Google Play Books for Android app is updated to support e-books upload. Google is slowly rolling out this updated Google Play Books for Android version #3.1.17. This new version allows you to upload your own digital books straight from any Android device using a new ‘Upload to Play Books’ option. Now there is no need to go to Google Play website for the addition of PDFs and EPUB files to your account.
The updated Google Play Books Android app made it easier to transfer the virtual libraries. Google also claims that this updated app will also open books faster and smoother. But no such significant speed upgrade is seen on testing.
This refreshed app also has the ability to dismiss recommended titles in Read Now. It also allows users to switch on the landscape mode while reading books. And you can read books easily in the dark by lowering the reader's brightness settings. The updated Google Play Books for Android app has an improved look and feel of highlights and notes. Some additional improvements in the performance, stability and accessibility are also made.
