Google Play Store To Add Audiobooks Sometime Soon

The banner may have been a mistake, but it confirms the previous rumours about upcoming launch of audiobooks in the Play Store. Further reports also indicate that the move is expected to rival Amazon and its long list of retailers in the audiobook market. Whenever that is. Google Play will also have a huge opportunity to capture a large share of the market just seeing how many Android users there are around the globe. With audiobooks coming soon, the Google Play Store will expand its media offerings, which now include apps, TV show, movies, music, and digital books. The upgrade will open the door to a whole new section of the Play Store, loaded with the latest and greatest audiobooks from leading authors.
