very visually attractive app and it is very easy to use. The one feature that I would request is better definitions when you long press a word. On the Kindle app it incorporates Wikipedia into the search results with is very helpful. The Night Light feature works very well and I love how it adjusts the setting depending on the time.
Bloatware. Have never used it (I use two other products and don't need a 3rd), never will, but still have to suffer this nonsense of pointless updates every 5 minutes.
Love the layout, and 3D page turning response; very fluid. Notes and highlights!!*One of the lesser-known features : Google Drive integration for notes and highlights! Once activated, a Google Doc is created for every novel opened that automatically populates notes and highlights with dynamic links back to the novel. Unbeatable! Ah! I had been waiting for such a feature to make the full switch from iBooks... Now I have and am loving it. As a teacher, I needed these features and I can now teach all literature with Google Play Books. Love it, thank you!
You can now use your stylus to highlight and select text while reading.
Stability and performance improvements.
